Getting Ready for Las Vegas

On May 28th we leave for Las Vegas to participate in the ACRE (American Craft RetailersExpo) show. It is a for-the -trade only show. This is the third year for the show, and we have been there each year. So we sort of know our way around, have favorite places to go, to see.

Preparing for a show takes aot of work from both of us. I make lists of everything we make, make price cards for them, make sure all our office stuff is in the backback, the cords to charge the phones, the camera,lots of essential little things. Bill makes sure we have every sample, packs them up in the van. We get the van washed, get the oil changed, plan our itenerary, make hotel reservaations. Whew! I am going to be busy.
