This Market was a very special one because our friend, Susan, set up a wholesale space for the very first time. Susan, along with 2 other moms, Julie and Crystal, create the BEST vintage inspired home decor, gifts and jewelry. We've carried Knollwood Lane for many years and now it will be available for other stores in other cities to carry! We usually go to Atlanta for Market but we just HAD to be there to see her temporary space in Dallas. I took pictures so you guys could see how pretty it was!
This is our group. Such great ladies!!!
The coolest part was, they won an award for Best Visual Presentation!!! It's hard to see in the picture but Susan is holding her award. The hard work paid off!!
Now, onto our buying experience for The White Rabbit! The lobby of Market always has little vignettes to entice you to visit certain showrooms. The one below had a lot of elements we noticed are going to be trendy in home decor; metallic touches mixed with organics, raw wood, fur, birch(It's on the wall), and mixing lots of textures. We like to mix in some of these elements with our vintage items to give it a cozier look.
We saw a lot of gilded items that used to only be in the high end showrooms showing up in the more affordable ones. Finally!
Below is a pretty tote. It's great for someone who has moved a lot or travels.
**update-these are in the store now!***
Some pretty handmade frames we ordered. I love it when we can find handmade items that we can afford! She had a few other styles that will be in the store soon. So darling.
We found a line of organic baby items that will be so great for shower gifts. These are swaddle blankets. I loved the gray whale patterned one. There's a porcupine too. :)
Ok, Ok, calm down. Let's get back to the shopping! Here are a couple of cool looking showrooms.
We re-ordered Le Moo from them. She is just so fab. She's already here!
This is the only "selfie" we took! We were on the shuttle in the morning of the last day, headed to the cash and carry building again. So. Very. Tired. But excited about getting more cash and carry goodies.
Found some great leather bracelets. These are so great layered with other bangles. We brought them back with us so they're in the store!
Overall, it was a really exciting trip to Dallas. We ordered great stuff for the store, brought back some fun jewelry, and had a lot of fun with friends. I hope you enjoyed reading about it and get a chance to stop in and see the new stuff soon! -Lindsay
