"Our staff worked diligently to create a clean, healthy, and fun shopping environment," says Marburger's Ashley Ferguson.

Sales were very strong across the board, with several dealers reporting record sales on opening day that surpassed previous five-day show records." Liz Lambert, founder of Bunkhouse and principal of Lambert McGuire Design and pal Bobby Johns were spotted buying art for their Hotel Saint Vincent project in New Orleans. Designers Todd Romano, Aaron Rambo, Meg Lonergan, Lindsey Herod, Renea Abbott and Kristen Nix were also seen sprinkling sold stickers on coveted items through the tents. "Overall, there was an incredible sense of gratitude," Ferguson says. "We were so grateful for the shoppers that supported our dealers and the Round Top community." OPENING DAZE ...
