I just returned from the Atlanta International Gift Show and I'm feeling so excited and inspired. I'm so grateful about our new stores who have joined the family, our reorders, and new custom projects! I've already started designing for some of these projects and can't wait to see the finished product!
For those of you who have never been to the show, AmericasMart (the show venue) is absolutely huge! It's literally 59 miles of market and 7.2 million square feet!
I was lucky enough to be in the Toss Showroom (building 2, 813A) and was among some pretty great brands (and people). It was a preppy paradise!
Here are some picts of what my section looked like:
Next up: Toss Designs – they have cute/witty accessories for women – many of which can be customized with your hometown, initials etc!
Haute Diggity Dog – the snazziest toys for your dog! (Also the maker of the Barkin bag - my personal favorite!)
Next, Clairebella – such beautiful and preppy stationary, wallpaper and other gifts designed by Kathy. Literally obsessed with all of her designs!
Next stop: Fornash – super fun, bright, and preppy jewelry and accessories! I love all of their bright colors!
Finally, DefineMe Fragrance – a fun, fresh, and empowering fragrance brand for women! My personal favorite was their hair perfume!
Of course, we had zero fun! Love this picture of Connie sporting Haute Diggity Dog's Rolex watch dog toy, a perfect compliment to her outfit. Wouldn't you agree?
And no day was complete without some champs/wine at happy hour! It was so great getting to know everyone – from pow wowing about our businesses and sharing ideas, to sharing our (mis)adventures from the night before...
See you all next month at the NY Gift Show and get ready for round two this summer in ATL! If you're going to the show, make sure to stop by the Toss Showroom – not only do we have the best group of designers, but we also have the most fun!
