Travel Goods Association Releases State of the U.S. Travel Goods Market 2002-2013: Selling Less for More [FULL STORY]
Travel goods sales fell by volume in 2013, but consumers were willing to pay more for those fewer products, leading to a rise in sales by value, according to a new report released by the Travel Goods Association (TGA). Travel goods are defined as luggage, backpacks, travel/sports bags, business cases/computer bags, handbags, personal leather goods, and luggage locks. TGA estimates that sales of travel goods in 2013 surpassed pre-recession levels, with U.S. consumers spending an estimated $29.5 billion in 2013 on travel goods, a rise of 17.2% from 2012.

More California Proposition 65 notices
New "60-day" notices have been issued alleging that brands and retailers sold wallets, handbags and clutches made with leather, vinyl or imitation leather materials (Notice 1) in California that contained Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) and lead in violation of a California law known as Proposition 65 (Prop 65). The notices serve as intent to bring a lawsuit against the recipients that sold these products. TGA has included these notices in the TGA Prop 65 "60 Day Notice" running list. TGA will continue to update this list on a regular basis to help catalog the effects of this law on the travel goods industry. For more information on Prop 65, please go to the Prop 65 page on the TGA website or contact TGA's Nate Herman, 703-797-9062.
