WE have for years come down to the Chicago Mart to place our orders and attend the sample sales. AS of Spring of 2012, most of the showrooms told us they were going out. WE were completely shocked and dismayed at the news. There was a fall sample sale arranged for Nove.
of 2012 so we went. It's absolutely heartbreaking to watch what was once thriving floors of gift showrooms have gone to one floor and that isn't even full of gift showrooms.
The security was much more lax than in the past. It seems as though it is an end of an era for the gift lines. Kurt Adler and DNA seem to be the only ones going strong and I hope they continue. The food court as usual was good.
