MARKET TRENDS: Spring / Summer 2016

After a busy month of traveling to Kalalou showrooms in Atlanta, Dallas, and Las Vegas, our team likes to take some time to study market sales numbers. We're always striving to better cater to our customers, and looking at what was successful in the showrooms can reveal trends that help guide us when selecting the next big thing for Kalalou. Here are a few of our observations after looking over our top sellers from the three shows...

With our Oyster Shells, Military Canisters, and Bam Jam at the top of every "best-seller" list, it seems that natural and recycled products reign supreme for Spring/Summer 2016! Our new line of Oyster shell products was a huge hit. Customers love the unique look these nautical accessories provide, so definitely look forward to new variations on that line in the coming year. Our best-selling line of Recycled Military canisters are still ever-popular and the new smaller-sized bucket is quickly becoming a new Kalalou favorite. "Gifty" items always do well with our customer and this market season has shown that our Ceramic Gold Brick Bank and Bam Jam are still at the top of everyone's Kalalou gift list. Lastly, our cast iron wall hooks continue to be huge sellers, with our new Flying Bird and Cactus designs being the most successful (we just can't get enough cactus designs!).

Hopefully this list gives you a little insight into our process and serves as an indicator for where home accessory trends are moving in 2016. Contact your sales rep for a more extensive Market Top Sellers list.

Thanks to everyone who helped make our Atlanta, Dallas, and Vegas shows such a success. See you in High Point!

Spring/Summer 2016 Market Wrap Up

That's a wrap on our Spring/Summer 2016 market season! What a crazy three weeks it has been. After traveling to Atlanta then Dallas and finally Las Vegas, we are in awe of the customer response to our new collection. It was a blast kicking everything off in Atlanta with our 30th Birthday party and we'd like to say a special thanks to everyone who came by to celebrate with us. It was a heck of a party! As always, traveling to Dallas and Las Vegas is a special treat. We love the opportunity to meet our western and centrally located customers to get a better feel for how they use the Kalalou line. After a month of travel, it's so nice to be back home, but not for long! We're already gearing up for High Point Market (April 16-20). So if you haven't made it out to any of our showrooms this year, there's still one more chance to see the SS2016 line and meet the Kalalou crew! Thanks again for your continued support and here's to 30 more years!

Stay tuned to the Kalalou blog for our breakdown of best sellers from SS2016 market...

Thanks Atlanta!

 

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Kalalou showroom at AmericasMart in downtown Atlanta! The ATL show always has a fantastic turn out and this year was no different. We had a blast catching up with long time customers as well as meeting new ones. Unveiling our new Botanica creation is always an exciting part of our Atlanta Market experience and we were thrilled to hear your amazing feedback on this year's "Botanimal!" Nicknamed "Ella Phantzgerald," our Kalalou mascot was a roaring success! If you joined us in Atlanta, we hope you were inspired and excited for the upcoming Holiday shopping season!
