NSS: The Booth
Just a few shots from the booth. We have reused the same stuff (foamcore boards, the material pinned to the boards, door-as-table, dining room chairs, bedroom rug) for the past four years and yet it still looked fresh this year. We had so many compliments on our set up & I can't take any credit. It was all my talented friend Lizzy. (Lucky RISD gets her for the next two years. Sniff, sniff.)
Today is the last day and is only three hours, which means no one comes, which means we get to buzz around visiting each others' booths. I hate the price tag of the show, the "awards" they call "awards," and I certainly never look forward to moving stuff in & out, but I really do love talking to and meeting with fellow stationers, designers, buyers and editors. Cut out the crap, and it's really pretty fun.
