MJSA Rhode Island Show 2008

Well, we're back in Sequim after spending a week on the east coast for the Providence MJSA Summer show 2008. We met a lot of great people in the industry and were able to catch up with friends, customers and business associates we don't see very often.

The MJSA Shows are a greatly under-utilized resource for bead stores and large scale jewelry designers. There are representatives from some of the largest names in the industry. Since it's not a cash and carry show you get personalized service from prospective vendors and you're able to make informed decisions about product lines before you buy.

On a lighter note, I've included the picture below for fellow west-coasters as evidence that I was in fact, partaking in east coast culture:

I hadn't been to a Dunkin' Donuts in over 20 years! It was my guilty pleasure throughout the week and I was surprised to see them on just about every corner. Even the Rhode Island convention center was sponsored by Dunkin' Donuts!

The only problem I have with Dunkin' Donuts is they no longer make the original dunkin' donut! But I would love to have one of their powdered cream filled donuts. Alas, Oregon has few chain donut shops south of Portland.
