Yesterday, Janie and I went to a Holiday Open House hosted by one of our vendors, burton + BURTON. We have been customers of theirs for many years, as they are one of the main suppliers for balloons. They have added so many more products over the years and have some great gift items, plush animals, containers and baskets, that we have added to our inventory as well. They are located in Bogart, GA (near Athens – Bulldog country :)), about a 3 hour drive from Lexington. We had a great time and enjoyed the different seminars they had. They also served us breakfast and lunch, yummy! We heard from wonderful speakers such as Jimi Taylor who owns a gift basket company in Lilburn, GA. She has been in business for 25 years and shared a lot of good tips and information. Below is a photo from the seminar on Holiday Merchandising Displays put on by two great designers, Bill Lindeman & Greg Hall. Continuing education is so important no matter what line of work you are in!
On our way back, we spotted a camel and a zebra riding in a trailer down I-20. Unfortunately, I was not quick enough and didn’t get a photo, but it was a funny sight! I wonder where they were headed?!?! ~ Jennifer
