Color My Garden Bright

We just arrived back from a fantastic Atlanta Gift show where we met with so many of our retailers. Everyone was upbeat and optimistic about the outlook for 2012. There was a buzz in the air and buyers are ready to freshen up and brighten up their merchandise going into Spring. Our "Color My Garden" collection was well received - the perfect yard decor and gift collection for the the "yard artist". Lively, bright and colorful - this collection was popular and deemed on trend for the coming season. This collection is available to view at our our showrooms in Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, Chicago and Minneapolis or you can order at http://www.mwcbk.com/

It's the 2012 Winter Market Season!

We've worked for over 12 months on our new 2012 collections and the time to show them off to our fabulous retail partners is finally here! We can't be more excited. Our showrooms are bustling and full of activity and over the weekend we'll put the finishing touches on every tree, display, wall and shelf. Some of the hottest trends this year are artfully interpreted in our collections - from traditional nostalgic to vintage french and ombre - we've taken style and design trends hot off the runways and right out of high in interior design houses and translated them for the holiday, gift and garden markets. Colors like trendy fashion colors of oranges, pinks and yellows to warm metallics like ultra-hot copper, bronze and champagne gold to super trendy cobalt and azure blue. We look forward to hosting our retailers as they gear up for a successful and profitable 2012!  Clink this link to see the new collection now!
