Everything about the Nutcracker show was phenomenal! Thursday was our best selling day ever.......I mean since we've been in business "ever"!! Just off the charts amazing!!
We worked into the late hours creating our booth and the hard work payed off! For the second year in a row we were one of three booths out of 350 plus vendors awarded the Best in Show title.
Adding to the excitement of the award and the outstanding sales, I had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people, two of which were Ed Fulkerson and Michael Breddin of Leftover's Antiques. This was their first year at the show. We talked shop for awhile and I must say they are the nicest guys and so talented! They were among the three of us awarded "Best in Show"! Congrats to them! I'm thankful to have finally met these Texas gems!
We also recieved a visit from Karen McCord, Cheryl Lehane and Deela Roe of Zapp Hall as well as Jackie Sharbrough of the Urban Market. What delightful ladies! Actually, we had lots of friendly visits from several show promoters....so it looks like we may be adding some new things to our calendar ....2010 will be eventful for us. We're extremely excited about the opportunities that await us in the coming year!
Now, it's time to unload the trucks and trailers and get things hopping for the next First Monday show. I plan to get back into full blogging swing as my schedule loosens a bit from the rigorous Holiday show schedule!
Thanks so much for your continued support....you are the very reason we do this and why we've not only rocked right on through this flawed economy, but are actually thriving in spite of it!
