We arrived in Minneapolis around 6:30 pm, where we then had an interesting shuttle ride to the hotel with other Marketeers. We met up with Amy and Melda at the hotel and had a lovely dining experience. The next morning we headed straight to the convention center for set up. Here we are with a whole lot of crap and no sense of what to do with it:
Then I started bossing Roni around. Being that she was the only one able to hang anything, it was a little easier that way. :)
Then things started to fall into place. And the lower work began. This is where she started bossing me around. :(
And then 5 hours later, this happened:
It was still a bit messy, but you'll see more of it as the days pass and it will look better. We didn't consider the fact that the curtains would be completely wrinkled from the packaging until everything was hung...oh well.
I blew up a few pics of the bags and they seemed to be real eye catchers. Thank goodness.
The Glam Bags were a hit! They flew off the shelf so quickly. Every single bag sold and all of the patterns too...I'm folding more as we speak. Actually, we were lucky because we sold out of practicly everything in the booth.
Here's an upclose, from down "low" shot of the banner:
This is our attempt to take a pic of us:
This was a pic taken by the nice gentleman from across the way. OH, I have to say this, we had some incredible neighbors. Most of us were new and we just had a great time hanging out, causing trouble, and cheering each other on..ya know, all the good stuff!
