After the cold and gloomy winter, we are eagerly awaiting spring with its sunshine that makes our soul smile! Thanks to the spring equinox, we’re able to enjoy longer days and shorter nights.

How gorgeous! Soon we will be able to leave our windows wide open and have the refreshing breeze and warm air flow in and refresh our homes. With those warm thoughts in mind, let’s get you caught up at Audrey’s!
Audrey’s Launches Nearly 700 New Items!
In Atlanta this past January, Audrey’s introduced nearly 700 new items in the categories of fall, winter and everyday. The new release was extremely well received among current customers as well as many new customers that came into the Atlanta showroom, and they were pleasantly surprised to find a great new resource. For this new release we are continuing our trend and intentional focus to introduce product with a fresh, clean and colorful look within collections. We continue to expand on best-selling categories of home decor, wall decor, floral and lighting while offering a wide variety of fabrications, many with mixed material compositions.

Below is a highlight of a few of our collections that debuted in Atlanta this past January.
A Touch of Flair collection features many black and white patterns that are new for us!  These items offer a mix of modern trends and patterns, with the classic farmhouse vibe we all know and love.  Our White Cottage Stoneware pottery was a show-stopper in Atlanta – the simple logo makes such a statement.  Going right along with the black and white color scheme is our white enamel pieces and beautiful warm, wood tones that pull it together.  All of these pieces are versatile in the fact they are sure to add function and beauty to any space!
Did you know the Pantone color of the year is blue?  Staying ahead of the game for the last two catalogs, we introduced some blue textured pillows and pottery.  Our throw pillows are cozy and soft, making these pillows a must-have – purchase 3 or more to create an eye-catching display.  Completing the look, our pottery empty, or filled with simple greenery, is sure to liven up the room and offer elegant farmhouse style to your space.
Pick of the Patch was designed to be light, fun, and whimsical – but still keep some of those natural fall touches that everyone loves.  From the pop of copper that brings out the Jarrahdale Pumpkin, to the white Cotton Candy Pumpkin that keeps it fresh, but still keeping the classic orange pumpkin to pull it all together to keep it warm.  Pair these items with our rose hip and mini pumpkin floral pieces to add the final touch to your display.
What do you get when you mix Christmas and puppies?  An irresistibly, heart-warming collection!  These pieces feature adorable puppies loaded into the bed of a classic red pick-up truck.  With our variety of metal tins and bins and winter greenery to choose from, it will be very easy to create a festive display full of holiday spirit.  We’re not surprised that our red truck garland was a hit in Atlanta!
When you see this collection, you can’t help but feel JOYful!  Bright red and greens, red check accent pattern, and fun winter greenery make for the perfect Christmas decor pieces for the home.  Included in this display is our ceramic luminary snowflake lantern that comes in 2 different sizes to add a happy hint of seasonal style all winter long.  We hope this collection brings as much JOY to you as it does us – and don’t forget to leave out the milk & cookies for Santa!

Retailer Spotlight
That Special Gift located in Burlington, KY, is owned by Sue and Steve Holt, and they believe that the store’s purpose and success are in the hands of a higher power. After hearing Sue's story of success, one is inclined to agree. Sue got into the retail business with her husband Steve, after he suffered an injury and was unable to work his postal job. They started out by selling at a weekend flea market. After 2 years they took a leap of faith and opened a daily retail store in a strip mall across town. Despite their lack of retail experience and their huge jump from part-time to full-time retailers, the Holts have enjoyed continuous success since they started. Sue gives all the credit and glory to God.
Sue said they learned how to market themselves and how to source and select the right products for their customer base. The merchandise that Sue and her husband chose for their store is lovely and seemingly perfect for their customers. Candles, home accents, plush, frames, wall art and home decor. It's very evident that all of the products in That Special Gift are carefully chosen for quality and value and there is a nice variety of price points to suit a variety of customers' needs. "Even the lower price point items have perceived value, which is important," according to Sue. “With Audrey’s, from day one we were attracted by their great selection of quality merchandise. Also their low minimums are a big plus!”
Despite the amount of time and effort put into achieving a great product mix, Sue says "It's never about the stuff but about the faith." Perhaps for that reason, Sue has always believed strongly in the integrity of her store and everything in it. She doesn't believe in underselling or discounting.
But perhaps the most remarkable thing is that Sue believes strongly in offering her customers what can't be bought…a place of retreat, a sympathetic soul to listen, and often times, a shoulder to cry on. And for that reason, people have developed a very personal real relationship with the Holts, and That Special Gift transcends the normal retail/customer relationship and has carried the Holt's and their business throughout the years. "People come in thinking 'That Special Gift' means something they can buy for someone else," said Sue "but they end up realizing that it's something special they received, just by coming into the store."
