NY City Here We Come!

That's right we are headed to NY City in the wee hours of the a.m. tomorrow. Our flight leaves at 6:00 a.m. which means a 4:45 a.m. or so arrival at the Richmond airport = little sleep tonight! We are very excited to be attending the New York International Gift Fair for the very first time. There will be over 2,900 vendors there showcasing their exciting new merchandise and over 40,000 people in attendance! We are also even more excited to attend the 58th Annual Retailer Excellence Awards at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, where we are a finalist in two categories! Please keep your fingers crossed for us as we attend the awards gala and find out if we win tomorrow night.

Don't you worry, we will be "tweeting" on Twitter and updating on Facebook to keep everyone aware of what's going on while we are in NYC, we will also be documenting our trip with our new Flip video camera and giving you a sneak preview of some of the awesome new merchandise we will be buying for the store! Stay tuned for more...and don't forget to follow us on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook so that you can keep us with us during our travels!
