Part Madness, Part Inspiration

Sometimes I wonder why I always look forward to spending a day at Mart aka AmericasMart in Atlanta, because when it is over I am simply exhausted. However, despite the sore feet and tiredness a Day at Mart is typically a great day no matter what.

This is January Market at Mart which is one of the Big Shows with over 4,000 showrooms in the 3 large buildings. If you have never had the pleasure of experiencing a Market then it is extremely hard to explain. We have been going for over 10 years and each time find new things to check out.

While "technically" cameras are not allowed in Mart I was able to sneak in a few. *wink* 
Please excuse the poor quality - I was using my very ancient p-n-s ;)

This first one is a small sample of a few of the floors in Building 3. There are 13 floors in this building(the smallest of the 3) and here there are between 4-6 rows in each of the 4 sections. Each row has between 6 and 8 showrooms. If you do the math that is around 24+ showrooms in a section plus 4 sections that equals 96 showrooms on one floor -- and that is a small floor. It can be overwhelming((but I love it!!))

Here are the girls on our way in :)

 These are some masks Miss.B found in one of the booths.
Made us want to have a masquerade party!


This was one thing I saw that I fell in LOVE with and it wasn't even in a showroom haha
It was a display in the lobby and each side had a Peace sign made with different items. There was one with pasta, one with crayons, one with soldiers and flowers. My very favorite however was one made with Light Bright bulbs! I am totally going to do something in our house using these soon!!

I did get some great ideas for the house and am loving the colors that I seen this year and I am looking forward to sharing more on that later. 

As much as I do enjoy Mart my feet and my wallet are happy that it only comes along 4 times a year :)
All in all it was another successful day at Mart!
