It is hard to believe that another year is coming to a close! 2014 proved to be another very busy year for the Southern Accents team. We started the year with a home town salvage mission as we rescued architectural elements from the historical Hays House. The demolition dust had barely cleared the air and we hit the road and headed north on an antiquing trip to Philly. This trip was the first of two buying trips up north, the second taking place in September.
April saw us head south to Greenville, Alabama for another salvage mission as we rescued more architectural elements from an 1890’s house scheduled for demolition. The month of May came quickly as we prepared for Southern Makers 2014. This highly successful event will be expanding in 2015 to two days, May 2nd & 3rd.
June was an exciting time as we designed and built staging for NASA On The Square! We also traveled to Atlanta for the Haven Bloggers Conference. Summer quickly turned to fall and we loaded the truck and headed south once again, this time to Chapel Market in Pike Road, Alabama.
As the year began to wind down, Southern Accents traveled to New York in November to attend the BizBash Event Style Awards. We were honored to represent Southern Makers winning a prestigious award for event decor. We also attended the BBB luncheon in Huntsville as Southern Accents was a BBB Torch Award finalist.
Looking ahead to 2015 there are quite a few exciting events on the horizon, many we will be sharing with you in the coming weeks! Thank you for following along with us as we continue our mission of rescuing, restoring, and protecting architectural elements of historical significance. We are looking forward to 2015 and what we expect to be our best and most exciting year ever!!
