Shop Till' We Dropped!

I just got back from a retail order writing show in Atlanta, Georgia.  Connie, from Aesthetics in Crystal Lake, joined me for this intense show!  Imagine 3 buildings, 20 floors in each building packed with tons of product to choose from!!  This is a picture of one of the buildings it was actually the smallest of the three buildings!!


Can you believe I was focusing on items for Christmas...ALREADY!!  I ordered some beautiful items and know that Christmas 2011 won't disappoint!!


Distressed, pillows, chairs, and totes were definitely a trend!


The chair above and these pillows were really neat display props!  I loved the straw!





This reminds me of my holiday window!!  Love the paper dress!!


I loved these linens and the twig canopy!!


 There were soooo many jewelry and accessory vendors at the show!  I loved this booth!




We ordered/shopped for 44 hours in four days! Connie and I were on a mission...no stopping for breakfast or lunch! We joked that we lived off popcorn and margaritas for those four days...it seemed like every showroom was offering these and we couldn't pass them up!! Here we are at the end of our third day!


We felt like her...


I'll be getting in tons of new merchandise so be sure to stop by!!
