Dreams (aka Wish List)

The other day I wrote a piece about participating in Trade Shows. In that post I stated: "Each time I make a list of what I can do better, differently next time." I failed to mention: "Each time constantly make notes of things I need/wish for the next time."

Over a year ago, my sister loaned me several of her mix-matched 4' folding tables and told me just to keep them. Well, she needed them back after this last show for an upcoming special event she's having in her home. I appreciated, and am thankful for, the use of the tables while I had them! In fact, until they were gone, I didn't realize how often I used them here in creating my wares!

When she came down for the trade show, she brought her utility cart. Oh. My. Goodness. What a difference it made in transporting products & supplies (like tables!) from the vehicles to the sight, and back! I decided right then, I needed/wanted/wished for a cart, too!

This One Garden Utility Cart would help me in so many ways!

At least four lightweight 48" x 24" folding tables for work surface and product displays.

While looking around at other vendors' booths, I saw some displays that nicely showcased their products. I've been on a Google mission to find something that would work for my aprons! I found an adjustable height display with four arms "waterfall" so one arm could be adjusted perfectly for the little girls aprons, too!

Okay, we all know I'm really dreaming... I might as well go all out, since it's my dream!

I just found this: "Decorative Spinning Display Hat Rack"! This would be perfect for new products in the making! It holds 15. That's about right!

For my bags and totes, a 2-way floor model for 20 displays is just what I need!

And last, but not least, a white banner with red lettering: "Lanetta's Creations"
But, that's another day, another dream!

What do you wish for (besides buying customers!) to make the Trade Show experience better?
