What's Happening

P. Graham Dunn Expansion

P. Graham Dunn began a new chapter in its history this year with a formal groundbreaking ceremony celebrating the 84,000 square feet expansion of the manufacturing facility. Construction is well underway and the once was the Buckeye Event Center is now connected with our original building.

Founded in March of 1976, P. Graham Dunn has long been a leading manufacturer of Inspirational Art, Gift and Home Décor, currently distributing to over 5,000 accounts nationwide. The company services accounts that vary from Hobby Lobby and Cracker Barrel to local independent shops, such as Hallmark stores and Christian Bookstores.  Over the last ten years, the company has experienced significant growth which led to the purchase and expansion into the Buckeye Event Center, located next to the facility. Utilizing the existing 120,000 square feet of manufacturing space and the 62,000 square feet obtained through the newly acquired adjacent building, plans to expand are not only warranted but required.  P. Graham Dunn’s new building expansion will include an 80-foot-wide mezzanine, with a third story above the existing roofline. With this addition, the total facility footprint will increase to 266,000 square feet across nearly five acres of land. The family-owned company, which is also celebrating its 40th anniversary, plans to also increase retail and manufacturing space expanding on capacity and capabilities to accommodate its ongoing growth. Construction is expected to continue throughout the next year, with a completed shell of the building set for March of 2017.

Style+Grace Fashion Show
Friday, May 6th at 6:00pm

The meaning behind the title of our fashion show is - simple elegance and sophistication while being modest women of god.  Our hope for the fashion show is that people can come have a good time, eat good food, look at great clothes and do some shopping! We are so excited about the upcoming show and have been working very hard to make it a fun experience. We have two guest speakers who are both great examples for all women! Opening the night will be co-founder of P. Graham Dunn, Leanna Dunn. She is a great influence in the community and is a great asset to the store! We also have Miss Ohio, Sarah Hider, coming to speak to us about her platform that helped her take home the title of Miss Ohio and what she does for our community to withhold those beliefs! There will be great photo opportunities with our guest speakers as well as you and your girlfriends to grab a quick selfie and use our hashtag for the night! We are going to have several door prizes that have been so generously donated by local businesses as well as brands we sell in the store! Everyone will be taking home a “swag bag” full of goodies just as our way of saying “Thanks” for attending!

The clothing is going to be inspirational outfits for Spring and Summer! Learning how to dress in stylish yet modest clothing can be a challenge, but when the right clothes are in front of you, it’s a breeze! Threads has been slowly expanding in 2016 and we are excited to see what else the future holds for our boutique! There will also be children’s looks featured during the night, as the children’s area of the store has also grown! So bring your mom, bring your daughter or grab a couple friends!

WWD MAGIC
Went to Vegas and came back a winner!

Last week our buyers traveled to Las Vegas to an apparel show where they came back with huge success! At the MAGIC show they saw everything from women’s, children’s and men’s in clothing and accessories. We are very excited about some of the new brands they are bringing into the boutique here at the Gallery! We are introducing a denim line for back to school, as well as some great new styles from established brands in our store!

Trends to look for in the upcoming season are, lace, tie-dying, denim, suede and fringe. The color to watch for this year is Pink! Muted pinks are best but different variations are acceptable! No matter what you do in terms of clothing and style, we pretty much have something for everyone and every age! We also are going to be branching out into some Men’s accessories. A great purchase we already have are men’s canvas bags. Anywhere from Duffle bags to backpacks and travel bags, they are a great piece for the man you don’t know what to buy for! We have more styles and colors on the way! Our children’s area has also recently gotten a facelift and we are excited about bringing in some new things for kids! We have some great T-shirts coming, as well as cute accessories and toys!

Overall, we are excited for what the upcoming seasons have in store and we can’t wait to share these new products with you! Please check back for update and follow us on Instagram for photos! @Threadspdg @Pgrahamdunn
