January 2014, Las Vegas Gift Show
The Las Vegas Gift Show in January of 2014 was successful and worth the trip. My right hand employee, Pat, and I spent three days scoping out new and exciting merchandise. We found a great line of affordable jewelry, called Embellish, felted wool birdhouses, good for t he environment and birds too, and fabulous outdoor candles for summertime. The Las Vegas show offered more than Seattle. I have also been to the San Francisco show in the past, but last time I visited, there simply wasn’t as much available and many vendors mentioned that the Vegas show was growing in size. There wasn’t much time for any of the typical Las Vegas pastimes, but I didn’t mind. By the end of the third day, we were exhausted, but quite sure that we would return next year or visit Dallas–I’ve heard their show is worth the trip as well.
