Take a deep breath because Market is officially over! Last week my 4 days in Atlanta were awesome! Met with lots of my stores, brainstormed ideas on how to make old lines new and fresh, and worked on getting lots of new product into these empty stores! So what were the number 1 lines for Atlanta.... The Macbeth Collection. Margaret Josephs, the fabulous founder of Macbeth, was in our Atlanta Showroom with Lexi, their awesome sales manager, helping customers see the awesomeness in Macbeth and making it easy to write quick orders. This line has a ton to offer with over 150 patterns that can come on any of the great galvanized tin pieces. If this line isn't great for summer parties, I don't know what is. Their newest hit was the Monoglam program which now offers stores a way to special order Macbeth pieces personalized. I have to say I am already working up an order for myself! Dallas Market was fantastic as well. After 4 days in Atlanta I had one day off and I was back at it! What I love about the Dallas Market is that there is less stress. They offer parking, they have a cafeteria, and there is no fight to become a sardine packed into an elevator. Overall my stores had a good Christmas. Their stores were empty as well and they all needed to be filled! The Dallas Market's number one line was yet again Mixed Bags. These bags were hot! They come in great colors and new shapes that screamed pool bag. The most attractive thing about these bags? The price. Retailing between $6.50-$18.00 there is something for everyone! If this line isn't in your stores it needs to be!
