Off to Market!


antique-design-high point

Leaving early tomorrow morning for the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina!

It might seem silly, but I always get giddy about seeing the latest and newest trends in furniture and accessories.

It will be a short turn-around trip- we go in, do our business, and come right home.

One of these days, I want to take some time to do some fun things when we go down there-  like scoping out some great antique/thrift shops.


I’m certain we’ll see lots of cool and exciting new things in the showrooms and maybe even find a few new lines to carry.

I plan on shooting some photos on my iPhone- I’m not lugging a heavy camera this trip.

As it is,  I always end up hauling a bag that weighs a ton even before I start picking up paperwork and samples.


My comfy flat shoes are already broken in and ready for lots of walking, but I know I’ll still be tired and achy at the end of the day.

Too bad I won’t be able to meet up with a group of bloggers who are attending market as members of the press.

Their itinerary and mine won’t mesh- they have some planned showroom visits long after I’m already on my way back to Ohio.

Hope they have a fun trip. It will be a little introduction as to what it is to be at market. Just without the work!

See ya when I get back!

My boss at the furniture store goes to Vegas market. Never High Point. Mostly comes back with contemporary furniture and accessories.

Sue - Isn't market the most exciting time? It's just a thrill to get to see all of the new things? I always enjoyed going with my Interior Design business.

Looking forward to your pictures.
