One of the fun things about convention is to see all of the displays that they have set up.  They have things set up inside Memento Mall – which is the special store that we get to shop in to get SU logo products.  The first day they limit almost everything and then usually the second day the limits are lifted.  This year I got to get in early with special VIP privileges for getting a recruit at the beginning of July!  I didn’t have to wait in line – I walked right in, did my shopping and waited briefly to check out.  I was so caught up with that I didn’t stop to take pictures that first day when the store was full of product.

Here is the new shirt – and I did buy one so you will see me in it.  This one did not sell out.  There was also a t-shirt and it did sell out quickly.  The laptop bag – yep I got one of those – sold out.  And there looked to be a few of the craft totes left – I did not get one because I have the one I bought at last years convention.

These are the flowers on the display table where they had bags of Taffy in Stampin’ Up! colors.

Other items that I bought included some cute new shopping bags, rulers, pens, collapsible trash bins.  Many of those sold out too.  The trash bins were very popular!  And I brought back a surprise for all of my downline!  Do you want a surprise too – then consider joining my team and I’ll have something for you too.  The new starter kit in the mini catalog is only $175 and is full of exciting new products.

There are also displays throughout the Demonstrator Resource Center which is a fun place for us to get lots of ideas.

Sample “rooms” featuring Decor Elements and stamped elements.

This year Stampin’ Up! created a special place called the sweet shop.  OMG you should have seen the stamped creations in there.  Stuff looked good enough to eat.  The displays are always coordinated on a color or theme.  The sweet shop had Halloween, Christmas, Birthday, Office organization, Wedding themes and more. 

Lots of ideas on treats and sweets and fun project ideas.  I had mostly closeup pictures of ideas I might want to use but here are a few of the displays in general.

Lots of fun new holiday ideas.

My favorite were the chocolates – they looked yummy enough to eat even though it was all made out of paper, ribbon and accessories. 

Fun stuff!  Have a sweet day!
