I'm off to browse showroom after showroom, building after building of fine (and some not-so-fine) furniture, accessories, art, lighting , and all things decor-related.
Ahhh, High Point, North Carolina, I've missed you so. For so many years you were a twice-annual inspiration filled, exausting week.
Now that I'm no longer officially in the retail world, my need to come to the market is null. Luckily, my former business partner still goes, and we make a good team on such trips.
I still do some small projects here and there with her, mostly marketing-focused. I enjoy these occasional trips back to market with her to keep my hand in the game. Because you never know what the next big idea could be...
For the next three days, I'll get to act as design assistant of sorts, helping her keep track of the schedule, enjoying as she selects and orders for various clients, visiting some of my favorite showrooms, snapping pics, and soaking it all up.
