Bead&Button Show - By the Numbers

Things are almost back to normal around the office with half of our team safely home from the Bead&Button Show in Milwaukee. I think we all needed to spend a few days off our feet to feel human again. That's the beauty of a desk job!

Here are a few photos of what our booth looked like from start to finish:

And here are a few numbers on how it all came together:

Number of different products for sale = 535
Unique pliers and cutters offered = 40
Different design stamps we brought = 145
Number of Beaducation Booth Babes = 6
Hours to set up = 19
Hours to tear down = 3
Classes taught (including 2 Make & Takes) = 7
Students taught = 134

As much work as a show like this is, we can't wait to do it again next year. If you stopped by our booth, please let us know what you liked about it (how 'bout that prize wheel?!) and anything you can suggest to improve your shopping experience.

And don't forget -- we'll be in Philadelphia for Bead Fest in August!

I loved the booth, loved how helpful everyone was when I was trying to decide on my pliers (ended up with Lindstrom, they just felt better in my hands) and that I was able to handle the different pairs while I was deciding which ones to buy. And your prices on them were great. Can't wait to see you there next year!!

I loved the prize wheel. I won a water bottle, thank you very much!
