To Market, To Market...

Just back from the Atlanta gift mart, so much fun and as always there is so much to see!
Three days of shopping, shopping, and more shopping!
I spent most of my time combing the temporaries and gardens for new and unique finds. 
I wish I had been able to take more pictures to share with you all, but most vendors and showrooms prohibit photography.
Luckily, I was able to photograph this amazing dress below...

This angel form displayed in the Kalalou showroom was without a doubt the most imaginative creation I saw at market!  
The dress is made entirely of faux foliage (what looks like sansiveria or mother-in-laws tongue) and flowers (possibly magnolias?)  A real showstopper!

These colorful flowers, letters, and numbers are handmade out of recycled tin.

I found this company down in the temporaries, wouldn't these flowers look great hanging on a patio wall or in a young girls bedroom?

Unfortunately this was the only decent picture I was able to get from my favorite showroom, Park Hill.  It was so crowded, you could hardly move around in there!

 I had such a great time and found some wonderful new merchandise for the fall and holiday season and I just received word today that one of my orders has already shipped.  
I can't wait to start unpacking all of my goodies!

I'm already looking forward to the January market, but next up is the world's longest yard sale running along the Hwy 127 corridor from Alabama to Ohio.  This will be my first 127 experience and I'm just chomping at the bit, only a week and a half til I leave!  Just imagine all the wonderful treasures there will be!

Warmest wishes to you all,
