I cannot believe it's already time to blog about market again! It seriously feels like I just did this. I swear that as soon as I turned 30, time went into warp speed mode! If you missed my blog about what we ordered for this Christmas, take a look HERE
So now that we're back from Atlanta, we've been reflecting on what we saw there for 2014 and a few things really stood out. First, gold was EVERYWHERE. It seemed like anything and everything was gilded(and I loved it). Second, there were a lot more colors and patterns than we've seen in the past. The neutrals we saw last July seem to have been replaced by some beautiful cobalt blues and emerald greens, among other colors. The third thing we found was some great new gift lines which will be coming soon for the holidays. The last thing I'm sharing is a few fun displays we saw. My mom and I had a great time looking for new goodies and I'm excited to share what we found with you!
This is the entrance part where you get your badge. You can only attend market if you buy for a store.
Here we are in our first showroom of the trip. We pretty much landed in Atlanta, dropped off our bags, and went straight to market. We can walk to it from our hotel which is really convenient.
Right away, for Spring of 2014, we started seeing lots of gold. I was really happy because I happen to love it. It's so fabulous and classic in any room. Here's some of the gold we ordered:
Now for the patterns and colors!
See the cobalt blue bedding on this linen bed? Last year, it would have just been the neutral linen. Now, everyone is adding lots of color and pattern. I'm actually really excited about it. (I was not excited about the prices in this showroom though. So high end. Bummer!)
Now onto the gifts!
We found candles, scarves, jewelry, and some amazing frames to carry for Christmas.
Lots of scarves. Who doesn't love a scarf in every color???
We found a few cute things to give to baby too! These are actually already in the store.
Fun displays we saw:
Here's the window looking into Park Hill. They always use real plants in their displays and I'm jealous that they can keep them alive. My mom and I are not very good with plants.
I'm always blown away by Gina's displays at Peacock Park. Look at that spiral staircase! Awesome!
Here is the only other picture of us from market. We each took one of each other at our last breakfast of the trip. We were kind of sad to leave. :(
Thanks for reading about our trip to Atlanta for market. It was a lot of fun and we are so incredibly lucky to have Emily, Katie, and Michelle taking care of the store so we can leave without worry!
I hope you're excited to see some color, pattern, and gold mixing with our vintage furniture. Our Facebook page is the best place to see when everything comes into the store. I almost always post something when we get a shipment. And, as always, we will have TONS of new vintage goods coming in every week.
If you'd like to see the official video promo for the market we attended, complete with a cameo from some HGTV stars, I've linked to it here.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUcWVY6nLe4&feature=youtu.be
See ya soon! -Lindsay
