Early Buy Sneak Peek – Spring/Summer 2013 (part 1)


Spring/Summer 2013 Catalog Cover WOW! What a busy summer!

It’s been a whirlwind for many of us at Magnet Works lately…for two reasons:

1) We decided to change up our catalog schedule – we’ve moved up our Spring/Summer catalog, which is normally mailed out in January. We will now release it at the start of our Early Buy program in the first half of October. It will take the place of our usual, smaller Early Buy catalog. Not only will this save some trees, but it will set the stage for number…

2) We’ve been cranking on a totally awesome and HUGE debut for the January markets!!!

I cannot wait to tell you more about it! I know you’re on the edge of your seat, but I can’t say any more about it…except that it’s not what you’d expect :)

HOWEVER, I can give you the first, exclusive sneak peek at our new Spring/Summer catalog, which will be on its way to our retailers this week!

Included in the new catalog are dozens of stunning, new seasonal collections and lots of special surprises! There’s so much to share about this new catalog that we’re splitting our sneak peek posts into three parts, so stay tuned!

Without further ado, here’s a sampling of our exciting NEW designs for Spring/Summer 2013:

    We are hoping for more Iris designs. Any in the works?

    • Mike Todd Says:

      I’ll check with Sue and Anne, who head up our art team and get back to you. I think right now they’re working on the next Fall/Holiday season – so it might be a great time to plant the Iris seed/bulb in their minds ;) Thanks for leaving a comment!

  9. Liz Baumgart Says:

    Is it easier to tell you my least favorite: Red Truck and Rose Garden. Can’t wait for the next installment. These are lovely.

  10. Sharon Says:

    Love the Pinwheels and Gerbera Daisies! While the Desert Garden isn’t for me in the SouthEast, it’s nice to see something for the folks in the SouthWest! As always, another great job. And yes, I am on the edge of my seat. Hurry up before I fall off!!!

  11. Colleen Winter Says:

  16. Maureen Bryngelson Says:

    They are all nice, but the red truck, gerber daisy and pansies are my favorite. More iris’s would be nice as it is our city flower. Can’t wait to see them all.

  17. Liz Baumgart Says:

    OK, so I evidently blew it on the Red Truck! Who knew? Love seeing everyone’s feedback – helps us all stretch out of our comfort zone. Bet there will be a Red Truck hanging in our showroom this spring!

    • Marsha F Says:

      @Liz… I totally hear you on the “comfort zone” issue. As a rep, I’m forever encouraging my customers to not just buy “what they like” and thereby reach different customers. :)
