Individual wire baskets found in Europe were repurposed into a grouping and creatively numbered to be used for a multitude of things: in a kids’ room for toys, a mud room for shoes and books or in a kitchen for fruits and vegetables. The suggested retail on the wire rack was $259. Vendor: Maison Sud out of Mt. Pleasant, S.C., South Building
The super fun EAT sign would be perfect for a kitchen. It was repurposed from a cabinet door (door hinges are still on the other side). Vendor: Asbury Station, Cartersville, Ga., South Building
I found some fun vintage pieces to add to my wardrobe. Pair this 1950’s dress with black boots and vintage jewelry for a funky look on the night on the town. Vendor: Karen Bailey, North Building. This circa 1960′s sweater will be great with a white T-shirt and jeans. Vendor: Harry Green, North Building
Botanica from Charlotte, N.C. offers the finest in preserved botanicals as its tagline states. All the flowers and plants (sans the orchid offerings) have been preserved from real flowers and plants. They added preserved birds to beautiful fall foliage centerpieces. Prices are moderate to expensive but they had lots of sold signs on pieces. As they say, they were selling like hot cakes. Vendor: Botanica, Charlotte, N.C. Located in South Building.
Rabbits and More
Great little Europe finds including these pair of rabbits, pig and dogs. Find these at Carol’s space 746 in C4 in North Building.
* The fire marshal ceased the public “decorators” going down on Thursday while vendors were setting up. It’s safer but the vendors loved the volume and traffic they used to have on Thursday. One vendor shared that he used to sell 80% of his inventory on Thursday as it was coming off the truck. But now it is safer and more fair for the general public shopping. Share your comments.
