KeepCalmI’m sure that many of you have seen the latest fad of clothing and accessories with the “Keep Calm” phrase. I created this one because I thought that this really fits with our launch of the new 2014/2015 Nelson-Jameson Buyers Guide.

First, I would like to say Kudos to all of those that were involved with the catalog! I’m sure that many of you feel the same way that I do when we hear the buzz about the launch date of the new catalog. EXCITED!

Waiting to be handed the new Buyer’s Guide takes me back to my childhood memories of waiting for the JCPenney Christmas catalog to come out. For those of you who are too young to know this JCPenney had three catalogs yearly that were about the same thickness as the Buyer’s Guide. They had the Spring/Summer and the Fall/Winter and of course the one that everyone looked forward to especially if you were a child was the Christmas catalog.

This catalog was filled with beautiful toys. Any toy that you could imagine. Of course when the catalog came in the mail I was so excited to see what was new. I would open the book and just admire the beautiful pictures of toys and the children that were smiling in the picture playing with these toys. Just like all the other children lucky enough to get a catalog I started to make a list or circle things that I liked.

But, a good lesson that I learned each year after not seeing my favorite toy under the tree was just like the Rolling Stones song, “You can’t always get what you want. But, if you try sometimes well you might find you get what you need.” At Nelson-Jameson, we strive to do just that -help our customers find what they need!
