Them Days has settled into a booth at the Labrador expo. Basically we’re there to answer questions, sell merchandise and of course, check out the rest of the Expo. For those of you who are interested in Them Days merchandise, we have Labrador flags, Labrador flag windsocks, Coloring books for the kids, beautiful pictures of Labrador, as well as issues of Them Days magazines, all for sale. Plus, for some extra fun, we’re holding a draw, winner gets a ten pack of Them Days magazines, so drop by you could win.
Yesterday morning we went by to set up our booth, we learned what number our booth was and went searching for it. After lapping the arena twice, we managed to find our spot…that was incorrectly numbered. Oops 🙂 kind of funny though. In any case we managed to get ourselves set up comfortably and we returned in the afternoon. Aimee was nice enough to stay with the booth over our lunch break, and I came to keep her company at one.
What we saw at the Expo from our booth
Aimee and I both got the chance to look around on our own. On my right were giants of men, while I could look to my left and see women even shorter than I am. At everyone’s eye level however were the booths. They were professional, but at the same time, exciting, I’d expected suits and power point projects. Now there were suits with power point projects somewhere, but there was much more variety than just that as well.
Generous hand outs, like mini flashlights, notebooks, and enough pens to make your kitchen drawer cry with happiness. While I can’t speak for everyone that was there yesterday, I definitely know what caught my eye the quickest.
The simulator at Dexter institute. While I’m sure in their school it’s an important training tool, to the exhibit visitors, let’s face it, it was a really cool video game. I couldn’t resist playing. Surprisingly enough, the Dexter Institute exhibitor seemed impressed, and sounded sure that I’d played before. If didn’t love writing I’d probably pick up a trade. Something about heavy machinery makes a girl feel in control.
If I didn’t love writing…
Of course, it wasn’t the only thing out there, I got the best little notebook from Nalcor as a handout. Not to mention the very generous swag bag the exhibitor’s got right at the beginning. I got the coolest mug in that thing, not to mention a new stylus pen.
One of my favorites
Most of our time was spent at the booth though, although we didn’t manage to sell much on the first day, today’s a new day, who knows who’ll show up. Be sure to visit, it’s a lot of fun.
