This weekend my aunt and her business partner, Cherie, let my friend Lane and I tag along with them to Atlanta to go to the annual Gift Market. I don't think I've been so excited about much else in my life. It has been a dream of mine for so long to go to market and it didn't disappoint. I have never seen so much furniture, gift, housewares, accessories, clothing and just STUFF in one place - - three sky scrapers full! To my husband's delight since you had to have a business license to purchase anything, ALL I COULD DO WAS LOOK. Pure torture.
I was so excited for the first day and a half that I didn't even think to get out my phone to take pictures. I took some below of a few show rooms but these pictures don't do the spaces justice nor do they give you any idea of the amount of goods there were.
Even though we were just on lookers, it really gave you an idea of how exhausting and overwhelming market can be. It gave me a new found respect for my aunt and Cherie and what they have to go through. That said, there's already talk of a trip to New York in July and if I get the chance to go, I would jump at it!
