“The show looks really nice.”
Margaret Mobius, co-founder of HUDSON’S and our intrepid trade show attendee, says this morning brought strong attendance once again to KIDShow at Las Vegas’ Bally’s Hotel. “One of the new happenings that KIDShow organized is the afternoon pick-me-up,” she says. “The great snacks like ice cream, caramel corn, pretzels with mustard – plus coffee, tea and more – really help to pick up the afternoon.”
As buyers stop by the HUDSON’S live photo shoot to enjoy the goings on, Margaret dishes on more companies making a splash this year:
Special News Flash: “Groupe BDM is making a major announcement about their new, top secret product this October,” Margaret says, “and we’re really looking forward to that!” The Canadian corporation specializes in developing mobile sales order and e-commerce solutions for the apparel industry – especially in the children’s wear market. Vancouver, WA-based Knuckleheads, Inc. is so excited about this, the company is already signed up. Stay tuned …
Another company that caught Margaret’s eye Kidcando, launching at KIDShow. “Husband and wife team Alan and Suzie Keller just wanted to put a good message on a good quality, affordable product,” Margaret says. “Their son helped to come up with the idea of this positive t-shirt line.” The Montclair, NJ-based company makes casual children’s clothing sizes infant through size 14 for boys and girls, including Peruvian made short and long t-shirts, hoodies, track jackets, rompers and hoodie dress. The company plans to donate a percentage of sales to people in need, too.
It’s always nice for us to see good friends Robert and Donna Prescott and to find out what they’re up to. Their new marketing campaign for Young Colors … “Real Kids – Real Colorado” … spotlights hometown kids with hometown styles. Margaret says, “Kids from Robert and Donna’s own neighborhood in Salida, CO are modeling the clothes.” How fun is that?
“I think Moo Boo’s has the most elegant booth here,” she says. “Their beautiful space has a lot of punch to it and really shows off their new line.”
OK – Margaret’s off to Kids at MAGIC Marketplace!
