3 pm   “Mayberry Modernism” Presentation

Location: Show floor in the 1950’s Living Room 

George Smart, President of North Carolina Modernist Houses presents “Mayberry Modernism”. Mr. Smart will share the story of how North Carolina became the third largest concentration of Modernist houses in America and how North Carolina hosts the largest website in the world for residential Modernist architecture. Some of the most loved, hated, and controversial buildings in the world! During this entertaining and informative visual journey, audiences delight in learning why these “livable works of art” are often endangered and discovering how everyone can help save mid-century houses for future generations.

5-7 pm   Glamper Showcase 

Raleigh’s first vintage trailer tour. Come meet the owners, admire the truly inspired decorating and hear stories of their adventures. The camp lights will be glowing and campfires going. The Glamper Showcase will feature all different makes, models and sizes of these mobile houses. Glamping (glamorous + camping) has become popular in the last several years through the growth of groups like Sisters on the Fly and Girl Camper. However, they are not just for camping anymore. Some of these beauties have a permanent home in backyards and are used as “she-sheds” and guest quarters. Some are even available to rent for your next party.
