The OVERHERE showroom is finished...for now

There are still many things to do...add racks...find a couple more apparel lines...

Here is the showroom window. 
I love the vintage mannequins for Knuckleheads!

Oh...we decided to change the name of the showroom...the old name was also the name of a brand...
that I don't rep!

...and from the back of the room...the rack between the two tables is to hang clothes on as store owners put together outfits and decide what they want to order.

That whole wall on the right is all Baby Legs, then Diaper Dude (cool diaper bags for's time has come), then Hip Babies pearl jewelry, Mini Maniacs Bibs, Me in Mind and on the back wall is Pink Axle, then Ma Petite Amie, Scout Hula Mula and Knuckleheads

I love the Eames Eifel  sp?...tower chairs at the in orders...  tables

Showroom - In process

The showroom is finished and we had our ribbon cutting and first show.  
We never took pictures of how it all looked when it was done. Will do that tomorrow.

Fresh grey walls and a lot of decision making and nail biting!

I had samples and information on several new lines all coming in at the same time, and I would still have to memorize it all.

Those scissors were real! and very sharp

Ribbon cutting - (what a cheezy grin!)

We have room for another full apparel line. You know what's fun? Looking around the kids fashion world and going after lines that you like and want to rep.

The Beginning...

Well here it is...It was the Baby Lulu showroom and now it will be Little Threads Showroom.

 Just a bunch of nothing right now. 

But the location is GREAT! It's right by the the busy aisle!

Opening up a Showroom!

Now for something a little different.  I am opening up a children's wear showroom in the Atlanta mart (a huge combination of connected buildings in downtown Atlanta that I affectionately call "the great and spacious building" I'm fairly certain that it is the largest merchandise mart in the world. The building that my showroom is in (see photo)  has about 15 floors, a huge interior atrium and houses women's and children's wear, jewelry, purses and everything else a woman could possibly drool over. There are  samples, fabulous jewelry, and purses all at wholesale prices - if you can get it - which ain't easy!

There are plenty of blogs about design for the home, fashion, organizing, and saving money (all topics I love) but none that I have ever seen on an inside look at the kids clothing industry, with its trends, insider tips and hot topics.

So, here I go for awhile..... Come along with me and my new direction and new life as a kids clothing rep as I set up a showroom and see all kinds of fun things happening.....warning: THERE WILL BE GIVE-A-WAYS, donated to me by my generous brands, to give out to YOU from time to time.
