To Match? Or To Coordinate?

contributed by Barb

The shop is bursting with new yarns! Every time our UPS driver lugs boxes into the shop, we have so much fun unloading them. Sometimes when we open boxes from different suppliers, we get excited because the new items tend to coordinate. It give us good ideas for merchandizing, and it shows that different companies are on the same page when it comes to introducing new colors.

We just received the Harlow bag from Namaste. This bag is functional and beautiful, and comes in the new Namaste colors of Espresso, Eggplant, and Caribbean Blue. We've also got some new colors in the circular cases (the same three plus Pumpkin Spice). 

Our favorite new color is Espresso. Look how beautiful it is with the new Debbie Bliss Angel yarn in the colors Gold and Burnt Orange:

Fall is coming! Since we all love brown and orange, look at the Espresso bag paired with the Pumpkin Spice accessories:
The new Caribbean Blue is so pretty. This color has been popular for ages now, and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Once I decide which color bag I want, I will have to start a scarf. The question is will it match, or coordinate?
