Another weekend has passed us. Jeff and I attended the IFJAG in New York City to learn about the fashion jewelry market. It was our first time visiting this show and quite a different experience compared to JCK and ENK that we are familiar with.
The IFJAG show was held in a hotel, so each booth were exhibited in each hotel rooms. Where the exhibitors and buyers could bargain deals privately, and because of this there was no photography allowed.
I had my tote bag filled with some business cards, SP presentation folders and some samples. I liked to have them with me just in case. I heard from somewhere, they said, "You will never know about the future, we have to be ready for anything and everything."
After the show, we hung around downtown Manhattan to check out street to home decor stores like ABC and RH. I am always amazed by New York City. Someone once said, "New York City is the center of the world. You can find anything and almost everything here." I don't know how to prove this theory to be true, but what I can validate is that I found my true love and laughter here!
