About Us
The Antique & Design Center of High Point is a gathering of  70+ of the country's most talented and creative antiques dealers every Spring and Fall at High Point Market.  Founded in 2010, we have been bringing the soul to High Point Market for the last 12 years!

We are located on the Ground level of Historic Market Square with parking and a private entrance at

316 W Commerce Ave, High Point NC 27260

We love creating a place for interior designers, architects, and shop owners to connect with the best antique & modern dealers, original art dealers, vintage jewelry dealers, and artisans.  We know that the collaboration between these talented groups of people will lead to gorgeous design projects worthy of the covers of shelter magazines everywhere, but more importantly,  spaces and homes that will become sanctuaries for the people that live, work and play in them!

Designing the Graduate Hotels - Discussion and Book-Signing with Head of Creative, Adventurous Journeys (AJ) Capital Partners, Ernest Wlostowski, and head designer, Krissy Melendez

Graduate Hotels is a collection of meticulously hand-crafted hotels in university towns, designed to evoke the nostalgia of the glory days, sleepless nights, and the spirited, beautiful memories of one’s college years. Rooted in storytelling, each Graduate Hotels property serves as the backdrop for some of life’s most meaningful moments. Ernest and Krissy will discuss the process of distinctly designing each property to create an immersive and informative experience that brings each destination to life through a contrast of bold and subtle elements that capture both the destination and the college experience in full. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
