We drove from New Mexico to Las Vegas where we participated as wholesalers in our second large trade show. The Local Branch was asked to be a panelist in three presentations covering topics on being USA makers and why American made matters. We were honored to be a part of such a great forum and had a wonderful time meeting SO many new and friendly faces! So thanks to everyone who made the effort to stop by and introduce yourselves afterwards… that really meant a lot to us.
From Vegas, we decided to head to California where we sold our wares at one of our favorite shows, Artists & Fleas in downtown LA… (and we also stayed at one of our favorite parking spots – Dockweiler Beach). We ventured over to Venice for a day in the sand and in the town to celebrate Blaine turning one year older (eeek.. any guesses? We have a BIG one next year…)
Something about being back on the west coast in winter just feels sooo nice. As much as I really do love tromping through the snow and drinking hot cocoa… I love running through the sand just a little bit more 🙂
