Best in Show -Houston Nutcracker



It’s early in my Houston hotel room as I write this morning. I hadn’t plan to post until our return home next week, but the excitement has gotten the best of me and I couldn’t wait to tell you that we were one of 3 booths (out of almost 350 vendors) awarded Best in Show!! Just being selected to participate in the amazing Nutcracker show was a tremendous honor, but recieving this award on our first year was a sweet surprise for all of us. We won under the category “most creative booth” and received this award on Thursday morning. On Friday morning I did a spot on Channel 11 morning news program in Houston (CBS news) about our store and experience at the market! How cool is that?


I will share lots more about the show and our experience next week. But this exciting news just couldn’t wait!

I'm couldn't be happy for you! You and your outstanding crew are so deserving of this honor. Hopefully you can catch your breath soon (i'm really doubting that!)
A big hello to Willie too.

Your presentation was outstanding! Wonderful products. Took home a few. Your crew was smiling and helpful at the busy Nutcracker Market. It was my first visit to market and your space. Definately a must visit. Will visit you on your website as well.
Wonderfully done!

I've been attending the nutcracker for 10 years and have never been so excited about a booth. My daughter loved the trees I bought for her living room and I love all the things I got for my dining table. I've been on your webpage at least a dozen times since we visited and cant wait for you to list more things. Thank you for coming to Houston!

There is only one word that can adequately describe your booth, GORGEOUS!!!

No matter where we went in Nutcracker, we always seemed to end up back at your booth. I must have gone through your line a dozen times! Loved it!

I am so proud of you and to call you my friend. All of your hard work is paying off and I know that 2009 is going to be a huge year for you. Ron and I are looking for just the right spot in Dallas.

Much Love,

I've never been to Canton, but we are planning a special trip just to visit you next week. Your booth was so wonderful at Nutcracker, I just can't stop thinking about it and I simply must have two of those wonderful decanters. Should have gotten it while we were there!

No surprise there! Each time I see the shop or your space in the Arbor I am always blown away by the beauty of the displays and all that creativity. Hopefully Black Friday will be good to you too! : D
