Great Day O’the Morning!
Columbus! Such a fine town, even if you are mainly looking at it through a hotel window (and from a convention floor). After setting up the booth on Friday, I was able to sneak away for some North Market pleasure: Vietnamese food and the famous Jeni’s Ice Cream (Queen City Cayennne, Grapefruit Hyacinth, and Lavendar Berry).
Being at the TNNA summer show is an indoor excursion extraordinaire; once it powers on, as an exhibitor, you are in place, like a rock on a river bed, waiting for the wash of retailers to flow down the stream.
Booth 163 is on the southeast side of the hall in a row that is Boutique heaven. I have wonderful neighbors: White Lies Designs, Bijou Basin Ranch, Buffalo Ranch, Namaste, Noni, CookieA, Unicorn Books. There are maybe 1000 exhibitors and it is so huge that most buyer’s walking the show have a gameplan to divide and conquer it in more easily manageable chunks. I’m not sure I could be a retail warrior in this arena — it is so big that I’d reach saturation at some point and just fall over. Many people work in pairs (or more) and survey and plot to narrow it down to their personal beelines.
It is poetry in motion…
And about that WIP? s.t.i.l.l.
but it’s getting more gorgeous by the minute…
The rush continues, Day 2.
