To Market, To Market, To Market We Go…

Dallas Market Center Showroom

It’s market time again – time for retailers everywhere to try and guess what our customers will want 10 months from now! Yes, your friendly retailer is actually a psychic with a price gun!! We spend our days trolling floor after floor touching, smelling, tasting all kinds of goodies with our customers in mind. “Will they find this interesting,” “Is this the right price,” “Does this fit in my store,” the questions, not to mention the miles and miles of walking, tend to make us all a bit cranky by week’s end. But, we also get to find that one item we know will make a customer go “wow”!

So, what did I see this week? Fabulous painted furniture, some of which will soon be moving to The Silver Barn. Nora Fleming tableware with her fabulous accessories. Tooth fairy pillows for those valuable cash trading teeth. Fabulous new soy-beeswax candles filling vintage-looking milk bottles in yummy scents and fabulous new dog bowls that will be hand painted to my specifications….”I bark for Aggies,” “I bark for Frogs” should give you a hint of what is to come. Oh, and get ready to celebrate the 75 anniversary of Peter Rabbit with us.

2011 looks to be another great year for Silver Barn with loads of more fun and excitement coming in every box. Get ready UPS and FedEx! We look forward to seeing all of our customers/friends soon.
