Accessories Resource Team (ART™), the association for the decorative accessory segment of the home furnishings industry, has announced the 19 vendors are participating in the organization’s ART Card Program during the spring High Point Market in April.
The ART Card Program, which launched in the summer of 2011, is exclusive to ART™ members. Annual membership to ART is open to home accents retailers, manufacturers, reps, designers, and industry professionals ($250/year). The ART Card program provides each retailer member with a personalized ART Card, which can be presented to participating vendors upon placing an order to receive exclusive specials. The savings realized by the retail member often exceed the yearly membership dues cost, according to Sharon Davis, executive director of ART.
A complete list of the High Point vendor specials is listed below
