First Vendor Show of '24 Brought Hugs and Nostalgia

Last week, we had another cold snap or two, but the week presented me with a familiar event that I haven’t had since before Christmas; a vendor show.

I have been doing this second gig for five years, when I can.

I have been on both sides of the vendor show experience, as a customer and as a vendor. I enjoy both aspects.

For those that don’t know, I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. I could go anywhere and meet new people at any given...
