Seattle Gift Show Jan 2013



A booth at the 2012 Gift Show
A clever display
I must say that I am looking forward to the January 2013 Seattle Gift Show next week.  I went to my first gift show last fall and found it fascinating and a bit overwhelming (so many booths to visit!).  I LOVED it and I learned a lot about what is currently for sale in retail stores (that was an eye-opener!!).

This time I am going with an actual purpose in mind.  I am hoping to find a few vendors/suppliers for a few of the base-supplies I want to use in making some my products (for instance, hair clips for me to decorate with all my lovely buttons!).  I've been doing a lot of research about owning a business and am now starting to work on getting my business to grow - so I'm hoping that I can make a few good connections here to help me in the future. 
More fun home decor items from the Gift Show

If you ever have the opportunity to go - I highly recommend it!! It's amazing what you can learn there!  Plus I found it to be very inspirational in my business AND my personal life (I very much wanted to buy things to decorate my house with!!). 

Maybe some day I will be able to have a booth at this gift show where I offer my products wholesale (what an exciting idea)! 

I'll be wearing a t-shirt with my company name and logo on it - if you see me there, stop me and say hello!  I'd love to chat with you!
