Abbey Press to Celebrate Its 50th Anniversary

Abbey Press, a wholesale marketer of inspirational and religious giftware, greeting cards and publications, is celebrating its 50-year anniversary this year.

To commemorate the milestone, the company is serving food and offering special games and products at this month's gift shows in Atlanta, Chicago and Las Vegas. Additionally, the company will offer free freight to the first 50 customers placing orders at the shows and is debuting 11 new products inspired by best-selling Abbey Press merchandise from the past.

Options Is Celebrating its 20th Anniversary

Twenty years ago two road reps, Sheila Nessle and Taft Flittner, started Options in Florida with a plan and much determination. Options believes that service and product knowledge are the better part of sales, and Nessle and Flittner were and are even more so today committed to provide the best of both. Over time the company grew from a Florida-based organization to a southern firm with a team of 20.

The group focuses on multiline merchandising and product development with a creative product mix of souvenirs, toys, candy, accessories and trendy gifts. Options is proud to still be working with some of its original manufacturers: Squire Boone Village, Play Visions and Swibco.

Please join Options as it kicks off a celebration in Atlanta during the AmericasMart gift show January 7-14. Options is located in showroom #785 on the 7th floor, building # 2. There will be lots of promotions, giveaways, ribbon cutting and a celebration party Saturday 1/11 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
