We have had many people ask us to have a presence on Pinterest and we are now on it! Be use to click on the link below and see our bulletin boards of great floral arrangements, Evening of Design events, holiday decor, and even some of my floorcloths (if you have trouble connecting search for us under EvelynsJewelry). Hope you enjoy! I will add to it often so keep checking back.

We are back from the 2012 Winter Market in Atlanta & had a wonderful buying trip. This was a very busy & crowded market that gives me the impression that the businesses had good 4th quarter seasons and ready to showcase a lot of great new product.
One of the highlights of the market for us was attending a seminar by Mary McDonald and Nathan Turner from Bravo's Million Dollar Decorators. They gave a insightful and humorous seminar on what inspires them when they are designing beautiful living spaces.
The main focus on this market for us was Christmas, Fall, & Halloween 2012. You are going to love all the wonderful collections we will be showcasing at our Fall and Christmas Open Houses.
We didn't forget about Spring. Many of our spring collections were bought in July 2011 and are arriving daily. But we did fill in on a lot of the new colors & themes that were so popular at market. Butterflies were everywhere and on everything from ceramics to scarves & jewelry.
Colors this spring are going to blues, lavenders, and tangerines. Neutrals in grays, blacks,and khakis are also very popular.
We also don't want to forget about the bright pinks, greens, and blues we will showcase with our new Lily Pulitzer collections arriving soon.
We are busy planning our Spring & Easter Open House. Our shop will be filled with wonderful collections that will inspire you to add to your home. Our Spring & Easter Open House will be Saturday, February 25. Be sure to put this date on your calendar & join us for our famous peach bellinis!
We hope to see you in the shop soon.

It's hard to believe that we will soon be off to market again. Every January & July we head to this country's largest market, Americasmart, in Atlanta to be the very best in gifts & decor. This market in Atlanta provides us with everything we could possibly want to see & find. And, we are excited to see how some of our favorite showrooms have remodeled. We gain such wonderful inspiration from our vendors that we will bring back to the shop. And it provides us with the perfect opportunity to talk with other retailers & pick up some great ideas from them.
Although we bought the majority of Easter & Spring in July, we will still be looking for great fill-ins to brighten up the shop.
The majority of our buying will be Fall, Halloween, and Christmas. Yes, we buy these holidays in January to ensure we will get the product we want to showcase in the shop. The majority of these items will be sold out by the time we return to market in July. I have already planned all the themes for our Christmas trees & decor of the shop. It is sure to be one of our best ever!
I'm really excited about going to a seminar with 2 of Bravo's Million Dollar Decorators, Nathan Turner and Mary McDonald. They will be discussing interiors, entertaining, & party planning. It should be great!
We will be closed Friday, January 13th, through Monday, January 16th. We will be back on Tuesday, January 17th and will let you know about all the wonderful things we find.
