Sunday Funday at Market
If it’s Sunday, it’s Funday at AmericasMart!
What happens when REstyleSOURCE hand-selects a group of fun-loving, design-oriented showrooms to host a series of mini-mixers, complete with exclusive shopping offers and prizes, on Sunday morning at market?…We call that ‘Sunday Funday,’ and it was a huge success at AmericasMart Atlanta‘s 2016 winter market!
Sunday Funday took over an entire floor of AmericasMart’s Building 1, with participating showrooms hosting various brunch-themed events, including a bloody Mary bar at Gold Leaf Design Group, Sunday Sangrias at Emporium Home, treats and tote bag giveaway at Michaelian Home, and winter punch and special discounts at Ro Sham Beaux. Hillhouse Naturals celebrated with a floral theme in honor of their new Field + Fleur line, Fortunata offered mimosas and a meet & greet styling session with designer Phillip Sides, while Jamie Dietrich served breakfast pastries and gave out exclusive JD-designed seashell bottles. With two of our favorite Pantone designers and stylemakers–Michael Habachy and Heather Hogan Roberts–in attendance, it was the perfect party! Every order placed during Sunday Funday also earned the purchaser one raffle ticket towards the two amazing prizes that were later given away, a Lo Forti framed print and a Mitchell Black framed print.
Thanks to everyone who participated, our very first Sunday Funday event was a huge success…and we have an even bigger & better event planned for July, combining showrooms from two floors with live music, expanded video coverage, custom graphics & signage for participants, inclusion in the Style Guide, fabulous giveaways and more! We can’t wait to see you there at AmericasMart Atlanta for the July 2016 market…Relive some of January’s highlights with our video wrap-up below!

“It was a fun filled day full of hustle and bustle! The showrooms were busy, and the people who came loved the giveaways and the hospitality shown by our participating vendors.”
– Kristin Alber, REstyleSOURCE
“I was kidding with one of the consultants here, saying ‘Did you actually go down to the church to pull the people out of the pews to get them here so early?’ I’ve never seen so much traffic [on a Sunday].”
– Vincent Galasso, Lo Forti Fine Prints
Sweet Treats & Surprises
The REstyleSOURCE team had two decorated barcarts loaded up with goodies and roamed the floor, stationing themselves outside each participating showroom at regular intervals. Treats were served up–sweet tarts and individual bags of cotton candy…in Pantone-perfect colors, of course!–and special gifts like cute white cups from Hester & Cook, pencils from Karen Adams, and the cutest gold-stamped ‘Hello Gorgeous’ notebooks from My Mind’s Eye were all crowd-pleasers.
When the Pantone Colors of the Year are Rose Quartz and Serenity, you know your candy dish has got to represent accordingly. We think our sweet treats were Pantone perfection!
“Sunday Funday was great! Most importantly, we saw new customers…The online [REstyleSOURCE] presence is excellent, that really creates an additional excitement.”
