The 2012 New York Toy Fair was a great success. The attendance and weather was great! Bill, Debbie and Ryan enjoyed visiting with many of our valued customers that we only see in New York. Thanks for stopping by and supporting us – we wish you the very best for a successful year!
NEW ARRIVALS! We just received a container with some of our best selling new items this year, including more designs of the popular Spin Duets and our Rainbow Curlie Duet. They are ready for immediate shipment and more are on the way. Our warehouse is busy packing future orders and making sure they go out on their allotted ship dates. We are expecting a very good spring as future orders, both in numbers and value, have increased over last year. Check our our new products for 2012.
In the Breeze is proud to announce a new collaborative vendor – SkyDog Kites. The quality and superior designs Skydog Kites bring to the market will suit our customers needs very well.
Look for the new Skydog products on our website. A brochure will be included in your orders. We hope to have as successful a relationship with Skydog Kites as we do with our other Collaborative vendors.
Punxsutawney Phil’s forecast is in and he says we will have 6 more weeks of winter.
We think spring will come much sooner than that because our new Momma Birds just flew in. Momma Cardinal, Momma Hummingbird and Momma Duck are waiting to brighten up your store.
Jessi is in charge of Graphic Design and Product development. She did the design and development on these fun larger versions of our best selling babies. The quality, size and value will impress you.
Congratulations to Chow and Kim Chong, owners of Unique Flying Objects in Two Rivers WI, on their new addition, Ricky. He is a mini long haired dachshund who is currently 14 weeks old. I am sure with patience and training he’ll become a trusted member of the UFO staff. We hope for you many years of licks and snuggles.
Happy Chinese New Year! Spring Festival is the most important holiday for the Chinese. This is the year of the Dragon. We hope it will be prosperous for us all.
The Kite Trade Association International Show in Las Vegas.
If you are a Kite Store, sell kites or outdoor decorative you should be at this show. The time spent with each other, retailers and manufactures helps this industry grow and stay strong.
This year Bill, Debbie and Ryan from In the Breeze are attending the show. By going to this trade show we gain knowledge, strategies, marketing tools, visual tools, communication and just having fun together.
Contact the KTAI’s website for more information. Next year will be the KTAI’s 25th Anniversary with lots planned for that momentous occasion. Start making plans now to attend. You will not be sorry. We believe in the KTAI. It is very clear to us that our growth in this industry reflects directly because of our involvement with it.
The Seattle Gift Show was January 14th through the 17th this year. Bill, Debbie, Ali and Jessi were there to greet the customers who braved the winter weather to attend. While the earlier show dates and the threat of snow reduced attendance at the show in general, our dedicated customers ventured out to see us so we were happy with the outcome.
Ali and Jessi did great and will be our Seattle girls in the future. They packed up the show line fast and caught an early flight to beat the storm so they could get back home to their awaiting families.
We are proud to announce the opening of our new permanent showroom at AmericasMart- Atlanta Gift Show. We are located in Showroom #767D, Bldg 2, West Wing, Floor 7.

Post Show Addition: Thank you for the best show we have ever had in Atlanta. It was a great opportunity to meet many of our existing customers and we were excited by all the new customers who stopped by. We are also proud to announce that we received an award for the Best Visual Display for our floor. We hope to see you back in July or next January.
