Pick Up Sticks New Designs and See You in Dallas!

Pick Up Sticks is on the road again this week, heading to the Dallas Market Center for the Dallas Finds Show from June 21 to 24, 2012.  We’ll be on the 13th Floor in Booth 9001, showing off all our new designs, as well as all the old favorites.

The new designs are all about fun and color and whimsy, and if you’re an exclusive customer of Pick Up Sticks, you can get a 10% discount on your Pick Up Sticks order as long as the order is placed no later than July 11, 2012.

Prefer to do your shopping in the booth in Dallas?  We’re offering the same great deal to our exclusives who come in to the booth to say hello and place their order there.  This offer excludes any show specials, but otherwise it’s a great way to stock up on Pick Up Sticks new designs.

We love our exclusive retailers, and we want you to know it.  Not sure whether you’re an exclusive or not?  Just call the studio to see how close you might be, and then order enough to get you to exclusive status.  We’d love to share this great deal with you!

See you in Dallas.  If we miss you there, we’ll be in Atlanta from July 13 to 17, in Chicago at the Beckman’s Handcrafted Show from July 21 – 24, and in New York at the New York International Gift Fair August 19 – 22.  Get location and booth details here.

See You at AmericasMart, Dallas Market Center and the New York International Gift Fair!


Here's what our designer says our new booth will look like!

Only 17 days until market!  Early in December we packed up Judy and a pile of  jewelry and sent her on her way to the Americas Mart/Merchandise Mart in Atlanta.  We’ll join her there on January 14 – and we can’t wait to see you there as well!

The most exciting market news is that we have a new booth design AND we’re going to be easier to find in Atlanta.  We’re in the same building (3), floor (2), section (Handmade) and row (800), but now we’re on the front of the aisle in the atrium.  Our new booth number in Atlanta is 2-802. 

Come by and say hello and let us know what you think of the booth and our new charm designs.  We enjoy going to market – it gives us a chance to see all our old friends and make new ones.  If you’re a retail customer and want your local retailer to carry Pick Up Sticks, send them a copy of our schedule – we’d love to meet them and introduce them to the line.

Our formal schedule is listed below.  See you there!

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:
