After Anchal's "Best in Market" win in February, we returned to New York for our third trade show at NY NOW in August. Anchal continued to stand out amongst 2.500 brands with our unique designs and model for impact. New quilts, pillow, table linens, scarves, jackets and ponchos were introduced to retailers resulting in record sales. The most popular items were the Triangle Toss Pillow, Cross Stitch Pillow, Triangle Throw, Grid Quilt in Sand, and Ponchos.
In addition, only one year after their first trade show, Colleen & Maggie were invited to be featured seminar speakers at the market. The seminar, titled "Applying Design Thinking to Artisan Products: How to Design Products with Maximum Impact," shared how the Clines sisters use design thinking for creative problem solving and how other artisan businesses can utilize the same principles to create beautiful prouducts with impact.
We look forward to returning for NY NOW's next market in February.
