Howdy and good morning Houston from the Gallery Furniture buying team blog – the team having been selected with a beautifully rich and diverse set of folks represented a great cross section of Gallery Furniture’s great customers. Architects, designers, home stagers, a nurse, a photographer, and more from all corners of the great Houston area have joined the Gallery Furniture expedition to the world’s largest furniture market in High Point, North Carolina.
A big thanks to Mack for sending us Gallery Furniture staffers with these wonderful customers who will be an additional set of eyes, ears, laughs, and smiles as they pick what furniture they want to see Gallery Furniture carry and provide Gallery Furniture with a customer perspective.
The team spirit was well in motion this morning with a morning text from Debbie Spurr and Nancy Burke asking if I’d like to carpool with them since they were trying to get as many people in on the team to together before the flight. I said thanks, that was very sweet, though that was not necessary- they insisted and wanted to start off with a team energy, and I said sure thing. And it turned out to be a beautiful morning commute to Bush Intercontinental Airport, a fun morning commute I will not forget.
Turns out that Debbie Spurr’s brother-in-law was the gentleman who composed and played the famous “Linus and Lucy” theme of Peanuts fame! Likewise, I got to hear from Nancy Burke about her love of teaching in the Friendswood independent school district, and they were excited to be on the trip, and were so thankful for Mack sending them, and Nancy already had been making schedules and mapping out her interests and she said, very matter of factly, that her and Debbie were here “to make Gallery Furniture customers happy and make Mack proud of us!”
Sadly, they were on the flight before mine, so as we got to the airport, we parted ways in Terminal A and I went to have a staple that I am known for, my infamous love of all things Starbucks.
I sit and await the rest of the great Gallery Furniture customers coming with us to High Point, North Carolina – all over a delicious Venti bold and a cheese Danish (and yes, I know, I need to lose weight). We are first Charlotte bound before a small hop to Raleigh, and soon the Gallery Furniture team will be hitting the ground running in High Point North Carolina with our great Gallery Furniture team.
