Dallas to showcase unique product

Dallas Market Center will present the largest collection of unique and artisanal product during its upcoming Total Home & Gift Market

Dallas Market Center will offer more than 200,000 square feet of the most dynamic and one-of-a-kind product only available during its Total Home & Gift Market, June 24-30.

During the show, the Marketplacewill host three major groups whose mission is to create unique product for retailers. The groups include: the American Made Show, International Folk Art Market | Collection and the Round Top Experience.

On the World Trade Center 13th floor, Dallas Market Center will welcome artists from the American Made Show, the premier wholesale show for designer products handcrafted solely in the U.S. and Canada. Buyers will be met with unique jewelry, home décor, fine gifts, fashion accessories, home and garden products, furniture, gourmet items, paper goods and sustainably manufactured merchandise created by studio artists, with every piece of material manufactured in North America.

The partnership will meet buyer demand for quality, American-made products nurtured by the nationwide consumer support of locally and responsibly produced items. In the World Trade Center atrium, a separate group of artisans from nearly 20 countries will showcase handmade artworks reflective of their traditional cultures during the International Folk Art Market | Collection.

Artists will showcase embroidered textiles, basketry, ceramics, beaded jewelry, painted wood objects, tie-dye scarves, hand-woven silks and clothing native to their homelands. Countries represented include Colombia, Indonesia, Italy, Peru, Uganda, and more.

The unique cultural exchange allows the opportunityfor retailers to purchase products that help build and sustain local communities around the world, and provides year-round income by fulfilling wholesale orders long after the conclusion of Market.

This is the fifth year the Collection has been presented during summer Market before showcasing in Santa Fe, and is one of the most celebrated events.
In Market Hall, Dallas Market Center continues to showcase the largest vintage collection of any market this summer featuring antiques, painted and hand-carved furniture, weathered décor, tableware, textiles, fashion accessories, gifts and more one-of-a-kind product. The origin of this
collection is the charming town of Round Top, which hosts one of the world’s largest antique and vintage fairs twice a year. Since 2010, the
marketplace has produced “Round Top in Dallas” with more than 100 vintage wholesalers every January and June.“

As retailers continue to differentiate themselves through product, as well as increase merchandising mix and sales, we are proud to offer these
three distinct groups in addition to our thousands of existing artisan and American-made lines,” said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. “We invite
our buyers to join us on the adventure of discovery this June and look forward to welcoming our new and loyal buyers to Market.”
