Just got back from another successful and very enjoyable Atlanta market. It’s such a pleasure to connect and reconnect with so many great people. We sold a bunch of candles, which is super awesome, and also got the chance to spend time with some talented, interesting, and downright hilarious people. A big part of the trade show experience, at least for me, is telling my story, hearing the stories of others, learning, teaching, sharing and working to build lasting, meaningful relationships. With that kind of perspective (and some really comfortable shoes), it’s hard not to have a great show. Two of my favorite new friends are fellow exhibitors Carly of Bison Bookbinding & Letterpress, and Joellyn of Improper Greetings. Exceptional people with exceptional talent. We share some of the same wonderful regional reps and i couldn’t be in better company. I also really enjoyed talking to our new stockists about their unique stores, towns and customers. I always tell them- when I’m in the area I’ll stop by, and i mean it. Below are just a few pics from the show. Looking forward to the next one, which just so happens to be in our home town, so see you at NY NOW!
