Spring 2017 Buying Show In Toronto

Ken and I are heading off to the annual spring buying show in Toronto. We rarely get to see much of Toronto as tourists but we do get to see, and buy, some amazing new products for display in the store. From the sneak peeks we have had from some of our suppliers, there is a great deal to choose from. New product takes anywhere from 2-6 weeks to show up on our doorstep and the store begins the spring changeover.

This show is where we need to buy Christmas decor 11 months ahead of time. It is so hard to wrap your mind around (and muster any excitement) about Christmas next year when you’ve barely packed up this year’s leftovers. But…in no time the orders are placed and Christmas products arrive from July to September.

We generally try to take in some of the seminars offered by the gift show, they are always informative and supply blog ideas for myself.

Charter House Interiors will be left in the capable hands of Mona and Bill while we are gone. Any questions or inquiries can be directed to them.

SHARING: I do not claim all posts to be my own…I post the sites, who and where they originate if the source is known.

JOKE OF THE DAY: My brain is like the Bermuda Triangle. Information goes in and then it’s never found again.

SAD…VERY SAD DAY IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY: Actress Mary Tyler Moore, “who turned the world on with her smile” died Wednesday at the age of 80. Moore first found fame playing Laura Petrie, the wife on the “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” then, as Mary Richards in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: From Bob Uecker who is having a birthday today. “Anybody with ability, can play in the big leagues. But to be able to trick people year in and year out the way I did, I think that was a much greater feat.”

HAPPY JANUARY 26 BIRTHDAY TO: Vince Carter 40, Eddie Van Halen 62, Bob Uecker 82, Wayne Gretzky 56, Ellen DeGeneres 59, Anita Baker 59, and Paul Newman (1925-2008).
