It's he so cute?? He's new from Eureka. The new line is called "Alphabites" (as in 'take a bite') and they're just totally adorable. I saw them in Dallas and just had to bring him (and his 25 friends) in. He just arrived today.

They've got an alphabet line, awards, borders, and more. Come check him out.

Back and Busy

Whew, I'm back from Dallas - which was GREAT!

Met some new friends, saw TONS of new products, placed orders for some really neat stuff, and enjoyed the 80° weather.

Now it's back to real life - and snow. Next week I'll be talking about the new products that I saw at the show. Some of them have already arrived and are here in the store now. One thing that's big this year is mini bulletin board sets. We just put up a whole display of the ones we have so far. They're great for all kinds of things besides putting up on the wall. Come check 'em out!

Off to Dallas!

Well, it's that time of year again!

I'm off to this years Ed-Expo. It's the HUGE show where we get to see everything that's new for the coming school year. We get to meet the vendors in person, and talk to the people who create the products. It's so awesome. Looking at a product in a catalog is nothing like talking to the person who made it. We learn sooo much more about how the products can help teachers solve real problems.

The other great thing about Ed-Expo is meeting with all the other teacher store owners across the country. It's rejuvenating to mingle with peers.

I'll be on the lookout for cool new stuff (some of which is already on the way or even at the store right now)!

Yee haw!
