The start of the year is always very quiet for me. Usually, this is time when I take stock of things, plan what shows to do for the year and other administrative tasks that are essential to the business.
This year however, I had the opportunity to participate in a show organized by the wonderful folks of Pot and Box at no less than the iconic Fisher Building.
The Fisher Building which was designed in an Art Deco style was completed in 1928 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989. How could I pass up the chance to be in such a prestigious building?
I have to admit I was a bit worried because the weekend of the show was also the weekend when we were hit with another winter storm.
But storm or not, we were all there bright and early to welcome the crowd that came through those Art Deco doors.
After I finished setting up, I went for a look around and was blown away by the talent shown by the wonderful participating vendors.
Immediately, i was wowed by Project Projections, who laser cuts these beautiful shadow lamps. I loved it so much, I took home his constellation lamp!
Then there was Owen and Abbey with their simple yet beautifully crafted home furnishings and tables made from wood salvaged from abandoned homes in Detroit, Pontiac and other urban areas. Their work is proof that beauty can be found and made everywhere.
I really liked the aesthetics of Corbé
with its smooth handmade curves and a color palette designed to go with everything.
And I loved meeting Corliss from The Lowry Estate. She had funky vintage pieces at prices that won’t break the bank. Just check out the coat she had.
All in all a fantastic show!
