Fall Into It

So Labor Day came and went and September has officially arrived, bringing with it all of the signs of fall the people of August dread (at least until November rolls around). We paid our respects to summer last week, and by now we’ve all exchanged the obligatory “Can you believe it’s already September?!” small talk while holding our pumpkin spice lattes. (more…)

The Dog Days of Summer

With Labor Day only a few days away, the September issues already on shelves, and most shocking one of all, the return of the pumpkin spice latte in AUGUST, it’s easy to feel like summer is officially over (despite the 80 degree weather). But we aren’t letting summer go without a fight! (more…)

New York is always a surprise and it’s almost impossible to predict who you might connect with. AccessoriesTheShow is a melting pot of buyers and is constantly providing new (and old) opportunities.

What do three buildings, 55 floors, hundreds of booths and countless products of every possible kind (including an entire floor dedicated to Christmas decorations) add up to? Some may say it’s the greatest shopping mall on Earth. Others may say a labyrinth that only Pan himself could guide you through, but to most it’s simply the AmericasMart Atlanta Gift Show. (more…)
