Is Your Shop Ready For Valentines Day?

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and people will be splurging on gifts. Last year, spending hit the second highest in 15-year history, as per the National Retail Federation’s survey.

About 55% of the population will likely celebrate the day this year with the biggest spending by millennials (25-34 age group). The top spending category is usually jewelry!

Given an uptick in seasonal sales, companies selling Valentine’s Day products will see a boost in sales no doubt.  Show your love, and exploit the near-term trend…  Stock up your shop with some of our best selling products!

Rose Gold is one of the hottest trends in jewelry within the last 6-12 months, and it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!  We’ve got some great ideas to help you stock up for gifts to provide something for every budget

 

Rose Quartz and Sandalwood malas & wrist malas make great, low priced gift items.  Add on a few Rose Gold plated accents, or pink tassels, and you’ll be in tip-top shape!

Peach Moonstone, Rhodonite, and Lepidolite are great mid-priced items to keep your sales “in the pink”.

Last year Americans spent an average of $143.56 (or a total of $19.6 billion) on Valentine’s Day.  This is up from $18.2 billion the previous year but lower than the recent record of $19.7 billion in 2016.

For those customers who may want to spend a little more for some really exclusive gifts, check out our Kunzite and Ruby malas & wrist malas.

The Wrist Game

Men’s and women’s beaded bracelets are an ongoing trend, in and throughout the different sectors of style and fashion that are currently prevalent worldwide.  As an adaptation to the usual malas, wrist malas (in varying designs) and Shamballa bracelets we’ve been selling (over 10 years in the game), we can also make them in combinations of different stone, wood, seed, and metal beads.  We really enjoy coming up with new styles and designs, which we’re obliged to test!  We use them, wear them (you’re welcome, our pleasure), to see how they work, how they look, how they feel, and how they endure, and then find ways to improve them!  We don’t feel that fashion and spirituality need to be separate, and yet we’re always aware of the problem of spiritual materialism (aka- how “spiritual” products are marketed as a solution to the first noble truth, dukkha).  Hard pill to swallow for retailers, I know, but let’s not try to win the game by foiling the audience.  Let’s win the game by inspiring wakefulness!  And the good news is that we are seeing a lot of really great advertising and promotions throughout the retail sector in the yoga/boho/spirituality marketplace.  The mindfulness and yoga revolution is in full force folks!  Take a look at what we’re vibing on these days, and let us know what we can do to help you get some of our products into your store.  As always, our focus is on custom designs for wholesale supply, so please feel free to come to us with your own designs, and we’ll make them!  So, dear shop owners, save yourself the time, energy, labor, etc., and order them from us!  Sign up to be a retailer by filling out the request on our website at greateasternimports.com/customer/account/create.
