and a. host of other products. A
large representation will come
from South America, Mexico and
Canada, as well.
Trade Fair is carefully timed to
stock the fall and Holiday shelves.
First, orders will arrive in time
for sales testing this fall; repeat
orders will make the Christmas
trade easily.
First showings of Pacific mer

Asian producers are eager to

“They have stopped imitating of

The Washington Trade Fair,
now in its sixth year, is the oldest
international product exposition in
North America. As such, it has
pioneered programs which help
exhibitors better to fulfill Amer
ican market requirements.
Seattle is a fast-growing trade
center—a marketplace enterpris
ing buyers can’t afford to miss.
With other Washington State
Ports it forms the “Gateway to
the Orient,” closer by two days
sailing. Consequently, the trend is
that more and more Asian goods
funnel through the matchless
trade facilities of Washington
Air transportation puts Trade
Fair next door to the Eastern
and Midwestern merchant. Here
he can cinch profitable new trade
contracts and order stimulating
new wares to flavor his lines.
Gift shop executives are advised
to have their orderbooks poised
for action if they want to capi
talize on the accelerating Oriental
trend in American decor. Special
buyers’ hours May 20~24 are from
9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The public,
as well as buyers, will be admitted

Saturdays and Sundays, 1 to 10:30
Volume-wise, orders can range
from one teacup to a shipload. Re
tailers may order from a nation-
allyknown U. S. importer or di
rectly from an overseas manufac
turer. Both will exhibit at the
Fair. Booth salesmen will quote
firm prices and up-to-date deliv
ery schedules. Interpreters will be
on hand to bridge any language

venience to Trade Fair buyers.
