Atlanta Gift Mart

We are back from shopping the huge and inspiring Atlanta Gift Mart. I go once a year (hopefully twice this year) with my mother. We spend four days walking I can't imagine how many miles around three huge buildings full of amazing merchandise trying to find just the right things for our shops. It is a whole lot of fun and very exhausting. This year we did especially well finding lots of new and exciting merchandise. I am thrilled to be adding a line of handmade vintage looking gorgeous jewelry. The hard part will be waiting the five or so weeks for it to arrive!!

One really fun thing ... we happened to be at the Bethany Lowe booth at the perfect time. Bethany and some of her designers were all decked out in Halloween costumes signing and giving away fun little trinkets (I got the sweet little glitter pumpkin bucket shown above). The whole huge showroom was rocking with people, food, drinks, etc. I love her stuff so it was great to meet her. We also got to see Patience Brewster although we didn't talk to her. I flip over her stuff every time I see it!!

I did not bring my camera because you really aren't supposed to take pictures. I snapped a few with my phone but I have no idea how to get them from there to here.

I will be listing all of our fabulous new goodies as they arrive ...

Thanks for visiting ...
