Well that is a bummer I didn't see you at your 6pm run! At that time I was in unboxing all the VB bags, stuffing them with VB mints and getting them ready to go out the door!

Yeah I know tons of people who come for that crazy outlet sale - insanity! I love my VB pieces and like the duffle (boys get totes) we get tomorrow!

Not a vendor, but a generous donor that is for sure! 405 duffles/totes donated and a bunch of mints - good deal!

thank you for having this thread to follow your adventures at the Sweepers Convention. I can't go to this one, but I am already planning for the next one in Atlanta, at least that one is close enough to Florida I can drive to it. This is fun! Can't wait to see pics!
You guys always have the best pictures and crazy stories.

LOVES COFFEE!

Today for sure! I'll make sure I find you and say hello!!!!!

I thought I saw them on the Vendor list, that's why I said that! But they ARE very generous! They donated items for attendees of the Tincaps game during their first season!!!!!

Time stands still.....

Vera Bradley has wonderful quilted handbags, cosmetic bags, etc.
Wendy will love the bag.

Hope you are getting enough sleep while you are on the road and at the convention.

Just found this thread and glad I did. Since I couldn't make it to Fort Wayne just counting the days to Atlanta. 365 + or whatever

And all this talk about the Vera Bradley bags REALLY makes me jealous THAT one of those goodies won't be mine.


Eagerly await tomorrow's adventures.
