    Just curious to see if any of you have ever attended the Atlanta Market in October? I was told by a couple of vendors that some of the companies sell their products out of their showrooms to start setting up the new showrooms for the January market.

    Also, could you share your favorite place that you purchase your Christmas products from.

    Thanks,

    I have attended the October Market only once because it was so disappointing.  What the showrooms sell for cash and carry are the floor samples.  You have to check them carefully to be sure it's not soiled or missing parts, and is in resellable condition.  I saw people with carts full of stuff, but I didn't think it was worth the effort.

    Raz and A&B Floral (Americasmart Building 1) are great places for Christmas decorations.  During the July Market, I found a line called David Christopher from Smith Wholesale Floral.  I loved their stuff!  They were in the temps and also in the Rep Connection showroom.  They are also online at www.smithwholesalefloral.com.
