Shop the Show recap: Ashley Rose



This summer, we invited five top designers and lifestyle influencers to join us for season three of our popular Shop the Show program, each creating a curated collection of their favorite market picks in the process! Our tastemakers immersed themselves in everything AmericasMart had to offer, scouting out the season’s hottest home décor, gift, tabletop, and seasonal merchandise, and sharing all their favorite moments through social media, videos, workshops and live pop-up events. We recently caught up with Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, a lifestyle destination for all things DIY, entertaining, home décor and travel, for her thoughts on the Atlanta Market experience. As part of this summer’s group of Shop the Show influencers, Ashley spotted many of the freshest trends for 2019 and beyond, and had tons of fun takeaways to share!

Double Up: Having a market buddy to walk the showrooms with is more fun, but it’s also great to have someone to bounce ideas off of!
Make a Game Plan: Do your research beforehand on which showrooms are absolute musts
Take a Break: Always go to a Starbucks far away from the one in the AmericasMart building if you don't want to wait an hour for coffee, haha!


Thanks for reading all the market finds, tips & takeaways from our talented group of Shop the Show tastemakers, we’ll see you next season!
