Congratulations to all of the retailers named Home Accents Today’s 50 Retail Stars for 2011, and a special pat-on-the-back to Retail Star and IMAX customer, Gardenviews, who contacted us to say this:
We want to thank you for your help in achieving this recognition as we know that without your great service and innovative products, this wouldn’t have been possible.
Lou Mascolo and Lori Jermont
We love to hear retailer success stories! It means we’re doing our job – to offer products that provide value for our customers, and their customers.
Gardenviews also named IMAX as a key vendor in their Retail Stars bio.
Mix history and tradition with a lighthearted, whimsical twist or pop of unexpected color…
Experience the magic of the French Quarter – from architectural details such as intricate cast iron railings and lush, private courtyards to the jazz music heritage and magnificent splendor that is Mardi Gras! Interpret all of this into a look that is uniquely your own…
Summer market season is on the way, and with it, hundreds of fresh, new IMAX introductions. We normally wait until market to pull back the curtain on our new intros, but we’re so excited we couldn’t resist giving you a sneak peek. So read on to get an inside look at some of the new product we have in store for you this summer!

Online commerce is becoming a larger part of our industry, and the economy as a whole, every day. Maybe you’ve put it off for years, but it might finally be the right time for you to make the leap to the World Wide Web. Don’t worry, there’s room for you.
According to our latest IMAX survey, only 13% of accessory retailers currently sell online. That leaves a lot of sales space for a properly built and marketed online store. That’s potential that Brent Freeman, who owns and operates online-only accessory retail store, Accents for Elegance can attest to.
“If an accessory retailer doesn’t already have an online store, they should,” said Freeman. “It’s where customers go to begin with. They shop online to compare products and prices before actually making the trip to a brick-and-mortar store.”
