Hi there!  Well, the Atlanta Market for the summer is winding up, and I have been getting the updates through newsletters.  If you have never been to a wholesale market, Atlanta is an experience beyond belief!  A vertical shopping paradise awaits buyers from all the over the world, and if you have it in your closet, on your floor, on your walls, or decorating your home, the chances are that it has come to you by way of a trade show.

Here are a couple of links to some newsy tidbits about this summer’s festivities – and there are festivities! The Direct from Market: Atlanta and Market Report letters will give you a taste of what has been going on, what the offerings were, and what you can expect to see the second half of the year and next spring.  Yes, next spring, because spring lines are usually sampled this time of year!  It gives manufacturers time to get production underway so that shipping can take place in January.  MBAers tell us that we have a consumer-driven economy, and after visiting Atlanta, you can believe it!
