January Buying Trip!

Janie just returned from one of her annual buying trips to AmericasMart Atlanta. It’s where Retailers go to Shop! “The complex ranks first as the world’s largest trade mart/trade show facility with more than seven million square feet of enclosed space.”

As usual, Janie made the most of her time there and reported busy showrooms and happy retailers! According to the Market Report from Gifts and Decorative Accessories publication – “If AmericasMart’s winter show kickoff this week is any indication, 2015 looks to be a good year. According to exhibitors, attendees were optimistic, coming off of a solid holiday season.”

She was able to meet several new vendors and of course place orders with some of our favorites like Nora FlemingRoot Candles and Savannah Bee Company, just to name a few! We are so excited about the new products due to arrive very soon! Be sure to check our Facebook page for updates! We love being able to bring in new items that we know our customers will LOVE!
