So what do you think are the best summer trends?
  • XobbaXobba April 2011
    Of course, we all want to protect our secret niches (or not) but what obvious trends and seasons are coming about that you are willing to share?

    The first obvious one, is Mother's Day

    Any ideas?

    Then there is Father's Day. Also, Beach chairs, Shoes, Portable DVD players and watches are hot topics to write about!!
  • Moderate travel, within a few hours drive of an area. Green trends in fashion, and green trends that cut costs too.

    Ways to have fun without spending a lot on gas.

    Wavvy Hair (as opposed to the straight Brazilian Blow out look), the retro styles from the 70's and 80's.

    Between June (flag day) and July 4, there's a lot of American patriotic stuff sold. Some other ideas - BBQ grill items & outdoor/camping gear.
    Don't surround yourself with yourself; move on back two squares.

    The supermarkets usually give some good clues when they start setting up their seasonal sections - the BBQ/FLag stuff is usually well represented

  • Again?  I thought that had slowed down some.  Was a huge topic about 1-2 years ago.

    I thinking "printable mothers day cards" and gifts that are delivered (flowers,candy, that company that makes fruit baskets) especially with a regional twist for big markets stands a chance for QDF today.

  • Fresh as in new or as in fresh fruit?

    Do you know that you can get fresh fruit baskets with the fruit cut into the shape of flowers?  :D

    Those fresh fruit flowers are made by a company called "edible arrangements", a nationwide franchise and they are quite expensive. I just couldnt remember the name when I referenced it above.

    and nope, not news - just fresh!

    I gamble on QDF rather frequently
