DALLAS — There was an uneven mood among buyers at the Dallas Market Center’s market that ended Aug. 19. While there were pockets of optimism, presidential election jitters made many retailers cautious.
Fall and holiday accessories were a priority, such as animal skin handbags, mixed metal jewelry, leather cuffs and semiprecious stack bracelets. Buyers also were pleased to see color return for the second consecutive spring season, from pastels in December deliveries to later shipments of hot pink, orange, emerald, lime, yellow and aqua.
