They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas... but when Shannon, Marianne and Jen take to Vegas they bring plenty of good stuff home! We spent the week scouring the Las Vegas Market for just the right products and fixtures to make the new Quilter's Mercantile at Corn Wagon Too come to life. Sure, we're regulars at quilt market. As you can imagine, it can be as overwhelming as it is inspiring to be inundated with all the latest quilting goodness but the Las Vegas Market was a new adventure for us. Three huge buildings, each with sixteen floors full of the newest designs in home furnishings and gifts. Talk about overwhelming. We three gals were obvious beginners but gosh did we have fun. You're going to love what we found! Of course we had our eyes out for some sewing inspired items. We found cute button coasters, giant scissors to hang on the wall, and creative ways to use vintage spools. Repurposed Kantha quilts made in India were a huge trend across the market. The hand-stitched beauty of each unique piece won us over in a big way. Clever wit could be found in everyday items such as socks, notebooks, cards and bags and you know how we like a good laugh. Speaking of laughs, we found more than a few flamingos for Marsha. She'll be thrilled! We hoped to find a few items to represent our be-UTAH-ful state as well as some sources for Utah made goods and we didn't come up short. We even found a few things for the guys. After all, those husbands who wait patiently while we browse the quilt shop certainly deserve a treat! We came home with a solid vision of what you'll see when you walk into our new Quilter's Mercantile - - a charming retail space dedicated to sewing related gifts, unique home goods, seasonal items, useful notions and some treats with Utah flavor. You'll feel like you've stepped into an old general store but the goods inside will be far from dated. And when will all this come together? Our Quilter's Merc. opening day will take place November 2nd during Corn Wagon Quilt Co.'s 20th birthday celebration!
...but we know the question you're all really dying to ask... did we encounter the Vegas grasshopper invasion of 2019? The only grasshopper scare we had was in the furniture department. Any takers on this BIG FAT GRASSHOPPER PILLOW?
