[2nd] Year Market Fun

October 29, 2014 § Leave a comment

October is a month of brilliant colors and beautiful sights abound. This can also be said for the High Point Furniture Market. A few of us [2nd] year students took the opportunity to visit The Market last week to absorb and learn from the world’s largest furniture trade show. We saw, sat, tweeted, followed, connected, touched, envied, and learned so much while there just one day. As many know, you could spend a week at The Market and still not have time to experience everything there is to offer, including a selfie with a rhino contest! So, our day was up far too soon, but we had fun!
