Earlier this year, Arett Sales acquired Commerce’s Good Tidings division, a well-respected, highly successful brand that has been integral to the holiday business of many independent retailers. Arett will continue to provide the same high-quality merchandise and top notch customer service that Good Tidings customers have come to expect.

The Good Tidings showroom will remain open and supported by the same knowledgeable team at its current location in Baltimore, MD through March 15th, 2013. Appointments can be made by calling Dottie at 410-360-6614410-360-6614 or by sending an email to

Many first time Good Tidings customers were amazed with the quality and product selection offered at the Seasonal Showcase. The Good Tidings buying team works throughout the year sourcing new products and trends.

LED lights will continue to be a growing category with many new lighting options. Our Good Tidings light sets carry the longest warranty in the business and our packaging sets a new standard. Battery operated lighting is a growing category. Our Twelve 25 collection of trees includes PVC and PE in pencil, slim, medium, and full silhouettes. New styles in alpines and seedlings will be available. Tabletop trees continue to be strong. New styles in flocked trees and tinsel trees will be on display.

Our Trim-A-Tree area will feature all new themes for 2013. We will have many decorated trees in the showroom created for our trend package:

  • Old Hollywood Glamour – A sophisticated grouping of luxurious components and soft understated colorations. Look for soft, satin pastel ornaments in grey and blue, celery and ivory, blush and champagne, soft copper and cream.
  • Frost Collection – Our best-selling and most fun loving group. Red and white predominate with a touch of lime green, creating unique looks. Everyone’s favorite snowmen, snowflakes, and candy canes are shown on green, red, and white trees.
  • Holiday Naturals – The bounty of nature inspires this collection featuring birds, owls, and forest animals. Natural greenery, berries, pine cones and twigs accent this grouping.
  • Traditional Collection – This collection will incorporate our fondest memories of Christmas. Colors of red, green, gold, and silver are the mainstay of this grouping.

Good Tidings also offers a wide assortment of Halloween and Fall Collections. These collections have been expanded to include lots of new “scary” stuff-goblins, monsters, and ghouls! Also, check out our extension Scarecrow collection.
