We're Back From Summer 2011 CHA In Chicago

We're home from Summer 2011 CHA in Chicago.
We got home last night and I was so tired
I was in bed within 30 minutes
of walking in the door. The 4 of us had
a fantastic time walking the show floor
each day and then sharing laughs in the
after show hours fun each night.

We ended our CHA fun with a post
CHA dinner at a local Italian Restaurant
with live entertainment. We laughed like
crazy while being entertained by Elvis,
Madonna, George Strait, The Jackson 5,
Tina Turner, Lady Gaga, Billy Ray Cyrus,
Sonny & Cher and many more personalities.

We had such active non stop 10-12-14 days and
I took +1500 pictures so
I decided I would wait and post slide shows/pics
after we got home.

We ordered lots of fantastic new product from all our
usual favorites and some new companies we love. We also
discussed several new ideas and events for the store
which I will be sharing over the next few weeks :)

To mention a few we have the following
heading our way soon. The majority of
the companies are shipping
mid-August with a few doing staggered
shipping of 1-2 releases in Aug, then
Sept or October. Slide shows will be
on the blog over the next few days.
