Trend Alert!

The Atlanta Market is always a time for us get a heads up on the latest trends-fashion as well as home decor. There are three huge buildings with about 20 floors each with 50-60 showrooms on each floor. It can be overwhelming, not to mention exhausting! We try our best to search out the best and newest resources and only buy what we love (much to the irritation of those vendors who have "the next best thing to hit the market" that we find foolish.

Today, we walked the High Design floor and were inspired by two things in particular.


Pearls, pearls, pearls...large doses of pearls in every size, strand upon strand...all worn at the same time! We bought lots for everyone from several of our favorite suppliers. So, resurrect all of your pearl jewelry, combine them together and layer a few new ones in with them. There you have it, the latest trend! I'm always thrilled when something I already have in my closet comes back into vogue again. I'll let you know when they arrive.



Aprons were everywhere! Anthropology-worthy styles, collaged in various colors and patterns. For those of you who enjoy cooking and baking, join the club with Linda and myself. Big girl aprons and little girl aprons! So cute. We had a hard time selecting the one line to purchase from the store, but finally choose one that had a great pricepoint along with great style. They should be in the store in time for Holiday gift-giving.

Tomorrow is a short day. We finish and head for home . Stay tuned for the last of my market reports. One more adventursome day remains!

Thank heaven I have you to get me a ticket on the Style Train! I have noticed the trend of really cute aprons; it has made me want to design and sew some (in my spare time, of course).

I am already mentally jumping on this trend train. Though I have few pearls of my own, my mind is flying with the prospect of some thrifting adventures to find some to start my collection.

Thanks for the updates!
