Spring Market is chock full of parties and events. And our goal is to direct you to the best happenings—you know, the ones with the best food, music, and themes!
Or, even better, the ones where you will rub elbows with the coolest people and hottest new products in the industry. Because what's another glass of champagne unless it is enjoyed in the company of good people and beautiful things!
It all starts at The Point on Friday, April 5th.
11:30AM - 2:00PM: PARSON’S TABLE POP-UP @ THE POINT. GOOD FOOD, GOOD FOLKS, GOOD CAUSE
If you want to be a true Market Insider, you need to get familiar with the Parson’s Table, because few things roll everything that’s so lovely, local, and quirky about the city of High Point into a single experience better than this Market institution. Volunteer cooks and bakers have prepared homemade lunch fare and served it out of the First United Methodist Church basement at 512 N. Main St. for the duration of every spring and fall Market week since 1978. But on Friday the 5th, these volunteer angels are bringing the Table to the Point, and we are beyond excited. It’s like a church picnic and bake sale all in one place. If you truly want a taste of High Point, don’t pass this up! (A “pimennah” cheese sandwich, sweet tea, and a slice of pecan pie? Yes please! Er, um, that is to say yes please Ma’am.)
12:00 - 4:00pm: Steelyard Designer’s Welcome Reception @ The Point
Stop by to learn about the hottest showrooms for designer finds, those hidden treasures only a few insiders know how to access (like the local-secret Parsons Table we just told you about!) . And get our approaching-famous swag bag complete with the exclusive Steelyard & HPMKT nail polish colors for Spring 2019!
2:00 - 3:00pm: STEELYARD ROUNDTABLE: DESIGNER FRIENDLY TIPS, TRICKS & TOOLS FOR HIGH POINT MARKET
Join Christi Barbour of Barbour Spangle Design, Vicky Serany of Southern Studio Interior Design, and Bria Hammel of Bria Hammel Interiors as they share their expertise on the higher-level Market experiences that you won’t find by reading a map or wandering IHFC. Learn how to find those hidden gems others often miss, where to find the influencers and thought leaders, how to understand and conquer the eight essential neighborhoods, and how to find vendors who will keep you profitable and protect your business. No matter how many times you’ve been to Market, it continues to evolve—there’s always something new!
3:00 - 4:00pm: THE STEELYARD TROLLEY ROLLS IN
Be on hand as a special team decks out our new mobile lounge/designer transport. We’ll be outfitting the trolley in style with chic décor from select High Point showrooms. More on the Trolley coming soon!
4:00 - 6:00pm: Theodore Alexander’s Alexa Hampton Launch Party
Are you ready for this? Are you standing on the edge of your (trolley) seat?
The Steelyard Trolley will be departing the Point at 4PM for Theodore Alexander’s new Alexa Hampton Collection launch party, which promises to be one of the most memorable events at Spring Market. More details to follow, but suffice to say Arch Digest is the media sponsor, Alexa will be there, yes, there will be a signature Steelyard/Theodore Alexander/Alexa Hampton nail polish color!
