What happens in Vegas…

Me and my sidekicks (Khristi & Lindsey) headed to Vegas for our annual buying trip.  It’s a fun time spent with friends as well as buying for the store for the year.  I placed my order for Christmas 2017.  Crazy right!

Each year I learn a little more about buying and of course continue to be inspired by others creativity.

Each day started with a couple cups of coffee.White Barn VegasWe stayed at the Paris Hotel.  We like this hotel because it is centrally located.  We like being in the middle of the action.  It also has our favorite restaurant.  We are right across the street from Caesars so we got to see the water show from our room.Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Every night ended with dinner, cocktails, and Epson Salt foot soak.

White Barn VegasYou know your feet hurt when you have to hunt down a Skeechers store to buy comfy shoes.  In 3 days we walked 23 miles, just shy of a marathon.white barn vegasThe trip wouldn’t be complete without Lindsey doing a yoga pose in Caesars.  Year of the dragon.

The best part of the trip was the inspiration I got from vendors.  Some of their displays were absolutely amazing.White Barn Vegas White Barn VegasWhite Barn Vegas White Barn Vegas White Barn VegasWhite Barn VegasWhite Barn VegasWhite Barn Vegas White Barn VegasWhite Barn Vegas White Barn Vegas

I can’t say I came back refreshed.  I need a restful vacation after that, but I did come back inspired. Inspired by the beautiful displays and people’s passion to do what they love.  I feel fortunate to say I truly love what I do and that is so special.
