High Pt. Market (Sunday)

Written by Rachel L. Ritter

This was the most productive and busy Sunday (4/21/13) I’ve had in a long time!   There was more trips up and down Commerce and Main Street and tons of booths to visit.  This is just a couple of them I thankfully got to stop by and enjoy.  I thought my head would explode with all the gorgeous sights, fashion and people 🙂

Cool people I got to meet:

Abigail Weiland from Design Inside

Jennifer Jones from Midwest Associates- she, her mom and sister were all wearing the most beautiful gold jewelry that Jennifer makes.

Traci Zeller had a launch party at Younger and it was the cutest thing ever.  She was showcasing her fabric line that she started with the help of Trellis Designs.  It was very inspirational to be a part of launch and to see the designs in real life.  I loved her theme for the launch, it was “Cupcakes & Champagne” and the drinks had pink rock candy in them, so sweet.  They had the yummiest cookie favors and unfortunately I didn’t get to try the cupcakes but they also looked delicious.  I can’t wait to see where the future takes Traci, she has a bright future ahead of her.

Four Hands was one of my absolute favorites.  All the furniture was amazingly beautiful

but what really got me was the visual merchandising, it was so creative and different!

Running back and forth to different buildings really works up an appetite. and thankfully Four Hands had an awesome free lunch for everyone in the showroom.  It was catered by Diamondback Grill and the food was amazing as well!  And… finally there was Monday, see all the running around I did then 🙂
