Adventure In The Antique World Market Is Not My Forte!

Adventure in the Antique Market World is not my forte! Why? Too many design elements displayed in hundreds or thousand of market spaces. Being in the environment makes my head spin, ADD kicks in a high speed, and creative juice goes haywire.

I took a deep breath with a commitment to experience the unwanted and not so interested environment, Antique Market. I pledged with an open heart to take up on the adventure and signed up the Antiques Diva Happy Hour Tour of The Antique & Design Center at the World Largest Furniture Market in High Point, North Carolina.

My dear friend, Toma Clark Haines, is the CEO of The Antiques Diva & Co – Europe’s largest Antiques Sourcing & Touring Company. Toma is originally from Oklahoma and happily displayed herself on the amazing african bed made out of one solid wood.












I survived on the tour for an hour and a half and could have stayed longer but had to leave to attend another event.  Jeffrey did it with a big smile. Great tour, I must say and thanks to Toma for the invite.  Check out her website for custom planned Antique Buying Tours for tourists and trade professionals:

Traditional Home Napa Valley Showhouse – Napa, California 

Stay tuned for the next blog post, Traditional Home Napa Valley Showhouse – Randall Street Revival.

I look forward heading out to Napa November 12-15 and support several designer friends designed several rooms for Randall Street Revival showhouse.   It is the last weekend for the Traditional Home Showhouse.  Here is the link if you wish to see the homes,

Take care!
