High Point Merchandise Mart

This past week, Gail and I went to High Point NC for the April 2011 Furniture Mart. It was almost to the day, 60 years ago, I left High Point as a 9 month old baby. It was quite an adventure to see the small town and get a feeling for the "home accent" industry. We were both exhausted by the 7 AM to 7 PM schedule but the results were exciting. We met many many designers, connected with other artists, and had more information leaving than we could assimilate. The work showed wonderfully. Here are a few shots of the booth just at show time...

I will be working on commissions, shipping pieces sold and contacting the designers, business owners, and company reps I met for several days running.
