The past few weeks have been busy ones for our warehouse as the "Classic Elegance" line began shipping to our retail partners.
We have also been busy preparing for the upcoming Create & Connect show (formerly the CHA Summer trade show) in Las Vegas. While Melissa Frances will NOT be exhibiting on the trade show floor, we will be participating in a multi-vendor extravaganza in Vegas on July 22st (the day before the Create & Connect show begins). All of our current customers should have received an invitation via the email we have on file. If you did not receive the invite and are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can get the details sent your way. (While we appreciate our end consumers, this event is for trade/wholesale customers only. Thank you for your understanding.)
We are looking forward to launching a brand new paper line and extensions to our gift ware line at the extravaganza Event. And today is the day when we preview a few of our new items to you!
Our new paper line is called "Fright this Way" and is our very first Halloween collection. The line was designed by Alley Kat Cole, a new imprint at Melissa Frances.
The house ware/gift ware division of Melissa Frances will have a huge new release of products that add to our reproduction vintage product range. Items such as:
Our metal Number stencil sets (seen below) which come as a set of 10 and are 1.25" high, available in white or distressed metal.
Our brand new Trinket 4 tier display (seen below, left) takes its inspiration from an old hardware store dispenser. It is a statement making home decor piece, and quite large at 12" wide and 21" high when fully displayed. When not in use, the display collapses to make storage or travel easy.
We will be adding to our fabric products with some new purses/bags and this new chair cover seen below. Our cloche collection will also get a large infusion of new products with several new styles, such as the ones seen below.
The last preview that we want to share with you is for our brand new Ribbon Dispenser. Made of metal and glass, with 10 - 1.25” wide compartments, our ribbon cabinet would make a lovely display in a home studio, shop or gift wrapping station.
These are just a small sampling of the items which will be launching this summer.
We encourage you to let your local store know that you have seen our sneak peeks and if you're interested in any items specifically, so that they are sure to bring them in for you.
