The article highlights the High Point Furniture Market that was held in High Point, North Carolina in October 2006. Some bedroom makers said commitments and orders were tougher to come by this market because of container loads already clogging retailers' warehouses. Traffic was a significant concern after the official opening day of this first Monday-through-Sunday High Point Market, however, as the show wound down, exhibitors said business was not so bad at all.
