Before the pretty displays and fancy booths, there are crates and boxes and forklifts. And you don't get to see them, because Emily missed her flight! And Emily had the video camera (which you'll also hear in the video). Luckily, Paula did not miss her flight and took a few photos of the Jillibean Soup booth so you can see what a typical vendor's booth looks like in the beginning.
Emily did finally make it to Chicago, so we headed over to the convention center to show you a little of the after set up festivities. Emily explains what it is, then we do a mini tour of the event. Please see the video for more information.
We will be back on Wednesday, we promise with a much more interesting post and video to share. We apologize for the slow day, learning curve on the editing software was steep, it was late, and we were tired. Now we're off to the show!
