The American Made Show Joins Dallas Gift Market

DallasMarketCenter...ofItAllDALLAS-The American Made Show, a wholesale market for handcrafted products from American and Canadian artists, will debut in Dallas as part of the Total Home & Gift Market next summer, under a new partnership between Dallas Market Center and the producers of the American Made Show.

The American Made Show to be held in Dallas is in addition to the show's January 16-19, 2015 market in Washington, D.C.

"Welcoming the American Made Show to Dallas will offer our buyers the largest collection of quality, American-made merchandise in the southern U.S.," said Bill Winsor, president and CEO, Dallas Market Center. "As champions of unique product and small business, the partnership is a perfect fit and we look forward to more than 200 independent designers joining us for Market in June 2015."

"Retailers on Main Street, in museum shops and even in our National Park stores are under increasing pressure from their customers to carry more American-made products," said Wendy Rosen, president and founder, American Made Show. "It's our job to provide an authentic alternative to the look-alike imports that are often presented as authentic American handcrafts. We're pleased to offer hundreds of lines to Dallas buyers and allow our designers to access a new customer base."

Show management from each respective organization will continue to be responsible for exhibit sales and buyer pre-registration. Exhibit space will be initially offered by invitation later this summer to current exhibitors of the American Made Show's January Market in Washington, D.C.
