I already posted my entry about the everyday items we ordered at this Market in Atlanta. Now I'm writing about the Fall and Christmas items we ordered for 2014. We didn't find a ton of great Halloween goodies this year, but we did find more Fall than usual. As far as Christmas, we ordered, as usual, TONS of animal things. We cannot resist a sweet deer, polar bear, or snowy owl. Impossible.
We are really excited to start getting the shipments in July so we can prep for an amazing holiday season.
Here's an owl on the moon from the Bethany Lowe showroom. Owls are always popular, especially for Fall. I kind of want to hang him in my window for Halloween.
Park Hill always has great dried leaves for Fall. They know how to make a Thanksgiving display look so classy and we love that they mix real plants into their showroom displays.
We are really picky about our florals, especially about how shiny they are. We try to find wreaths and garlands that look real and believe me, it isn't easy. The ones above and below made the cut. Thank goodness.
There is a fun showroom that is nothing but ribbon and we always get stuck there for like 2 hours. We asked one of the reps to take our picture. This was right before we made a giant pile of everything we wanted for the holidays. Left to right, Angie(my Mom), Susan Medart, and me(Lindsay).
The photo isn't great but here are our Fall, Autumn, and Thanksgiving choices. The chevron on the left might be my favorite. I also think the pheasant ribbon would be awesome mixed with the argyle one for a Fall wreath.
These pumpkins have a masculine touch to them. I absolutely love them. Susan held them up so I could take a picture.
We ordered the pillows below for Fall and they accidentally shipped them already. We decided that they're pretty for all year so we kept them!
Got all three of these. The two on the ends are made of a sweater-like material.
Got this slightly smaller one too.
...And a driftwood deer head.
The Polar Bear is going in the window. He's pretty big so we just got a couple. What a sweet face. Got the garland he's wearing too.
Found a plaid deer in a different showroom. I love it!!
We found a cute Cardinal ornament!!! We saw several but a lot of them were kind of cheesy. This felted one is adorable. I can't wait to get him and see him on a tree! Now let's keep our fingers crossed that our St. Louis Cardinals have a great season!!
I saved the Cody Foster pictures for last because it's the most fun showroom for Christmas! They always have a lot of fun, creative displays along with the cutest ornaments and houses.
An awesome collage above their mantle.
One of the coolest things in Cody Foster was the GIANT paint by number painting on the wall. I don't know whether they had a stencil or an actual painting or what, but it looked really neat.
Overall, market was a great experience. We ordered a lot of great goodies that are already here as well as some fun things for the winter. There are a lot of things I didn't get pictures of because we were so busy making decisions! When they ship in July, I'll post some pics so you can see some of the other things that will be out for Christmas. Can't wait!! Thanks for reading!-Lindsay
