Atlanta Gift Show was productive on all fronts. Buyers were there buying although the numbers seemed down. A few people I've spoken to may disagree disagree. They thought it was packed. Wondering if, with four buildings now, they travel in packs and certain areas get lots of traffic at once while others are sparse. I left Saturday so missed the majority of local traffic focused on the temps. Some great product and art based licensing seems to be on the rebound from the color and geometrics that have dominated for the past several years. With the election year behind us, regardless of anyones politics, business needs to get back on track.
