Acquisitions

Girls With Great Lines Giftware Show

The New England Made Giftware & Specialty Food Show announced the acquisition of the Girls With Great Lines (GWGL) wholesale giftware show. The all-volunteer, representative-run wholesale giftware show is entering its 10th year and serves the Cape and Islands area of Massachusetts.“Girls With Great Lines started as a small 12 booth show in an empty storefront during the height of the recession. Our goal was to bring local reps and retailers together here on Cape Cod,” said Paula Mullen of Prestige Marketing and founding member of GWGL. “A decade later, we are still rep-driven.  But now we are an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that has grown to almost 100 booths. Along with great attendance, and a yearly waiting list to exhibit, we have been able to donate all our net profits to local charities such as Emerson House (a home for women rebuilding their lives after addiction), A Baby Place (a resource for disadvantaged new mothers and their babies) and Camp Jabborwocky (serving the mentally disabled).”
