Americasmart debuts new layout for The Gardens
November 2, 2017,
ATLANTA – It’s a new season for The Gardens at AmericasMart Atlanta and change is in the air. The nation’s largest collection of casual furniture, accessories, holiday and garden gift merchandise takes on a new look for January 2018 with select showrooms relocating and expanding.
The relocated showrooms will open at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market, January 9-16, 2018. They will also be open Mondays through Fridays as part of AmericasMart’s Open Year-Round resources.
“Our new showroom is at least three times larger than our space was on Floor 10,” says Bill Dual, president of In The Breeze. “With this much space we have room to show almost our entire line, and, for sure, all of our best sellers in all categories.” In January, In The Breeze will present its full line of kites and kite accessories, which it has always carried, but previously didn’t have room to show at AmericasMart.
Cohasset Gifts & Garden will show both its wind chimes and molten glass collections in its new space. “Photos never do the wind chimes nor the molten glass sculptures justice, and buyers really need to see them in person to understand why they are important pieces,” explains owner Diane Anderson. “Our displays give the retailers ideas of how to merchandise the product so they can sell it in their stores. The market and the new space let us make a connection with our buyers and work with them on how to grow their businesses.
“The type of buyer we see at AmericasMart runs the gamut. We see Garden Centers and birding stores, plus just as many gift stores that carry products that are perfect for outdoor spaces. We also have buyers who are florists and event planners, and even pet stores who use our molten glass pieces as Beta fish bowls. The Atlanta Market is the number one show. There is no way around it.”
