Severe winter weather coupled with a stronger U.S. dollar and weak foreign growth led the National Retail Federation to revise its retail sales growth forecast for 2015.

Also this week, Tiffany & Co. announced it will be updating three classic collections for the fall and will have a new advertising campaign to support them. Two of the models featured in the campaign are sisters Dree and Langley Fox Hemingway, the great-granddaughters of writer Ernest Hemingway.

In New York, preparations took place ahead of the weekend’s trade shows,  JA New York Summer and U.S. Antique Shows, which is setting the stage for its show at the Metropolitan Pavilion.
