A wise customer told me for every one day away from work it takes two days to catch up. I have been home from the New York Home & Gift show a week ago Tuesday evening and I'm still not feeling on top of my game. The show was huge, hard work, fun, inspiring and exhausting. I will be sure to post pictures of products purchased at the show as they arrive. For now I have been preparing to launch the web site, working on newsprint ads, recreating the HiHo lady logo and sketching new signage for the parking lot side of the building. I also have been lining up vendors/dealers for our upcoming tent event. I'm planning a booth for the event that will benefit Gardiner's animal rescue along with working on a press release. Like so many of the woman in my life, often I feel like a one man band. Balancing family,a home,community involvement and work, this shot of Ellen says it all. I will continue my attempt to catch up, however sometimes the shop sets a pace of it's own and I'm just along for the ride. It's an exciting time of year as the seasons change along with the HiHo displays.
HiHo Home Market and Antique Center is a brick and mortar shop in Gardiner, NY, a home store with a mix of old and new merchandise that is continually evolving. We are a short country drive from almost anywhere in the beautiful Hudson Valley. This blog is where I will share my inspirations, seasonal changes, favorite haunts, special events and promotions. It is my hope that by keeping a diary of life here at HiHo, you will share in our energy and excitement for creating beautiful living spaces, and be inspired to create your own beautiful spaces at home!
