HPMA: October High Point Market attendance off by 60%

HIGH POINT – Early estimates from the High Point Market Authority show market traffic through Monday was between 35% and 40% of what it was last fall, making turnout at the nine-day event better than expected for many exhibitors.

Taken largely from data from on-site scanners, the 35% estimate is based on attendance by individuals at market compared with October 2019. The 40% estimate is based on the number of companies here this market compared with last October, which officials said was the highest attended market in the past 12 years.

An update on attendance through Wednesday – the final day of the Oct. 13-21 event – is expected later in the week.

However, the early estimates, presented to the HPMA board on Wednesday, show what to expect overall, as those final numbers are tabulated. Many exhibitors interviewed by Furniture Today at market also said they expected attendance to end up between 15% and 50% of normal attendance.

According to data provide to the market authority, attendance from the West Coast was the lowest – as anticipated – at 25% from last year, while the Midwest and Southwest were better than expected at 34%. Attendance from the Southeast, mostly drive-in

Inside Too Faced Cosmetics Co-Founder Jerrod Blandino’s Perfectly Organized Kitchen

Jerrod Blandino, co-founder and chief creative officer of Too Faced Cosmetics, gave us a glimpse inside his home (which he shares with his husband, Too Faced co-founder and CEO, Jeremy Johnson) to show off his kitchens (yes, plural!), pantry, and beauty skincare closet.

While looking at the beautiful decor, products, and more is so much fun, the best part of the tour is that Jerrod shares all of his tips and tricks for keeping each room perfectly organized.

For instance, with a little help from his friends at Well Organized, Jerrod has transformed his main kitchen into a chef’s dream by organizing his most frequently used cooking tools and accessories in a functional and low-stress way.

Jerrod follows the same rule when it comes to his baking kitchen (some the brand’s most popular products are inpsired by Jerrod’s love of baking!). That means, all the important baking items (sugar, candy, chocolate, mixes, etc) are front and center (and labeled!).

For all of Jerrod’s great tips, watch the video above, and shop a few of his favorite products below:
