It was a lot of fun to see the Ranger offices and their factory and how the paints and inks are made. I had a flashback of when I was in grade school and we went on a field trip to see how Cheetos and Fritos were made -- except this time I didn't have to wear a hair net.
After the visit, Paul and I headed back to NYC and met up with Carmi for our last dinner out. We ate at Le Zie 2000 again because it was so yummy and we couldn't leave without having more of their wonderful food. Carmi checked Surtex for me again today to see if there was any more foot traffic and she reported in that it was still very slow. So I really don't think I'll be pursuing a booth there for next year.
We had such a great time in NYC, it was a good learning experience (you can't find out about these shows unless you see for yourself) and also a wonderful vacation too! What could be better? We are already planning a trip back again! We're off early tomorrow to head back home, can't wait to see Toby and Mabel and Maggie too!
You have had quite a jammed packed schedule! I hope you took some pictures to share! How cool to actually see RANGER INKS FACTORY!
I cant imagine the overwhelming ammount of products at the Stationary show-but oh id sure like to experience it just once =)
