ABC Show...Las Vegas
This past week I was in Vegas at the ABC show which is the juvenile industry's biggest trade show. This year they had over 1,000 vendors and buyers come in to see new items and brands. I was there for a couple of meetings with Target as Avent had a big booth there. I took full advantage of being there and worked a lot of booths for great deals, well actually i had my "wing woman" Amanda in tow and between the two of us...wow, we're a good team! THANKS MANDERS! Most vendors offered up show discounts or you could actually buy the samples. First off...i got a Valco stroller, which is an Austrilian brand and new in the US. I was able to get a $600 stroller and travel bag for $300. It has all the features we were looking for in a stroller at a hot price! Second, the brand Petunia Pickle Bottom was at the show...they make super cute diaper bags, very modern with beautiful fabric. I was able to get 2 diaper bags and a plush blanket at a great discount!
