Art Licensing: January 2013 Atlanta Gift Show

The Atlanta Gift Show at the AmericasMart Atlanta is the largest gift show in the U.S. The January 2013 (January 11-16) show did not have the huge buzz of the 2012 show (2012 January Atlanta Gift Market: surge in buyer traffic gives high hope to economic recovery) but wholesalers seem pleased with the traffic and sales. According to Gift & Dec magazine articles (see links below) the show started with okay attendance and "continued to gain momentum as buyers continued to make their way to market on Friday and Saturday."

Gift & Dec magazine reported that fashion is presently one of the most popular categories in the gift industry. Artist Patience Brewster has entered the fashion industry with one-of-a-kind clutch purses. Carver Jim Shore now has a line of jewelry, leather tote bags and compact mirrors under a new brand JS-for Enesco. And, Kelly Rae Roberts has new jewelry and tote bags with Demdaco. Find out more about the products and trends seen at the 2013 January Atlanta Show by reading the following reports.
