It’s been a crazy week trying to tie up loose ends before leaving for the NSS.  After finally heading out we experienced all kinds of travel problems which held up flights and turned our 8 hour trip into a 28 hour trek.  Needless to say we’re here now, safe and sound and excited to stock up on great new things for the shop.  The mail over the last few weeks has been insanely exciting. The invitations we received for this event are inclusive of all bells and whistles so as you can imagine I’ve been dying to show you.  Here’s a peek into some of what I opened …

There’s still lots more fun to be had.  I’ll be tweeting from the mountain tops on great finds from the show, so if you don’t already follow on twitter get signed up!
