Vegas recap

It was a week ago, Thursday January 22nd, that we were packing up the booth in Vegas after a very successful gift show.  I was pleased with results and contribute the fact that we were in a very good location (like real estate….it’s all about location, location, location) to being able to engage with people who walked by and as a result pull them into booth introducing them to Words and Watercolors.  Because of that we enjoyed delightful conversations, made new friends and wrote orders.  One couldn’t be happier.  These back to back exhibiting at gift shows take it out of me, however, and I returned to San Francisco on Friday about noon with decision that I wasn’t going to check email for remainder of weekend.  Mark and I rode bikes on a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon and besides that I rested, read and relaxed.  All much needed for balance in my life!

Vegas does it up in style, of course, and each night you walk out to the courtyard with entertainment going on and free wine and beer.
