NEW YORK — Retailers shopping the Moda Manhattan and Fashion Avenue Market Expo trade shows this week were filling needs in their inventories — having bought closer to the season than in years past — and looking for products with a spark to keep their offerings fresh.
For the most part, their searches for fall, holiday and spring goods were successful at the shows, held here at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. In the course of their buying, though, retailers also stirred — of all things — a faint optimism on the part of some vendors.
