Last day of MAGIC

Well, as they say...all good things must come to an end. Today was the last day of the show, and what an amazing couple of days it was. I loved every second of it, and I can't wait till the next show.

One of the things I learned was that two days is not enough. Next time I will come for the full three days. This show is so huge!!! I could spend a whole day just in the footwear hall alone. Oh, and I have to ham it up a bit, and show you the shoes I bought. Some of the vendors will sell their samples at the end of the show. Check out this pair of purple awesomeness...

During the span of the last two days, I met with over 200 companies, and most of them said they had a really great show. After attending the furniture show two weeks ago, and this fashion show this week, I can't help but get the sense that business conditions are slowly but steadily improving. There were a lot of smiling company owners at both shows. Things are look'n up!

Unfortunately, covering so much ground, and talking with so many companies, my camera didn't come out of my pocket nearly enough. However, this next photo just had to be taken...

Yup! A vending machine with ballet flats! What a brilliant idea!

Seriously, how cool is this???

Well, it's now 3:00AM, and I have a delicious baked apple pie to finish here. After that, do I go to bed? Or do I go back out? Hmmmm...decisions...decisions...

I hope you have a great day full of smiles :-) And, as always, thank you so much for reading!

All my best wishes,

What a fun journey into the land of Magic! The vending machine filled with ballet flats needs to be at every street corner in every city.

Safe travels home!

Love your pair of purple awesomeness!! And come to think of it, love the fact that you're the kind of guy who will wear purple awesomeness :-) The Liquid Metal piece is really cool too :-)

Great report from the front lines of new ideas. So let's think positive about things picking up, we need change.

Loved the purple awesome shoes, samples are a great way to experience originality especially if you're a designer!
Thanks for sharing.
