Whew! - I think I’m just about ready. Tomorrow I head off to Atlanta for the BirdWatch America trade show. Ever since we started talking about buying the business, I have been looking forward to this show. It will be the first time that I get to meet other folks doing exactly the same thing we are from all over the country.
More importantly, there will be vendors that specifically handle the types of products that we might want to carry in our store, so I can have the chance to get some new and exciting new products here at the store.
Also, in conjunction with the BirdWatch show, AmericasMart - the Atlanta Gift show is running. This is several multiple story (22 in one case) buildings filled with vendors and distributors who want retailers to buy their stuff. I’m certain it will be sensory overload.
So, unless I can get access to a computer while I’m down there - still working on the laptop thing for myself- I will write a complete update on the things I see down in Atlanta next Tuesday or Wednesday.
In the meantime, please keep me posted on any interesting activity at your feeders.
