We just got back from the High Point market last week. For those who don't know, High Point market is the oldest and largest furniture show in the country. It is shown twice a year--April and October. It's huge, huge, huge. Anyone and anything in furnishing business shows here.
We remember coming to the market 10 years ago and it was very busy, very hectic then. Things have changed a lot since. We've seen a lot of vendors come and go, especially the smaller ones.
It's not an easy business, making things and trying to make a living at it. That's why we are so supportive of new small vendors. They are usually people who are really passionate about what they do, and most of them throw their whole life, if not their life savings, into these ventures.
So this is why we are starting the spotlight series, where we feature new vendors that make creative, fun, exciting products that worth exploring.
The first one is Sugarboo--how cute is that name? They make hand-crafted logo products with inspirational quotes that are not cheesy like most.
Cute, isn't it? You can find a link to their catalog here.
