Anyone that’s exhibited at a trade show or craft show understands the importance of good neighbors. I sincerely couldn’t have asked for better people to be surrounded by in Los Angeles!

Having a booth directly across from gogogear was a challenge. I’m a real sucker for luxury leather goods and I spent more time than I should admit debating over which bag I should make my very own. I settled on the above beauty and couldn’t be more pleased with my decision. This baby is a looker and has roller wheels. What more can girl ask for?

Julie and Shelby of Yesterday’s Best were very fun to chat with. Their line of hand-glittered nostalgic imagery cards are breathtaking in person. These ladies have over 500 cards in their collection, and claim that glitter has made its way onto nearly every object they own.

Leah of Pressed Ink, completely embodied the perfect booth neighbor. Pressed Ink is a modern line of paper goods, specializing in lovely monogrammed notecards and notepads. The line was recently featured in People magazine.

Michele and Suzie held down the fort at Xela Aroma. They had the sweetest smelling booth featuring reed diffusers and soy candles. Michele was the unofficial DJ for our aisle and I loved watching her channel Ellen DeGeneres’s with her awesome dance moves.
