Shopping at the Creating Keepsakes Convention
On Saturday I went to work at the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Manchester, NH. And I think that this first picture truly sums it up.
I saw this at a booth and had to buy it. It's a vinyl wall cling. I love it.
As I mentioned, I went to the convention to work. I was working at the Dollar scrapbooking booth from 8:30-1. That place was crazy! Not difficult work, but it kept me busy. I was pretty much just going back and forth between the registers and the end of the line handing out shopping baskets. The line was so long that it pretty much took 30 minutes to get through the booth! When not handing out baskets I was helping to restock items, but this was a challenge because you had to squeeze between people to get to the boxes under the tables, etc. The picture here on the left are just some of the goodies that I got at the booth. We could get paid $10 an hour of $20 of items an hour, so this pile of loot (plus a few things I forgot to include) was only $24 of my pay (purchase price would have been $48).
Here are some pictures of other purchases.
And it finally happened- I bought a duplicate Quickutz. Anyone interested in purchasing the Topiary die? It's retired, and I'll sell it to you for $10 plus shipping. Otherwise I'll probably put it up on eBay.
And as if I hadn't gotten enough shopping, I stopped at the mall on my way home and went to Pottery Barn where I got the cute little colander and bucket. Now I just need to find a space on my shelves to put them.
