New Open Showroom Policy

americasmartbuilding2falldesignshowThe Link Companies, in the spirit of true Southern hospitality, is now offering an “open showroom policy” for a more productive and comfortable shopping experience. This means that our Atlanta Gift Mart showrooms (located in Building 2 at AmericasMart) are open to all sales representatives from across the country so they can work with their customers while attending the two major markets in Atlanta. We have partnered with our vendors to ensure that our valued retailer partners can feel comfortable working with their local sales representatives, even if they are from outside The Link Companies’ territories.

According to Brad Rosenkampff, CPO and Managing Partner, “With so many regional markets disappearing and the traffic shifting to the AmericasMart campus, we have chosen to open our showrooms to ensure the best shopping experience while attending the markets in Atlanta. It is a sincere effort to create a more relaxing and pleasurable environment for all.” We are confident that our teamwork with vendors and out-of-territory sales representatives will make The Southern Link and Link 2 Sales showrooms even more enticing during the gift shows. It’s truly a privilege to serve so many great retailers across North America and beyond.”

Fall Jewelry Trends 2016

jewelrytrendscollagefinal2


Fall jewelry trends this year are varied —so eclectic. There’s something for everyone! Here, we’re going to focus on the top four jewelry trends seen on fashion sites and right in our showrooms at AmericasMart. At the top of our trend list this fall are chokers, tassels, layered necklaces and bracelets, and cuff bracelets. There are so many ways to wear these pieces. Let’s take a look.

Chokers. The 90’s choker look is back in almost every style and material imaginable. But, an especially popular version of the choker has a twist. You’ll often hear them referred to as scarf chokers because they are wrapped around the neck and hang loose at the ends. They are making appearances in ribbon, leather and chain. See our catalogs for Nakamol Chicago and Coco+Carmen to look at more versions of these stunning necklaces. The choker/collar also made a big showing at Fall Fashion Week. Anju has some amazing mixed metal  collars for fall.

Layers and stacks. Layered sets of necklaces and bracelets are popular this fall. We are seeing sets of delicate chained necklaces and also an eclectic mix of elements and metals to create the look. They are being sold in sets; some are connected, but others are not. This gives the customer so many options to create different looks. Bracelets are seen in stacks and wraps. Call them arm candy. Or, call them arm parties. It’s a great look. Coco + Carmen and Endless Jewelry both have wrapped and stacked bracelets.

Tassels.Tassels are big on both handbags and jewelry this fall. They are showing up in leather, cloth, plastic and metal. You’ll see them in all sizes and colors and even hanging from the scarf chokers that we mentioned above. It’s the year of the tassel, so it seems!

Cuff bracelets. Cuff bracelets of all widths are being worn over sleeves and gloves. Mixed metal cuffs are popular as are open cuff bangles with earthy stones on each end. Even wearing multiple cuff bracelets is quite on trend. Anju has so many designs to choose from in metals and also in leather.
