Atlanta Market 2010, by Amanda Burdge

Well it is that time of year. I am headed to Atlanta for the Home and gift Market, and I am so excited to meet Dayka Robinson of Meditations of life and style. If you remember, I posted my elation in this post about how excited I am to hang out with this talented, fabulous gal.


I am even more excited about hanging out with her as she chauffeur's me around Atlanta like the Big D of a designer I am! By the way- She's taking me to a V.I.P event Thursday night who happens to have as their guest, none other than Jonathan Adler himself!

I have a laundry list of things to do, and see but I will take photos along the way to keep you posted. I will report back all of the upcoming trends, and color movements. I will also be happy to show you this years animal fashions that will be seen everywhere. We've seen owls, horses, fish, ducks, penguins, birds, antlers, just to name a few. Market is also a great way to view market trends in spending. If Market is strong, then buying power is up, and this is good for business' all around.

  10. I love the color of the carpet in this living room. it is very appealing. My sister would love this too. She loves carpets very much especially fluffy ones. And her carpet cleaners Cape Coral knows how she wants her carpets to be cleaned. She scrupulously checks the fabric after carpet cleaning (Ft. Myers) to be sure that they have not been damaged. She is also very particular with the materials for cleaning. She doesn't want it hard rather she wants soft solutions to maintain her carpets softness.
