Items tagged “Juvenile Stores”

The ABC Spring Educational Conference will be held “Where Dreams Come True” at Disney World Resorts on May 20-22. The ABC annual spring event allows juvenile stores, manufacturers, reps and media to get to know more about each other and their industry. The juvenile industry has been built on dreams, and continues to serve and be inspired by families with new dreams. That’s why I asked several exhibitors these questions: “What are your dreams that have come true, or that you still have?” and “What dream product are you showing at the ABC spring trade show?” I received replies from Duux, MD Moms, Reflo, pello, and oogaa.

KidShow - Las Vegas, Nevada (2/17/14 - 2/19/14)

Last February’s KIDShow Las Vegas showed me a lot to love. The event continues to be the largest collection of children’s fashions and accessories west of the Hudson River, and offers a wide assortment of mid-tier to high-end apparel in a comfortable setting where buyers can review lines and write orders to assure well-stocked shelves and strong sales. Here are some of the brands and people that caught my eye and renewed my interest in the children’s business: We The Beautiful, Jo Ann Farese and all the brands she represents, GlitterTots Sparkle Screen and Ultimate Apparel, well represented by Karen Grasso.

Baby Bella Maya’s new and innovative 5 in 1 Diaper Tote Bag is a stylishly functional way to store all of your baby’s essentials and so much more! With the use of an ingenious flap and hidden zipper, the carry-all bag miraculously transforms into a multi-purpose cover that keeps your little one comfortable, safe and clean in shopping carts, restaurant high chairs and hot park swings. Just when you think the bag can’t do anymore just zip it back up and make it a nursing cover for on the go!

♦ Includes a multi-purpose mesh bag to carry toys, moms belongings, blankets and more

When checking out lines for your shop, do you ever wish many items could be found in one showroom for your buying convenience? Now, at the Summer Place Showroom at the AmericasMart, Atlanta, the existing space has been doubled, offering twice the space for display. Buyers can view and select everything from layette and accessory items to toddler and tween apparel, shoes and gifts in one spacious showroom that gives growing lines more opportunity to display their complete offerings, as well as space to introduce new brands.

Attending a panel discussion presented about how retailers can better work with bloggers and social media outlets, I remembered Marshall McLuhan’s famous quote from my college days: “The medium is the message.” He meant something about the medium influencing, and thus becoming part of, how the message is perceived. It kinda confused me then, just as I realized after the Q&A session that there is a lot of confusion about the ever-changing online media called “social.” Some retailers remained puzzled as to why anyone would be interested in what moms say about their families. One reason they should care is because many of these messages are influencing buying decisions and helping to build brands.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve already seen this quote, “The customer doesn’t care.” I wish I could take credit for having uttered this phrase but alas it was actually Gary Wassner of the factoring firm Hilldun who made this proclamation at an event I attended recently. Out of all the insightful things he said, this was the one that really jumped out at me because it’s true: The customer really doesn’t care.
