and found some GREAT stuff. Yippee. The only bummer is that we totally decided to go on the wrong day (we went on the last day hoping to get some great specials and have less traffic) since by noon, all the retailers were closing shop early. But we still found the most amazing upholstery line (Nathan Anthony -- bummer that I can't show pictures of them yet -- they can interchange nailheads to crystals to add pizazz and have fully organic lines -- including mattresses. And talk about cozy -- some of the best fabrics I have every felt), children's furniture (alligator enterprise and relics furniture were my favorites) and shabby chic companies (check out the pillows by skout -- they are made from old military blankets, gunny sacks, etc. The also have amazing furniture lines). We are just lacking in the Tuscan style category but that's okay -- it gives us another excuse to venture to LA for their market in March.
So here are just some quick peeks of stuff that we LOVED -- and believe you me this is just a minuscule peek since most of the items that we saw and the companies that we found have to still send us their pictures and update their websites for their new lines. Most of the pictures does not even do the items justice.
