The thrill of the market season is upon me as I land in the Hong Kong airport the evening before the start of the Hong Kong Gift fair. It has been 21 hours since my plane left Tulsa. Each fair season I get very excited to find new and interesting products and allow my creativity free reign as I look for the next great trends for home décor. This trip I am focusing on spring color for our January introductions; vivid and vibrant colors in wall décor, glass and ceramic accents, accent furniture and planters.
After the long trip to Hong Kong the hotel is a welcome sight. A hot shower, good night’s sleep and quick cup of coffee have me ready to go! Hong Kong is a beautiful city to explore and I only wish I had more time to visit. With only one day planned at the show, we have a lot of ground to cover. With my companion buyers, I board the shuttle bus to the fair with my notebook and camera.
