a trip to the atlanta americas mart gift & home furnishings market never fails. three buildings with a total of 45 floors filled with all sorts of treasures is just the jolt i needed to kick off a new year as a shop owner and designer.
there are always the great go to showrooms and designers to visit, but i am even more excited when i meet the newcomers to the market. it’s so satisfying to know that we are all out there creating, hustling and bringing a little beauty to the world.
i can’t wait for my new goodies to arrive in the shop - they are coming from all over the world and i was psyched to see a good amount being made right here in the usa! be on the look out for straw bags and baskets galore, beautiful pottery, hints of tropical home decor, breezy clothes and don’t even get me started on the accessories.
the best part is there are no rules. mix it up, show your personality and have some fun. don’t put it in your house, wear it or gift it if you don’t love it!
