over and out



hi again everyone! well the show’s officially over. what a grueling 10 days! shows are so intense. anyway i wanted to upload a few more pics of the show cause i have a feeling tomorrow will bring something completely new and these will seem foreign and far away. i promise to link the sites but i have so much info and literature that doing it all tonite is too much for lil ol me. i’ll do what i can…

the booth below was incredible. design legacy



i always loved the script on fabric. carolyn quartermaine does a gorgeous line. i hope to be carrying it by the yard soon.

    hey guys! the show really is a great way to see a different side of the market. this show has so much to offer anyone with a business including bloggers with online biz! some of the companies have minimums but it’s a good way to affiliate your shop with ones you admire and want to promote. i haven’t even touched the surface with these pics!

  6. lora replied:

    I’m absolutely swooning for the antique script fabric/curtains and the coral wallpaper/pillows! What a wonderful show. Wish there was one as fantastical here. How thrilling to have been a part of it.
