I attended the Atlanta Gift Market last week, a trip that I always enjoy and wanted to share some of my photos. I love to attend market and while there, check out new products and trends, as well as meet up with friends. Atlanta is considered the best of all the gift markets.
Needless to say, July in Atlanta is so NOT cool, so I really enjoyed seeing Christmas with snow in some of the showroom windows. I felt cooler just looking at these windows. This white reindeer was in the Cody Foster and Co. showroom. This reindeer, combined with snow-covered white trees, made me instantly feel cooler.
This whole display in the Mark Roberts showroom was really refreshing and had me on the verge of singing “Jingle Bells” (well not really since I can’t carry a tune). They did have another deer that was singing Christmas songs, but I didn’t join in.
I love looking at the displays at Market. This vintage bicycle was standing outside the Vintage showroom and was one of several vintage type bicycles I saw displayed throughout Market.
The Kalalou showroom is always on my list to visit as it’s always fun to see what they will display at the entrance to their showroom. This huge elephant greeted their visitors this time.
A bunch of us artists meet up during market to catch up with each other and to participate in lots of talking. This group includes Genevieve Gail (standing), Shelly Comiskey, Karen Embry, Chad Barrett, Dan DiPaolo, Robin Davis, Caroline Simas, Paula Joerling, Jan Beach, and myself.
I also returned home with lots of work, so it’s back to the “drawing board”.
