I leave this morning for Chicago, where I’m going to staff my friend Sally’s booth at the H.H. Backer Christmas Trade Show. Sally is the creative and business genius behind Roll Over Rover, a company that sells design-conscious apparel for dog lovers. Sally’s illustrations are whimsical and sophisticated. I’m a proud booster.
Last May, I went to Baltimore to help Sally at the smaller HH Backer spring trade show. If you’re a pet lover, like I am, it’s great fun to see the latest and greatest pet products (though the show isn’t open to the public, just product retailers and wholesalers). There will be 834 exhibitors. That’s a lot of pet stuff.
Back on Monday for the afternoon, then I take off in the morning for Walla Walla.
