ATLANTA — An influx of buyers from outside the Southeast brought a buzz to the August AmericasMart.
While retailers said that summer selling had been spotty, they had hopes that fall would be stronger and they had their eyes and order books open for distinctive and unusual items that they hoped would persuade consumers to buy. Vendors at the spring 2003 market for social-occasion, prom, pageant and bridal clothing reported a strong show, saying it appeared the AmericasMart’s stepped up efforts to draw retailers from across the nation had paid off.
