Highlights from High Point, NC!

Historic landmark in High Point; isn't it awesome!
Jump in the car and drive 13 hours to the High Point Market in North Carolina? Why not! That's just what Georgia's did arriving 15 minutes before the opening of Blue Ocean Trader's Gypsy Market. We had no idea what to expect, but two great ladies we met in line, Kelsey and Lauren, kindly explained the buying process to us. Take a look at what these two are up to at www.shopgreenroost.com and greenroostva.blogspot.com. Thank you Kelsey and Lauren; your help was invaluable! After doing some antiquing in outlying areas, we hit the ground running at the market. Our favorite venue was the Antique and Design Center of High Point where we hand selected a few items for Georgia's inventory. We had a great time talking to Denise Eckert and Stephanie Freitas of The Barn on Sweetwood about repurposing. They do a wonderful job with this and you can follow them at thebarnonsweetwood.blogspot.com. Overall, the market was well organized and the hospitality outstanding; we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the showrooms and meeting the vendors. Take a look at some of Georgia's finds!        
Cabinets made from reclaimed wood and hardware - great for spice cabinets!
Vintage sleds!
Late 1800's pumpkin cart with original green paint - love it!
Wrought iron coffee table with antique French fretwork - gorgeous!
