I've spent the last two days at the Atlanta Gift Show at America's Mart. It is the largest gift show in the USA. If there can be such a thing as dish coma, I think that I'm suffering from it!!!!
What's your pleasure? Fine porcelain, bamboo, melamine, tin, pottery, or paper?
And your design preference? Oriental, rustic, contemporary, floral, whimsical, or nautical?
And your linens? Cotton, organdy, linen, or blends?
Placemats? Straw, linen, polypropylene, cotton, or twig?
How about serving pieces?
And then there were the seven floors of holiday decorations!! Don't even let me start there!!!!
It is an event filled with drama. Every exhibitor is hoping for that big order that puts them on the map and every buyer is hoping to find those very special items that make their shop a "must shop" place with plenty of profit. It's a balancing act that brings hoards of people and merchandise to the heart of Atlanta. It's so much fun to attend. I can just observe and learn the new sources, as I don't have to sell or stock a shop. I'm just there to find the "stuff" for my design clients. Boy!!! Am I full of ideas!!!!
Be sure to read tomorrow's post. To celebrate my 100th post, I have a great giveaway!!!
