Atlanta’s America’s Mart connects retailers with top gift, home, rug and apparel brands from around the world. If you own a retail store, it is a must-see destination. If you are a producer/wholesaler, this event opens the door to stores who may be interested in carrying your product. It is major national exposure.
We were blessed with the opportunity to be first time attendees this year. America’s Mart occurs several times during the year, with the largest event being in January. From January 12 to the 16th, we manned our booth in downtown Atlanta at the America’s Mart 3 building campus. The goats were left in the capable hands of family while we extolled the virtue of their milk to potential stores and gift shops. The move-in /move-out experience in a downtown Atlanta skyscraper was unlike anything we had experienced before. We survived and are happy to be back to the farm at ground level.
We were pleased to come away with several new accounts:
Sisters Collectible Designs – Trenton, South Carolina
Annabelle’s Southern Boutique – Birmingham, Alabama
The Window Shop (Northeast Georgia Medical Center) Braselton, Georgia
Vagabond Imports – Appleton, Wisconsin
All For You – Greenwood, South Carolina
Sassafras Shop – Nashville, Tennessee
The Cabin Corner – Danbury, Wisconsin
Esposito Nursery – Tallahassee, Florida
Over the next few weeks, we will tell you a little more about each of these stores as they provide stories and detail on their locations for us to share with you.
