The pictures below are some I recently took during my trip to market in Atlanta. This was my first visit there as I usually go to Dallas (it's so much closer). However, a fellow retailer at the last Dallas market told me that I just HAD to see AmericasMart in Atlanta. I still might not have ventured that far away if it weren't for two things: 1) I had no one to cover the store during the Dallas show, and 2) I was able to get a great deal on airfare. So off to Atlanta I went.
|I had a great time the rest of that first day. I slowly perused all the wonderful items in the showrooms; noting as I did that the prices were a little steep. I checked out luxurious linens, sumptuous lotions and to die for furniture pieces. There was fabulous chandeliers, beautiful pottery and glassware, darling home decor, artwork, etc. I finished my first floor around 2:00 pm and had lunch, then began to check out the next floor. I was starting to see the same things I had seen before, but at different prices. Was that more or less than the last place? I decided I better start taking notes. Long story short - by the end of the first day I had seen one and a half floors. I had learned from looking at my map that AmericasMart consists of three buildings, two of which have over 20 floors! I was going to have to step it up the next day.|
