Hello, everyone! It’s been a busy week for yours truly, as I’ve been traveling to trade shows around town in pursuit of the perfect pieces for Off Broadway Boutique. Among the shows that I attended were the ENK show at Pier 94, the Atelier show at the Doubletree Hotel, and the Accessories, Moda, and Fame shows at the Jacob Javits Center. Each and every show offers me the promise of finding that special piece that will become a beloved must-have in my shop.
A big winner at Pier 94’s trade shows was the statement jewelry that caught my eye and captured my heart. Since I am always on the lookout for stunning and unique statement jewelry pieces, I was thrilled to find a new collection of gold tone played jewelry. Each piece was simple in design and beautiful in quality, while the collars and breastplates were the centerpieces of the collection. In addition, the Atelier show at the Doubletree Hotel hosted a great trade show from a firm named Dressed to Kill, which offered a few wonderful and special pieces that I will definitely sell in my store. A bonus was the free bags of jellybeans that they were offering around the trade shows.
When I arrived at the Jacob Javits Center trade shows, I immediately fell for a glamorous glass bead jewelry collection that included stunning neckpieces. So smitten was I with the gorgeous green and beautiful blue colors that I had earrings custom made from beads and stones that I handpicked, even though I normally shy away from buying matching jewelry. Since exquisite earrings were already on my mind, I made it a point to search for clip back earrings that were as bold as they were luxurious. After all, I pride myself in offering an array of one of a kind clip back earrings that fashionable women over 50 can embrace at Off Broadway Boutique. The pieces that I found at the Jacob Javits trade shows were beautiful ones that will certainly win the hearts of my customers.
I was also inspired to buy sexy shoes for my customers to wear along with the evening clothes that they try on in the dressing rooms of my shop. Although we haven’t done this in years, I thought it was a great idea to start it back up again so that women can truly see how sexy their legs look in a gown and gorgeous shoes. I chose these shoes in complementary colors – gold, black, and silver – so that they can get the full picture of how glamorous they can look in exquisite style. If this turns out to be a success, I may decide to offer these shoes for purchase in the future.
Although the May trade shows are usually quiet, I still step out to see all the fabulous fashion and glamorous jewelry that there is to offer. Since I never know what treasures I’ll find, I attend every trade show with the anticipation that that I will find that one of a kind piece that will be right at home at my shop. Visit Off Broadway Boutiqueto see our diverse collection of clothes, accessories, and jewelry for women over 50 and you will see just why I am so thrilled to attend trade shows all the time!
