Welcome to and! Sales, where we represent brands and vendors in the home décor and current trend categories of the Gift and Home market. We’re thrilled to meet you! Our organization is dedicated to inspiring and promoting strong partnerships with our vendors, manufacturers, independent sales force, and retailers.

We believe that the success and experience of our clients directly affect our success and yours. That’s why we’re constantly on the lookout for the best businesses and people to establish long-term partnerships with.

At and! Sales, we’re always looking to inspire! We know that the world changes every day, so we keep a sharp focus on trends in fashion, technology, the economy, product, media, and our surroundings. By staying knowledgeable and up-to-date on these developments, we inspire our vendors, sales teams, and customers to take advantage of every opportunity that arises.

Territories We Serve

Our team is comprised of independent, professional road warriors and virtual sales experts who cover the Great Lakes states and Midwest, including Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kentucky, North Dakota, and South Dakota. We have also recently expanded our territory to offer full coverage of the Iowa. From road representation to our virtual sales capabilities, we are focused on providing the best service to both our retailers and manufacturing partners.


Middle America and the Great Lakes region are flooded with wholesale buying opportunities and trade shows for retail buyers. This is one of the major reasons that having a strong, competent, and engaged group representing your business and your brand is so important to the territory.

Yes, you need and deserve a team that is present, networked, and operating at the Atlanta Mart, Dallas Market Center, Las Vegas Market, and Highpoint. But our team is also active at garden center shows, Women’s Collective, formally Stylemax, and the Inspire Home Show (International Housewares Show).

We have participated in the Farm and Fleet Show, International Restaurant Show, plus the Sweets and Snacks Expo. We also actively take space at relevant local-level gift shows such as the Gaylord, Michigan, and Grand Rapids, Michigan Gift Shows.

We work booths at any show in our territory or any show that is hardware related when it is beneficial. If you need assistance in the selection of shows or getting organized and registered for shows, we view that as part of our partnership.
