It’s that time of year again! Our buyers Safisha and Sandra spent a week down in Atlanta at the AmericasMart. It is the world’s single-largest collection of wholesale home, gift and apparel showrooms with more than 7.1 million square feet of exhibition space! We attend the show twice a year, January and July, In January, we set our themes for Christmas, fill in our gift selection for Easter and Spring and do our Summer buying. It’s always interesting to see what the colors of the year will be, and what designs are trending.

The top floors of Building 1 are all the Christmas floors. Its exciting, and kind of crazy, to see the different themes they are showing for the 2023 season. Needless to say, millennial pink is not a trend we will be following! One of our favorites was the old fashioned Christmas with tinsel and glitter.

There are some fun, colorful Christmas ideas better suited to warmer climates, but its just so fun to see the crazy ideas the designers come up with.

One of our favorite Sales Representatives is Drew! We had so much fun with their photo booth. Working 10 hour days can be exhausting, but also a lot of fun!

When we attend exhibitions like AmericasMart, we love to soak up inspiration and gather exciting new ideas for captivating displays. New merchandise is already starting to roll into the store, so shop often and buy it when you see it!
