It took me about 45 minutes to do a full lap today, winding betweens row and rows of exhibitors, and I was going at a pretty breakneck pace just to get my bearings. Slowing things down, I did a few more laps, taking time to try samples (fudge, salsa, curry, pepperoni, beer, wine, you name it) and talk to some of the booth keepers.

A crowd gathered in front of Beads to Bling to learn about making their own jewellery, HealthLink BC gave me a sticker and a magnet promoting their 8-1-1 nurse on call service, Skinnygrape set up next to the Hall of Flame firefighters, and Stella & Dot had a steady stream of traffic checking out their accessories. Dead Sea Products & Hair Straighteners almost wrangled me in for a product demo but I couldn’t stop as I’m on the job today, fulfilling my duties as the show’s Social Media Sponsor. However I did pause to take a few photos of the adorable display from Western Sage Honey.
