The Atlanta Gift Market is Next Week!

Here's a sneak peek video of new products that are debuting with Demdaco this month!  There are a few glimpses of the new items for "This Thing Called Family" around 1:43!  You can see LOTS more pics of our 2012 products, including our super cute owl nesting dolls, (sooo excited!) in this post.

We are preparing to go to Atlanta next week to see all of these new lovely products in person and hopefully meet some of the talented artists behind these lines!  We'll be hanging out at the International Gift and Home Furnishings Market January 12th and 13th.

This is an event held several times a year, but January's is always the biggest!  Retailers from all over the country come to 'market' to shop wholesale.  They decide what they want to carry in their stores for that season or that year and put in their orders.  All kinds of gift and home decor companies exhibit their products.  There are several buildings and floors + floors of market to see. Demdaco's "showroom" itself is HUGE!  When you consider how many wonderful choices retailers have, it's truly amazing that anyone ever picks our line!  We can't wait to see the displays and the creative staging of our favorite Demdaco collections. We're also excited to see our favorite Demdaco people- the creative team of people who continue to work so hard to develop our line, "This Thing Called Family."  ALSO, we are thrilled by the possibility of meeting and connecting with some of our favorite Demdaco artists!

We'll try to take lots of pictures so we can show you everything when we return.

*If you're a retailer, artist (or just some other random person :-) who is going to the Atlanta market next week, let us know!!!  

*And hey, if you're a pro and go every year, give us newbees some tips! We could use all the help we can get!  :-)
