January Market inspires in holiday, floral, tabletop & more
(Sponsored) From the sought-after permanent showrooms to unique temporaries, AmericasMart® brings the best in the gift market to Atlanta — especially during the upcoming January Market.
“This January, AmericasMart® looks forward to welcoming the gift buying community to Atlanta for The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market®,” said Dave Savula, head of Gift and Apparel Leasing. “From the unmatched depth and breadth of showroom collections to an expertly organized temporary tradeshow, the Market will provide the inspiration, connections and resources gift buyers need to grow their businesses.”
Buyers can expect to find everything they can imagine — and then some. The January Market will be the place to go for designer, on-trend and totally new product. The permanent showrooms create a branded, immersive experience for buyers with a completely unique feel within each showroom. Brands are able to fully dictate the look and feel and experience that buyers will have within their individual showrooms, and that experience is inspiration for how to merchandise those items back at the buyers’ stores.
For buyers looking for completely unique items, hotspots such as Handmade Design, Handmade Jewelry and Global Design in the temporaries plus the Made in America permanent and temporary collections are the places to be.
TEMPORARY COLLECTION HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:
- On Trend Gift is always a hotspot for the gift buyer with a mix of fun and trendy merchandise.
- The Museum Collective, in partnership with the Museum Store Association, launched in July; it features a selection of quality gifts, décor, collectibles and private label products.
- Holiday, Floral, Baskets is great for finding both merchandise for the store and decorations for the holidays throughout the year.
- The spa and personal product collections Body & Soul and the juried Body & Soul LUXE continue to grow.
- The Tabletop & Entertaining, Gourmet Houseware and Gourmet Foods expertly organize entertaining and culinary products. Be sure to stop by the Gourmet Foods collection on an empty stomach.
- HIGH DESIGN is a can’t-miss for any Market-goer. Look for trending, inspirational and totally new product.
Florals will be big: glass vases with permanent botanicals from Winward International and artificial succulents and cacti from Allstate Floral that all look like the real thing fill those respective showrooms.
Buyers should look to Demdaco for unique designs with fun or quirky sayings on mugs, décor and stuffed animals, plus items for the holidays, baby, gifts and outdoors.
Pops of color will be everywhere. Fiesta Dinnerware is a can’t-miss with durable dishes in every color of the rainbow, including items for your table and pantry storage, such as pet food containers with cat or bone shaped handles. Tablescapes have never been brighter.
Metallics in rose gold, copper and silver with florals and foliage fill the Accent Decor showroom. Buyers can find pieces of all sizes and shapes to bring to their shops with this collection.
Cooking and entertainment accessories are all the rave, and Dugan-Bliss & Associates brings to the kitchen counter everything an amateur chef or homemaker would love plus gifts for everyone, with home accessories, garden and outdoor living essentials, candles, kid stuff and even items with your customers’ favorite college sports teams’ logos. Look for stemless wine glasses in trendy colors and wing bags to match.
Majolica tableware and home furnishings, hand-painted ceramics and home décor in brilliant shades are what buyers will find at MacKenzie-Childs.
If your customers also want designer and licensed art, Lenox offers Kate Spade, Disney and more, all in collectibles, tabletop and giftware.
With all of these options, AmericasMart® is the must-visit one-stop-shop for buyers this January, and when buyers come back throughout the year, they have the opportunity to check out new temporaries and the ever-evolving offerings of the permanent collections.
