New products?! January 2016 is here and that means we’ve got a handful of new products launching at AmericasMart’s Gift & Home Market this coming week, January 12-19. I’m so excited to share that The Rep Connection Showroom has picked up our line of southern-inspired products. If you’re a retailer or will be visiting market next week, please come by the showroom, building 2, suite 1407. I would love to meet you and show you in-person all our new collections.
This Winter 2016, we’ll be launching a new line of All Occasion Greeting Cards. This time, I decided to go in the hand-illustration direction rather than using my photography. It’s always a challenge each year to create a line that is fresh and new but is still cohesive with your brand. I’m pleased with how the new designs turned out and hope you guys are too. These new cards are folded, not flat like our previous collections. They are printed on our signature cream speckled-tone stock and paired with a corresponding kraft envelope.
I expanded our inventory of bridal/wedding cards…
… and created a few others for all those special moments …
… and ehhh, not so special moments.
In late 2015 I introduced a few new towel designs at my local holiday shows and they were a huge hit. So now I’m offering them wholesale. The response to these towels have been overwhelming. I feel like a broken record, but these towels are THE best quality around, I promise! They are 100% cotton, super absorbent, SUPER SOFT and they wash-up so well.
For all you Tennessee folks, this one has been a huge seller. I’ve sold out twice.
The one product this season that I am most thrilled to launch are our new down filled linen pillows. I have been wanting to do pillows for quite some time and have worked hard these past 8 months to find the best quality material around. These pillows are 100% linen, 16”x16”, have a beautiful linen welt finish around the edge and are down-filled!
You can PRE-ORDER these beauties today HERE!
Best of all, these pillows are hand screen printed right here in Nashville, Tennessee by the great guys at Grand Palace Silkscreen. I had the opportunity this past year to work with Drew and his crew for the printing of our kitchen towels, flour sack recipe cards bags, Christmas kraft bags and now our pillows.
Not only are you supporting Southern Fried when you purchase one of our pillows, but you’re also supporting these talented folks at Grand Palace. I’m just so happy I was able to keep everything as local to Nashville as possible.
All our other new products will be ready to purchase here on the website at the end of January or be available in your local shop that carries our line. Look HERE for a list of stores new you.
Retailers, if you would like a copy of our new 2016 wholesale catalog, click HERE, fill-in your information and you’ll receive our password to log-in.
So far, 2016 has already shown lots of change for me personally and with Southern Fried. I pray each of you has a year full of success, growth and fun. Follow along on my market adventure this week and next week on my instagram, @southernfriedtn.
Cheers to a Happy New Year!
