This is the time of year I both dread and love.
Winter trade show season.
Why do I dread it?
1) Travel, in the winter can often be so unpredictable...ugh
2) Time away from family.
3) I'm always a little unsure of how our customers will respond to our new collections.
4)Missing local friends.
Why do I love it?
1) I love to travel and see new things.
2) Time away from family
3) Seeing how retailers respond to my new collections.
4)Meeting new and seeing old friends at shows.
I put the last minute touches on the new booth fabric and rushed around with the final details....phew I think I'm ready. Now, I'm actually excited about the shows. This year I'm attending the SFIGF after not being there for almost 9 years. So trade show season came a little earlier than usual.
What do you dread and love all in the same moment?
