Off to NYC market and back!

Fall Market

The energy at market is most amazing. Imagine walking 13 miles in one day to see vendors.

Fall Market

NYC is undoubtedly the fashion mecca in the United States.

It’s hard to believe, but all the gorgeous fall inventory you see in the store now was actually discovered at NYC market in late February; and we will be out again to market this month for Spring 2018!

I love to visit tried-and-true designers at market, but I am always on the lookout for up-and-coming labels.

I love scouting for new and exciting merchandise – as well as the tried and true. I often shop with a specific customer in mind.

Although New York City is the fashion mecca, there is always the chance we will find something that didn’t make it to the Big Apple. Throughout the year, we might add a trip to Chicago, Las Vegas or California to see what our regional reps have to sell.

Regular trips to market in cities like the Big Apple help us set the stage for the fashion scene in Dayton.

Every day, I place orders, take notes, get information and line sheets. Do we see any Broadway shows? No. Honestly, we are completely exhausted at the day’s end. We enjoy a quick dinner and then return to our hotel.

A lot of paperwork comes home with me to Dayton.

And so it begins! After hustling through the NYC shows, a lot of paper work comes home with me to Dayton. I then decide which orders will make the final cut — keeping my wonderful customers always in mind. Stop by today to hear more about our market trips!
