We hit the road at 6am ready for a big week of finding new gift and home decor items for Winston’s Gift Shop! There was quite a bit of traffic that delayed us some but we managed to get to our hotel to drop off the car, just in time for the 10am shuttle to AmericasMart. We were pre-registered so checking in and getting our badges was a breeze once we got there!
We spent the day in Building 2 and started in the Demdaco showroom. We found so many neat items here! Adorable children’s pillowcases, Embellish your story magnets & frames, Lighted galvanized metal frames, Art Hearts, super sweet coasters and tea towels and so much more! We were in this showroom probably 2 hours! 🙂
Next stop was Market Club for lunch before our 1pm appointment with Coton Colors where we ordered new glass ornaments shipping this summer! Love the tervis tumbler they gave us!
Next on the agenda was our appointment with Mud Pie! They have recently moved to a new showroom and increased their space to 11,000 square feet! WOW! We found lots of cute items here too including lake themed decor, bride and bridesmaid tote bags and so much more! Can’t wait to show you!
Last stop of the day was with C.R. Gibson where we found super cute notepads, recipe cards and thank you notes! Oh and (I) Jennifer did accidentally spill my afternoon coffee on one of the displays! Oh dear – Clean up on aisle 7! I think that meant it was time to call it a day! We caught the shuttle back to the hotel and now we are resting up and recharging for day 2!
