On February 9th Mike and I drove to the ever so fabulous Las Vegas for the Las Vegas Furniture Market. My mom flew in from Salt Lake to meet us there for three days of walking, networking, and a little fun. The Market is comprised of three, inter-connected buildings totaling 5 million square feet!! We saw about 25 % of it. With floor after floor of furniture and accessories it is quite a sight to behold. For an interior designer it is just as good, if not a little better than Disneyland.
The drive to Las Vegas for us is only about 2 hours. We stayed in the Excalibur hotel and weren't necessarily happy with it. It is old and slightly stinky. But for $60 a night I guess I can't complain... not to mention, who goes to Vegas to sit in the room anyways.
We made a lot of really great contacts and got set up to sell their furniture and accessories. If you are ever going to buy furniture CALL ME first!!! Most of the time I can get it at a better price. :)
