We headed to Ocean Reef on Saturday for Meg’s big day. The weather was iffy but ended up being great. Meg, Ashley, Zaria, Denie, Holly, Jamie E., Jamie M., Grimsley, Catherine and I were at the pool and got tons of sun. It was really fun. Pictures to follow- my camera is still broken!
Packing like crazy to leave on Tuesday back up to Newport. Can’t wait…
We made it home around 2pm. I am already making necklaces for my orders and hope to have them all out by Monday. Here is what my booth looked liked. It was very pink! I have 2 weeks to clean up my house so I can get back up to Newport. That is quite a challenge, but should be interesting. My other challenge is to be tan, almost as hard.
Well, we are driving home! My Mom and I made it to Lake City, FL and will get home tomorrow around 3pm. We are so tired and can’t wait to get home.
So my last day at the show was fantastic and I got a huge re-order from the Flat of the Hill. I love Katherine, the owner and am so excited that she already sold so much of my stuff. If you are in Boston, stop by 60 Charles Street, you won’t be disappointed.
My next plan is to get my orders out and C L E A N up my house. I know I always say that but my parents have moved up the sale of our house and it has to be in good enough condition to pass my mother’s inspection for realtors. SCARY SCARY SCARY
See you all soon! 🙂
So, tomorrow is my 3rd day at the gift show and all I can say is that it is S L O W! It is not like the January show, which is packed with people. I got some nice orders and then today after I attacked a lady at the entrance when I saw her name badge say she is from Lauderdale Lifestyles (a cute Lilly store in Ft. Lauderdale) and begged her to come look at my stuff. She came by a little later and was really nice and told me she would place an order in Sept for the season. Then she told me her friends with her had their own store and when I saw their name badges, I almost fainted, C. Orrico in Palm Beach. I have been trying to get to these ladies forever and it is almost impossible. Anyway, they couldn’t have been nicer and told me they would place an order as well, but they weren’t buying jewelry at this show and to call at the end of August. So, I am so excited about that, but am hoping for more orders tomorrow.
Some guy that took a picture for me in Newport dropped my camera, so it is messed up. I took a couple of pics of my booth and will replace them when I get home from my Mom’s pictures, but you can get an idea. I am so tired and have been going to bed at 9:30 every night. I finally went to a doctor yesterday and got a z pack, thank goodness. 🙂
We set up my booth today. It is very bright hot pink, you can see it from down the hall. Still sick and trying to get better for tomorrow. Will keep this blog posted on progress.
Today my Mom and I are driving to Atlanta. All 12 hours. Painful. Very excited about the show. Can’t wait for Friday!
Flying home from Providence. Almost missed the shuttle due to mandatory diet coke from Panera. Throat is very sore. Flew all day and ended up getting in to Fort Lauderdale around 5:45. Helen picked me up and dropped me off at Villagio. Met up with the girls for dinner. Weird to be home. Mom picked me up and I came home to a mountain of mail and all the lovely stuff I left behind in May. I have some serious work to do before we leave on Wednesday.
Last day in Newport! Packed all day and actually am feeling sick. My new friend Richard brought me some juice to help, very sweet. Went to bed early. So sad to leave.
