In partnership with Dallas Market Center, the American Made Show marks its second year in showcasing the best of handcrafted new work by American studio artisans during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market. Better yet, its return engagement, on June 23-26, takes place in newly expanded space on the World Trade Center building’s twelfth floor.
“We are thrilled to be front and center at the Dallas summer market,” said Wendy Rosen, president of the American Made Show. “Retailers are craving authentic American-made products and we are able to connect them not only with some of the country’s most talented artists but also with quality products they can’t find anywhere else.”
“Connecting buyers to quality products with a story is a priority for us,” added Cindy Morris, president & CEO of Dallas Market Center. “Right now, handcrafted, one-of-a-kind items are exceptionally important to buyers, and the American Made Show not only provides them with exciting new and unique merchandise, it also gives buyers an opportunity to diversify their product offerings.”
The move to the twelfth floor allows buyers to shop the American Made Show in a more cohesive and efficient manner. As cross-over merchandising continues to expand and buyers from all categories look to mix their assortments with handcrafted items, Dallas Market Center emphasized it will continue to remain committed to the diversity that the American Made Show provides.
The American Made Show is the nation’s premier wholesale market for designer products handcrafted by studio artists from the United States and Canada. Catering to retailers who appreciate the value and distinct quality of handcrafted artist-made products, the Dallas edition is being curated especially for show attendees in the Central and Southwest regions who support the growing Shop Local consumer movement.
