January 27, 2015Never mind the sheep or the goat. I predict 2015 will be the Year of the Parties. That’s because there’s something special about 2015: the major holidays all conveniently fall on or weekends or abut them. Valentine’s Day, July 4th and Halloween each land on Saturdays, and Christmas and New Year’s Days both fall on Fridays, setting the stage for long weekends – and hopefully, lots of parties. Add to the mix lower gas prices, a rehabilitating housing market and an overall economy on the mend, and this year is poised to be full of pluses for ...
January 26, 2015The year 2015 is just a few weeks old, but you’ve likely been to at least one trade show already.

The surprising strength of the American currency was good news for U.S. buyers looking to spend their money wisely. Versus the Euro, the dollar ...

January 13, 2015“Aspirational” – a term flash sites love to use to describe their younger, hipper and more educated and connected shoppers – is starting to encompass a broader market that is increasingly interested in better brands and up-to-the-minute design. And suppliers who are paying attention and playing the game stand to gain in 2015. At last week’s AmericasMart’s winter editions of the International Gift & Home Furnishings and Area Rugs markets, several designers and major companies had product on tap to court a larger, more style-savvy demographic with –here’s another key word – “approachable” price points on design-conscious products. Ann Gish found ...
