Pick Up Sticks Summer 2010 Market Season – Come to see us!


Sabrina, Jalaina, Candace, Glena and Bunny - Atlanta - Winter Market Season 2010

Every six months we get to do what we love best – we go to market!  We pack suitcases full of boots (Winter season) or flip-flops (Summer season) and we head off to our favorite cities for a week at a time.  This year we’re going to Dallas, Atlanta and New York, where we’ll get to see old friends, make new ones, eat great food, AND show off Pick Up Sticks’ new designs.

Judy goes with us, of course, and in addition to the full days spent in our booth selling jewelry, there’s plenty of fun to be had outside the booth.  There’s always the rush to greet all our old aisle mates, pick our new Glenda Gies bag for the season, have dinner at Two Urban Licks in Atlanta, make a run to the Hobo booth, shop with all the other frenzied shoppers in cash and carry, take in a a Broadway show in New York, (we saw Hair in January), and hopefully squeeze in a concert or two (remember Kool & the Gang at the Americas Mart?  Lenny Kravitz and Aerosmith?  Kenny Chesney?).    

But the absolute best part of going to market is getting to visit with Pick Up Sticks wholesale customers.  Whether you’ve been with us since the days of the soldered charms or you’re brand new, we truly enjoy meeting you (again) and hearing what you have to say about the line.  You tell us what you like, what doesn’t work, what you’re like to see next season, and how your customers are responding.  There’s nothing like that sort of information to make our jobs easier, which should then make your job as a retailer of Pick Up Sticks easier.    

Here’s our market schedule for Summer 2010.  If you’re going to be at any of these markets, let us know ahead of time so we can watch for you.  We’d love to see you there.  And if you have great ideas for something fun to do or an amazing restaurant in your market city, let us know!

We’ll be at:

FINDS, Dallas Market Center – Booth 9404, 13th Floor, June 25 – 28, 2010

Atlanta International Gift Market, Americas Mart/Merchandise Mart, Booth #2-815, Handmade, July 16 – 20, 2010
