I've already received notice for a competitive show starting out in the suburbs to go against classic Merchandise Mart show. As I might have mentioned after the January show, they continue to cut space, and last time, it wasn't vendors wanting to leave, but vendors being asked to leave. We'll see what this show looks like. I really would rather attend a downtown show, and I worry about two split shows. Oy.
We've gotten a few other items in this week. Halley's been pushing me to add to our collection of Write Now journals from Compendium. She's particularly fond of the dog journal (surprise!) and thought
the bicycle and Paris journals would also sell particularly well. Stacie at one point had sent me a link to the Jane Austen journal too.
We also received new Ipop magnets. While the line is distributed by Madison Park, and uses many of the MP house artists, they also find great illustrators who either do cards for other houses, like Ryan Berkeley (BuyOlympia) and Lisa Congdon (Hello Lucky).
Well, time to get ready for a full day of buying. These shows can be both exciting and exhausting.
