Reporting from Atlanta … America’s Mart, Day Two

AmericasMart, Atlanta – Day 2

We completed work in the Radko showroom today. That’s one down! I’m still working on those photos so you’ll have to be patient. As I mentioned previously, this year’s line is much more focused and shows a restrained hand with fewer colors, less glitter and  less “doo-dads”. I was impressed! Good job, Heather and Radko staffers!

Hey, Atlanta has SNOW! I have never experienced it here. Being from Ohio, I’d call this a very light dusting … but it seems there is the dreaded black ice beneath. Plus, these Georgians just aren’t equipped for the white winter stuff. So, schools are closing already for tomorrow.

Here are some photos of new introductions from several showrooms. Let’s play the “Whose is it” game again. Please use the comment form beneath this post to make your guesses. But, if you can’t find the “comment” link, feel free to send me your guesses using the CONTACT tab at the top of this page.

Finial Debut
Fabulous European glass finials mix 21st century contemporary with Old World tradition. All will retail for under $100.

Which designer debuted these beauties?

Reporting from Atlanta … America’s Mart

I’ll be in Atlanta during the huge wholesale market this week and next. This is the spot where many ornament manufacturers debut their new collections each year. Today, I made quick stops at most of the permanent European glass showrooms. Tomorrow, I will begin note-taking and photographing styles to feature in the spring issue of Celebrate365.

Here are a few quick pics from today’s initial exploration.

Can you guess which showrooms I found these in? Use the comment box below to submit your guesses! I’ll enter your name into a drawing for prizes from things that I collect during the show.

Tomorrow, I’ll talk about the pieces shown below.

David Stand is offering Celebrate365 readers an opportunity to participate in his 2010 collection. This special dated ornament needs a catchy name.Here is a look at the first clay sculpt of a new 2010 ornament. You are seeing a pair of snowmen on an old-fashioned railroad handcar. Here are the details of the decorative elements for this ornament.

Holly leaves and berries in the center of the hat band

Classic snowman coloration with white, black, red and a bit of green

Micro-glitter and lacquer paint

Put on your thinking caps! These little guys need a catchy name that reflects their character and setting.


David Strand has selected two winners in the Name That Ornament contest.

Mary Beth H.
Right on Track for 2010

Mary Helen E.

Staying on Track in 2010

Strand has adapted these suggestions and will be using the name ON TRACK FOR 2010.

Both collectors will receive an ornament with David’s compliments.
