Show Time!

The gypsies have been busy, busy, busy this month, getting ready for CHA next week in Chicago. Any trade show is exciting but this time we are over the top because we have built a new trade show booth that is FABULOUS! We really just couldn't be more pleased with the extraordinary work of Jorge H. our builder, his right hand man Hector and a few metal shop miracles by Luis. They worked so hard to get this booth ready for us gypsies to come in with our crazy ideas and transform the plywood in to what it is now.

Jorge (our hero)

We admit, as we started the transformation on Monday morning we got a few raised eyebrows. Then Tuesday, the wallpaper went up. The eyebrow raising turned to stares with all the mixed up patterns (we just kept saying, "trust us").
Then Wednesday....fabric, upholstery
tacks, and one GIANT bucket of coffee...(you would be amazed what you can do with coffee other than drink it!).
By Wednesday afternoon, the stares had turned to, "that's cool" which made us feel good about all the hard work we had put in to make it happen. (we'll post some pictures of the completed booth after the show)

Don't you just want a wall like this at home where you can have every letter of the 97% Complete stickers up for grabs. It is a little excessive but it still would be great.

So, if you are going to be at the show you must come by BOOTH #1543 and see not only the new booth but all the new products we are bringing to the show.
So much good stuff!
We also have a super, SECRET SURPRISE we are so excited about sharing!
And for those of you who can't be there, but are lovers of all things Gypsie, you'll want to stay tuned because once the show is over it will all be up on the website for you to look at too.
(and maybe we'll tell why we needed a giant bucket of coffee)
See you at the show!

I'll be at the show, representing two non-profit organizations. You gave us a donation for our fundraising crop last year and I'm hoping you'll donate again. Your booth was so gorgeous, I can't wait to see this year's! Plus I will bring my completed 7 gypsies mini-book to share if you have the time. Love, love, love your booth and all things gypsy!!! I can't wait! said...

I so wish I could see it in person but I will have to wait for pictures. I can't wait to see what amazing things you will be tempting me with!I'm sure I will need it all!
