Another show season is over! We did 5 shows in 6 weeks, wrapping up with one of our favorites - MAGIC, in Las Vegas, NV.
Unlike most of our shows, we had to set up the Gumball Poodle booth at this one. That meant getting to Vegas a day early, working really hard for a few hours, fastening hundreds of zip ties, then crashing for naps in the very comfortable beds at The Hard Rock.
Monday through Wednesday was 3 crazy days of sock talk - meeting with customers old and new, catching up with some of our favorite vendor pals from around the country (it's always fun exhibiting next to the gals from Knitty Kitty!), and having a little fun in Sin City.
For our last night in Vegas we went wild at KISS mini golf - yes, Las Vegas has a black light miniature golf course entirely inspired by KISS. Platform boots, giant guitars and even an animatronic band (which was very creepy, randomly breaking into song) decorate the course. We were joined by some of our fav buyers, the team from Portland's Red Light Clothing Exchange, which made it all the more fun...Andrea lost by 1 point to Red Light's Malina! (And Erica lost by a lot.)
Now we're back in Los Angeles, getting all those orders out and it's once again business as usual.
Thank you to everyone who visited and placed orders with us at the shows this summer! We hope you're excited about all the new fall styles headed your way, and we can't wait to see you again in a few months!
