Easter is right around the corner on Sunday, April 21st this year! This holiday is the absolute perfect excuse to prepare your store for spring. This means out with the winter blues, and in with the springtime hues – pastels, Pantone’s color of the year, CORAL, and all modes of floral and plants! Your customers need to see displays that put them in the mindset for upcoming warm temperatures and outdoor events. Do not be shy with color, and front load any candy, Easter basket fillers, and inspirational products.
Thomas Nelson is the Christian publisher we represent at The Southern Link, and they have so many inspirational books for Easter that it’s hard to just name a few! Their best-selling books from the past few months include an excellent choice for an Easter gift: “365 Devotions to Embrace What Matters Most” by John Michalak. This book is designed to call the reader back to the relationships and activities that bring them the most joy, and to step away from the kind of daily drudgery that clouds our vision. With a beautiful, springtime floral cover, this handsome little devotional is perfect for your store’s Easter display!

Southern Sisters was a brand new vendor at The Southern Link during the last gift show in January. It’s easy to see why we chose to rep this line! They create gorgeous, hand-designed flour sack towels and cottage pillows with artwork for all. Some of the designs are funny (there’s a whole collection of black and white drawings of sassy ladies saying things like, “I heard you, I’m just not listening”) and others are simply beautiful artwork for all seasons and occasions. They have a complete Easter collection rife with bunny rabbits, baskets, wreaths, and eggs that will display amazingly in your store and your customer’s household! One of our favorites is shown to the left.
