Best Of Show, LLC announced formation of the gift industry’s newest concept in market showrooms. Three gift industry CEO’s have come together to create a unique collective. Molly Wilson, CEO molly&drew®, a gourmet powerhouse pairing consumers love of beer with delicious bread mixes; Ben Torrens, CEO Think Pray Gift, inspiring the gift industry with Color Changing Story Mugs among other unique art and gift items; and Paul Lowrie, an industry veteran, most known for William Randal Publishing’s CHAT PACK, the bestselling ice-breaker question cards, have teamed up to bring their companies together in one room with one simple goal: to strengthen the manufacturer/buyer relationship.

These three Midwest-based new showroom owners have seen a growing need in the marketplace to simplify, reduce expenses and tighten the bond between stores and those who create the goods they sell. They have chosen the Las Vegas Market to launch their dynamic showroom space for the summer market.

Best of Show is staffed with owners, artists, creators and makers. Unique features include a buyer concierge staff to facilitate buyer/vendor social marketing, market time recharging and assisting in sales efforts.

Manufacturers in Best of Show were all hand-selected through a juried process and are committed to working with store owners and buyers to provide solutions to the current retail economic environment.

Categories represented in this new concept include home accents, bath and body, gourmet, fashion, stationery, fragrance, general gift and inspirational.

The Las Vegas Market provided Best of Show premier space, and Best of Show is thrilled with the new relationship. Vendors in Best of Show include: Iowa-based Milkhouse Candles, the country’s largest producer of soy wax candles; Da Bomb Bath Fizzers, an on-trend, American-made, overnight success story featuring a pair teenage sisterpreneurs™ from Minnesota whose bath bombs all have surprises inside; and Sunleaf Naturals, an innovative essential oil-focused company that partners with upscale retailers to market their line of home and body care products.
