Atlanta Market Day 7....really?

We found some great new resources today! With Christmas behind us, we could concentrate on finding some fun new offerings to bring in and our design vision was working overtime!

No elevator traffic was a joy, but we traded that for lack of food vendors. Hmmmm.  Tomorrow is the last day. We work a full day and drive back to Charlotte after we finish. Generally, we return too late to post a report, so this will be my last peek at what is to come!

Some of our favorite vendors were sporting the brights that we saw in the fashion trends!

Several styles of dining chairs. (Note the chrome yellow one in the background!)

Pure Style.

Even the kitchen can be in sync!

One of our last stops was a great new resource we found early in the week. We finally found time to retrace our steps to place the order. These are paper note cards and napkins and note pads made from the archives of drawings from a fashion designer. The files were recently found by the daughter of the artist and this is what has been offered by this discovery! Of course, Linda was enthralled and we purchased some note cards to share. Not sure these will even make it into the store!

I couldn't help but think of my sister, Denise. She studied fashion design and costumes with great passion. How cute these would look as framed art for her studio! As yet, they are not offering the images for framing. I made the suggestion, of course!

We ordered these printed table runners to be sold by the bolt of by the yard. Kraft paper with black print. So cute.Note the collection of vintage meat covers they used for props! Be still my heart.

This is a pad shaped like a wedding cake. It comes with the butter knife! Brides, this one's for you.

Both Linda and I have a weakness for tea towels and these really took our breath. They are unusual in size and style! BIG! We ordered several sizes and designs. I suppose you can share the joy. These are great!

I convinced Linda to pose in this chef's apron. After we made a count for what she and I wanted and several gifts that came immediately to mind, we placed the order!  

One more market day and we're headed home. As for me, I just want to take a day off, sit back and kick my shoes off.

Linda looks so sweet with that apron. Now I'm surprised no feet pictures. Hee Hee.
