The High Point Market revved up on Oct. 21 with International Market Center's Kick Off Party taking Center Stage on Friday night. Co-sponsored by our sister publications, Furniture/Today and Home Accents Today, the event set the bar for a bevy of social gatherings throughout market week, Oct. 22-27. An "Ideal Outdoor" extravaganza at Padma's Plantation, sponsored by Casual Living, capped off a lively weekend that included such highlights as concerts by the B52s and Starship.
