Decisions, Decisions

Christmas may be over but I'll be shopping again soon.
Three friends and I are heading for Dallas and the Buyer's Market later this week. There are hundreds and hundreds of showrooms to choose from. My feet already hurt just thinking about it. I'll literally be walking for the better part of four days!
It is a fun trip, but also work as there are so many decisions to make.
With this economy we are now in, I must really be careful with my choices. It's always easy to buy, buy, buy and get caught up in the moment, but I don't plan to do that this trip.
Anyone else going to one of the markets?

Hi Donna, I might be going. My former boss, Sherry, is in Dallas now. Her daughter just had twins and she has a house there too. I might ride down with her husband on Thursday.....just trying to get things worked out. Market is overwhelming isn't it?? I mainly want to go to cash n carry!! Kristen

Hi Donna,
I'll be going to the New York show on the 25th of this month. I know what you mean. It is very exciting, but extremely exhausting as well. And in this economy it will be tricky, you don't want to buy too much, but not enough isn't good either. Good luck!

Oh sounds like fun! But I really had not thought about how the economy would affect what is bought. That's tricky, huh? Have a great time...Debbie

Kristen, so you'll only be there Thurs? I'll be looking for you! Terrie and Melissa, I won't be bringing much back with me as it is mostly orders I will be placing. There is a neat cash and carry area that Kristen talks about.

Carol, I would love to see how the NY market differs from Dallas. Your comment is so true.

Suzanne and Debbie...wish you could come along and help me make decisions!
