As I briefly mentioned, we decided this past fall to take the plunge and attend the Atlanta Gift Market. It begins this weekend and runs through mid next week.
Sometimes I think we must be crazy. Two big shows in one month? And to top it off, we have a brand new booth and the largest CHA release ever, including new double sided heavy stock papers (yes, I caved. Those who know me well know that I prefer a thinner paper, but alas, I am in the minority and I have to listen to my customers! We are still running the mini papers on thinner stock - perfect for rosette making, decoupage, etc.)
While we are taking mostly products to Gift that exist in our line already (but only those that make a good crossover into stationary, gift giving or package embellishment) we did create a couple of things specifically for this market, such as one of the Bingo Placecard sets you see above (this is the "Whimsy" set). They are scored at the top and fold over like a "t-pee". The label looks like one of our stickers but it is actually built into the artwork. They come 6 to a pack. We have this set, a "Classic" set that just says "Guest" and a Xmas and Thanksgiving set.
And speaking of Atlanta, they got hit with a snowstorm, worse than what we got here (we got about 2-3"). We are still hoping to make it out on Wednesday. You just never know what January is going to bring you in the South! It could be snow or it could be 60 degrees. Mother nature always keeps us guessing.
More peeks coming soon!
