Here we are, Day 2, actually, Day one of shopping, at the CHA show in Anaheim, before total exhaustion has set in. Where is Mickey when we need him? We have collected hundreds of catalogs, translating into major poundage to transport home. The displays have been incredible, the sheer volume of ideas overwhelming, and we haven't ordered yet! Tomorrow we have another 2-3 hours of walking and then as many hours of placing orders.

This is such a wonderfully diverse show... the buyers are of all ages, many nationalities and of course, differing interests. The exhibitors are many and the catagories vast... everything from chenille sticks to scrapbook brads and speciality papers. We are in Heaven!!

Yep! Look close, it's a shopping cart!

That shopping cart chair shows you can make anything from anything! Sounds like an awesome show. I just got back from NY. It is so inspiring to go to the shows. Good luck ordering!
