Just got to share the goodness!

Halloween Convention 2009 STJ 029

I have returned from The National Halloween Convention in King of Prussia, Pa. The whole thing was amazing!! And boy could you see our booth when you walked down the center aisle!!

Halloween Convention 2009 STJ 043 was told time and time again that we had the BEST booth at the show!

Other vendors were coming up and saying the sweetest things. Many asked if they could put our STJ link on their site (ah-duh..YEAH!), One said he has been doing these shows for 20+ years and he has never seen any booth better than ours!!

Halloween Tree, do you have yours?

The booth really was a visual feast for the eyes. The artwork sent by the STJ artisans was TOP-NOTCH!!

Someone said they had never seen Halloween done like this! Another said, it is like Christmas in our booth, only it IS HALLOWEEN!!!

We sold and sold and sold! We had awesome packaging (Black bags with clear frosted polka dots that showed our orange tissue paper through it!) and you saw our bags being carried all over the convention floor!

People were trying to find out "what is with the bags and where are they all coming from"?
To see bags click this link and look at the 2nd picture in the slideshow on the CBS website!

We were photographed and interviewed so many times. CBS 3 said "Wow, you guys are popular" after they came back a second time for more pictures. I could seriously go on for another 2 blog pages about all the wonderful stuff that happened for STJ this Easter weekend.

Brandi of She's off Her Rocker
and her Hubster Jim drove all the way from North Carolina (11 hours) to be there and help! I am not only grateful for their help but for their friendship. We will be long time friends for sure!
