My Market Shopping Adventure – New Trends and Sneak Peeks

Going to Market can be one of the most fun and most stressful few days!  It’s a lot a fun to get new trend sneak peeks and look at all the home decor & products but there is also a lot of pressure to make big decisions in a short amount of time. 

I attend Markets twice a year, January and June/July.  That’s it.  That’s the only opportunity I have to look at new items, touch and feel all the things, and set my store up for success for the next 6 months.

This summer I attended the Dallas Market Center – Total Home & Gift Market.  It’s the biggest Market for the summer in Dallas for my product niche.

New Trend Sneak Peeks

First, let's talk about some of the new trends we saw at this Market.

New Trend Sneak Peeks

It's the year of the LEMON!!

Squeeze the day!  We had a lot of fun with watermelons, then it was all about the pineapples….now onto the bright yellow, sour fruit that makes summer F-U-N.  Everywhere I looked, lemons were paired with some type of blue color.  From navy, to royal blue, to baby blue to even turquoise.  Lemons + blue = magic! 

New Trend Sneak Peeks

Plaid, Check, Gingham

Whatever you call in, it’s more popular than EVER!  We saw tons of the classic black/white buffalo check pattern, but also some fun twists to that in different colors.  We saw hunter green, taupe, orange, and of course blues!  No matter what color you are drawn to, it will be everywhere this Fall and Winter.  My fav is still the classic black & white, and I’m trying to figure out where I need that rug!!

New Trend Sneak Peeks

Leopard never dies!!

The Leopard print trend has been going strong for several years.  This year, everywhere we turn we ran into LEOPARD PRINT!  From bold pops of neon, to classic neutral styles, it was EVERYWHERE!  I wanted to share some of our favorite leopard pieces from this show.

We already have some Leopard for you!!

Trend Setter!

We put together our Top 5 NEW products from this Market. 

They will all be available for you SOON!

  1. Swig Coffee Mugs.  The new slim design is perfect for women’s hands.  It’s taller which means the handle is a little higher to help hold it in a cup holder.  This gorgeous new print is called Island Bloom!
  2. Multi Storage Leopard Crossbody Bags.  This style of crossbody has been by far the most popular in the store.  And now, you can get it in 2 new leopard prints!  How exciting!!
  3. Stuffed Pumpkins.  I LOVE all these adorable pumpkins.   The patterns are the cutest and they come in different sizes.
  4. Silicone Key Ring Bracelets.  We can never keep our key ring bracelets in stock and when we saw these NEW silicone ones, it stopped us dead in our tracks!  They have a large bracelet and supper stretchy silicone.
  5. Super Fun Stationery and Pens.  We fell in love with this new line instantly, and know you will too!  From fun notebooks and planners to awesome pens and bags we just LOVE it!!

I love all the new trend sneak peeks and grabbing my favorite things to share with you all! We had a great time at Dallas Market and I am excited to hear what you think of all the new items we picked out and will personalize just for you in future Monogram Boxes! 

A big thank you to everyone that shopped along with me in my FB and insta stories!! I hope you had fun watching me shop and helping me make some crucial decisions.  It sure did take some of the pressure off!!
