No matter where you look, there are products that are both on-trend and consumer-friendly. Here are a few ideas to look for while walking the showrooms and temp floors at Market:
General Gift: Language Arts – A picture is worth a thousand words, but words can be as powerful when they’re the primary graphic. A bold letter. A striking phrase. Everyone has a favorite type.
Tabletop/Fine Gift: A Full Palette – An engaging use of lush, saturated colors – eggplant, evergreen, cranberry, navy, ochre – adds intensity to everyday as well as entertaining at home.
Temps – Gift: Sunny Side – From the gold of a blazing sunrise to the delicate lemon of a jonquil to creamy, buttery tones to the saffron shades of a rich chardonnay, the yellow color palette shines light into every corner.
Gift & Resort: Park It – Ranging from souvenirs to apparel to books to maps, park-related products gain exposure as people explore natural destinations, often closer to home.
Gourmet/Housewares: Wine Oh! – Wine consumption in the United States is up 30 percent over last decade with more than 55 percent of us enjoying a glass at least once a week. That makes related accessories a savvy seller as the U.S. ranks second to only France in wine consumption.
Children’s: Gotta Eat! – From bottles and accessories to place settings and silverware to bibs to high chair covers to specialized cookbooks, anything related to getting kid’s to eat is gobbled up by consumers.
