We’ve all heard of people heading the Magic Show in Vegas, Accessories Show in NY, the Atlanta and Dallas marts and many other tradeshows around the country to find wholesalers and products for their boutiques.
But who really knows where to go and what to do when you get there.
When I first started working with wholesalers in 2012, the Magic Show really sounded like a wonderful “magic” place, that I had no idea if I’d ever be big or official enough to go. Well fast forward 4 years from them and now I’m able to attend multiple shows a years and shopping for myself and for my clients.
And In this episode I’m taking you with me 😀
