Our trip to Atlanta this week was a nice mix of business and pleasure. We enjoyed visiting with family as we made a stop in Charlotte to visit my cousin James and his wife, Lara… and see their beautiful new home. Second stop was to visit my husband’s family in Atlanta before checking into our hotel for a few days of buying at the Home Decor and Gift Show.
Day One started bright and early with scheduled appointments with some of our favorite vendors. We focused on moderately sized wall art, clocks, lighting and accent furniture and we were thrilled with what we found. One of the advantages of going to market is seeing the creative merchandising and display ideas… 

  

Old crates, whether on the floor or on the wall, make for rustically beautiful storage and display.

   

One of my favorite tabletop displays – just beautiful!

  

We found lots of new lighting options for the stores as well – love this rustic chandelier with its crystal accents.

Stay tuned… More to come!
