ThePinterest Trends of 2016!

We’ve got a list of top trends predicted for the coming year for our gift and home retailers!PinterestOver here at Melrose we truly believe that social media is an important tool for our retailers to use to drive business. Which is why, at the close of 2015, we are looking at the upcoming trends of 2016—on Pinterest!

You may remember that we partnered with Suzy Teele, the COO of Snap Retail, to bring you a Pinterest 101, now we’re coming back with a 102 to help you brush up your Pinterest boards and bring more trendy items to your customers! (Also, please take this as inspiration as you prepare to visit the gift shows this January!)
