Good Rainy Morning to Ya!
(Ok, first off, these photos were all taken from my phone in pretty rotten lighting. Lesson learned, geeze! Real camera next time we set up, for sure!)
We had a great weekend. We developed AWESOME relationships and are working on wholesale orders! That’s the exciting thing; even though it wasn’t technically a trade show, stores that we have either loved or knew nothing about now want us, so this is going to be a busy week. 🙂 I’m going to give a little pictorial breakdown, from figuring the booth set up to loading up (we made it by an 1/8th of an inch in the van, WOAH!) to break-down.
Favorite part? Booth Design. Go figure.
And…our super duper tear-downers. 🙂
Ok, so they aren’t tearing down much. They did carry a box or two, ha!
I have to tell you; I had planned to be at the show the full two days with mom and dad. But when I left on Friday to help set up and saw the baby’s sad face staring at me out the window, my heart melted, hugely. We came home that night, and I proposed an idea to Erick…come with us! So they did! Saturday morning mom and dad left bright and early and we followed (thank goodness, because a few things were left behind…) I’ll write more on the weekend with the boys and post that this week as well. Don’t want to overload you all at once! Good pictures, though, much better than these, I promise. We had foggy mornings, which are my very favorite photo opportunities. And it didn’t disappoint.
So yep, the weekend was a success and we are *very* glad we went. And I must give a HUGE thank you to the folks at maine. & Maine Home+Design magazines. OH my word, you guys. Buy, subscribe…help support some incredible folks! I have to say that we were so touched and grateful for everyone on staff at those mags. No words can describe our thankfulness; they were kind and genuine and supportive and our little cheerleading team. It’s such a privilege to know the staff behind publications that I’ve loved to curl up with and salivate over for so long…dream come true!
AND Mary and Ken and Amy and Josh and Jo Ellen…a huge thank you to you as well! It was awesome to see friendly faces from home drop by and support us. HUGS!
Ok, the boys are leaving for the day so I’m getting ready to CLEAN this dining room and take pictures; makeover will be posted asap. Wahoo!
Done. Have a great day, y’all. 🙂
