Furniture Market in the Hot Pocket (Spring 2011)

10 Apr

Hello out there! I know it has been ages since my last post! Don’t hate! I have been busy with all sorts of goodies such as a business course for the wedding industry, my typography class for the graphic and web design certificate, work, beer (his friend wine has taken some of my time lately too), friends, DB5 shows, brainstorming Restore projects and kickball to name a few…Everything is going great in fact..just very busy and the blog takes backseat. I do not have an online class this summer so I plan to get back on track if you can bare with me (you as in the 2 people that read my blog, haha…I love you guys!).

I wanted to share some pretties from the HP (or hot pocket to the locals..hmmm hot pockets) Furniture Market my work visited earlier this week. I will be honest. Nothing was fantastic for me. It was basically the same things from the Fall and they were not giving away half as many totes (haha..I kid). Times are tight! It was a nice break from the ordinary though and we got some ideas and new vendors for current projects.

My class has assigned us to take photos of fonts/typography we like when out and about. I have added a few here that were noteworthy.

Peace out playas!

I liked this font...swanky is the word that comes to mind

I liked the turquoise and light green color combo..potentials for the guest room!

nice, clean font..great vendor too!

Take note of the blue stand...I think it was burlap painted and pasted somehow..very cool technique.

Open Wide...look to the top!

Yes ma'am...we're gonna need a bigger boat! Really want to get this for my husband.
