Housewares Show Opens
March 10, 2012,
CHICAGO-The International Home + Housewares Show opens at McCormick Place here at 12:30 Saturday.
The show has been extended by a half day this year, and vendors and retailers alike are primed for an earlier start. Expect to see a continuation of some of the leading trends: lots of color, more sustainable and eco-friendly materials (especially bamboo), lots of water bottles and other portable food containers, tools for making and serving miniature sweet treats, tea and coffee-related accessories, and, of course, plenty of licensed chef collections.
