This is where we'll be going next week:
The Orange County Convention Center is hosting the January show for ACRE (American Craft Retailers Expo). I feel warmer just looking at those palm trees!
Makes sense to go to Orlando in January, don't you think? Although we'll miss our favorite reps at the Dallas show (going on at the same time), we are anxious to buy more unique items for the store. Also important to us is the fact that this show represents all North American artisans.
The Orlando Convention Center looks awesome from the pictures. We'll be flying into Orlando next Thursday and staying until Monday (January 20th to the 24th). Besides the actual market show, we have signed up for several seminars. It's a definite bonus to be able to take in some educational classes--we always benefit from every one we attend.
Our hours for the next two weeks:
Monday through Wednesday (Jan. 17, 18, 19)
The following week: Tuesday through Thursday (Jan. 25, 26, 27)
