Spring is in the Air
With the vaccine rolling out and protective measures working we can see a new day on the horizon. In four weeks spring will arrive and I am confident that so will increased demand for clothing and accessories. January retail sales were strong in both month over month and year over year according to National Retail Federation. The stimulus checks had a positive effect in January and it looks like we will have another round of stimulus checks in March.
Now is the time to get ready for an improved spring selling season. Wayne Gretzky said he scored so many goals because he skated to where the puck will be, not where it is – we need to get ready for the spring.
This spring will make special days even more important as we start to come out of restrictions in place for Covid. Mother’s Day will be an occasion where many families can be together again, graduations will mark the passing of a major milestone for many and Easter will be a time of greater joy than last year. While we will not be all the way back, we are on the way.
People emerging from the cocoons of sheltering in place will want to add to their wardrobes and jewelry boxes to get a new fresh look. Jewelry is one of the accessories that can dress up a simple outfit and accent a stylish one. The variety of jewelry we have is sure to please almost every taste. Our ever popular silver plate jewelry has great new styles and wonderful prices points. Our beautiful water buffalo horn evokes the mystery of the East and style of Paris in affordable offerings. We also have stunning bronze pieces, delicate hand crocheted pieces and creative recycled wood pieces. Check them out and then check out with some that will be best for your store.
