Back to School and Back to Blogging

My display at the St. Louis Mills Mall
August 7, 8, & 9

So I did squeeze in some deal hunting in the middle of my prep for the 3 day Back To School Expo, but not much, this was the reason for my short falls in blogging lately. I'm happy to report we made it through the expo this weekend and it was a great success! If you are new to the blog I have an obsession with making bows and tutus, a hobby turned small business. You can visit my store here: Crossin My Heart Creations Not only did I have to get my display looking fabulous I also had to make sure I had enough inventory to last 3 days during Missouri's tax free weekend/Back to School sale (expected to have 125,000 people come through!) I think I had just enough and gauged it just right. It was fun and it was also a lot of work! I do plan to do more shows at malls, it was a great experience and I'm glad we got the chance to do it.

This table had bow/clip holders, fall/Halloween items, & pony streamers
