The thought of meeting ladies whom I've met on active rain compelled me to go to Staging Expo in Portland on Saturday. I was about to make reservations on Amtrack but then my husband (ANGEL that he is) decided to drive me down to Wilsonville Oregon from Seattle for the day. Finally I could put face to name of dynamic members of the industry. I was surprised by the enormous numbers of attendees and the high quality of the exhibits with exciting products. The guest speakers were knowledgeable, the food was great and most important of all, all designations mingled happily.
But the best was yet to come. Prizes were being drawn and my husband is now having his Sarurday afternoon nap on one of the most comfy sofas at Mastercraft Furniture Company. The next thing, out comes the owner carrying this most amazing leather chair with the announcement that I'm the winner.!!!
OMG what a surprise. What an amazing prize!! The most comfortable and stylish chair with leather is as soft as butter. Thankfully I didn't come by train, where would I have put my new chair. What is more, it's the exact same color as my headboard and so it now has pride of place in our bedroom.
A big thanks to all.
I've spent many of my years in the industry as a furniture and accessory buyer and designer. I wanted to make special mention of fabulous quality being manufactured at Mastercraft Furmiture Company. Far too much of the furniture in this industry is made in Asia. We all need to promote and support American manufacture and buy locally made product.
