Another interesting development for this month is the popularity of Little Red Riding Hood with Catherine Hardwicke's movie rendition so look for red capes, wolves, forest themes and consider how you can incorporate that with your vintage item tags!
Vintage trends that are still going strong are: Globes, maps, crates, baskets, barware, industrial appliances, farmhouse, typewriters, cameras, letterpress, brass and cast iron animals.
Lockets, secret hiding places, skeleton keys, feathers, arrows, diamonds paper cuts, silhouettes, fortune cookies, wishbones, fortune tellers are also remain popular.
In Fashion look for black paired with white, gold, or navy. Orange, camel, chartreuse, lace, neon, brights. It's all about the shoulders: structured, elevated, outlined, embellished. Faux reptile skins, the 1970s revival, structured wearable art, sporty, nautical, American classics, tribal influence.
If you look through the items in your shop it is a great idea to refresh tags from time to time such as changing a color or trend key word based on the merchandising letter. When creating treasuries keep in mind what is popular during the month. This will increase the odds of your treasury making the Front Page!! It is also the time to start planning for your summer merchandise, dresses, swimsuits, picnics, bar-b-q's and all the fun that summer entails is just around the corner. Plan ahead!
