Dallas Market Center has announced that the FINDS Dallas Temp Show, to be held Jan. 20-23, 2012, will offer more new resources for buyers including vintage and Made in the USA products.
FINDS has experienced a 30% increase in growth over the past five years. The show will take place during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, Jan. 18-24.
Nearly 500,000 square feet of new products are presented in FINDS in the following categories: Bath & Body, Cash & Carry, Christmas & Floral, Collegiate & Souvenir, Design, Fashion, Furniture, Garden & Outdoor, Gift, Handmade & Vintage, Home & Hill Country, Kids, Paper & Party, Red Haute and Vintage Home (a new category).
"Our team continues to deliver new relevant categories and fresh products throughout FINDS," said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. "Handmade and vintage continues to grow and will be seen throughout the temporaries, and the exciting addition of the Made in the USA designation will serve buyers well."
New for the January show is the Made in the USA designation. Exhibitors offering products made domestically will be identified by a bold logo on their booth signs. This allows for the Made in the USA products to be easily recognized throughout the temporaries.
Handmade & Vintage FINDS debuted this past June and has since doubled in size. It will be located on the World Trade Center (WTC) 13th floor and will present gift and fashion accessories. Additionally, Vintage Home FINDS will launch as a new category in Market Hall (North Hall). The category will feature antique and vintage-type items and will share the North Hall with Furniture FINDS. Also in Market Hall (Main Hall), the French Market section of Cash & Carry will be dedicated to vintage products including apparel, fashion accessories, gifts and more - all available for immediate purchase.
For the first time during a January market, Design FINDS will be located on the Trade Mart (TM) 1st floor. The category has doubled in size since the June 2011 show and will present a range of exhibitors including Ann Gish, BlissLiving Home, Bungalow, D.

Fashion FINDS and Red Haute FINDS will welcome more exhibitors than before. Both categories located on the WTC 13th floor continue to grow because of the demand for apparel and fashion accessories.
