22 January 2016 Atlanta Gift Show Recap: Socksational!

Gumball Poodle Lo... Wishing All of Ou...

We kicked off the first trade show of 2016 last week in Atlanta. 

Guess what? Socks are still really popular. 

The Atlanta Gift Show is one of our favorite sales events. First, because it's really big and really busy. Second, because we are in an awesome showroom (Just Got 2 Have It) surrounded by fun and creative brands and vendors. Third, because it's one of the few times during the year we get to meet with many of our retailers. 

Here's a quick recap of what went down in Atlanta with Gumball Poodle. 

We took a red eye from LA to Atlanta. Since that is hellish, we treated ourselves to a cocktail pre-flight (Maker's on the rocks!). Also, got to read some of this fabulous book, Perchance to Dream by Charles Beaumont, a friend gifted us. 

Day 1 was lots of catching up with customers, including this insanely fun duo - check out their shop, Regalo, in Louisville, KY!
