Hotter N Hell 100 Expo

For the past 28 years, Wichita Falls, TX has played host to one of the largest bike rides in the US - Hotter N Hell 100. Part of the festivities surrounding the ride is the biggest consumer bike trade show in the state. All near-by bike shops attend, as do many other vendors including Clif Bar, Bicycle-Gifts.com, SpiBelt, REI, Koobi Saddles, Pearl Izumi, and this year Skeese Greets!

Working an expo can be difficult and tiring, especially when you're there alone, but I still love doing it. Since I know many people in the industry, they offered me the chance to take a few short breaks over the three day period. One stranger even brought me BBQ because he knew I couldn't leave the booth (& it was probably the best BBQ I've ever had!) I had the opportunity to introduce many new people to the product and also talk to those who are familiar with and love the cards.

Will I make the 5 hour trek again for HH100 2010? I don't know. But I will be at two other expos coming up the weekend of October 23-25 - Longhorn Ironman 70.3 and at the LiveStrong Challenge. Stop by and say, "Hi!"

Etsy Bike Treasury

If you're not an Esty.com shopper yet, then I'm thinking you should be. It's an awesome place to shop for anything from art to clothes to soap and jewelry and of course greeting cards. I'm constantly amazed by the unique and creative items that people sell on the site.

Because there are over 200,000 vendors, a "Treasury" is one way to expose a few of those vendors and their work. My cards have been listed in several treasuries, and I have failed to save all of them (they disappear after a few days.) Below is the most recent one in which a Skeese Greets card was listed. The Treasury is titled, "Bike Gallery: A Few of My Favorites" and consists of bike themed items from 12 Etsy.com shops. The creator of the Treasury chose the Skeese Greets "Poinsettia" bicycle chain Christmas card.

When there are millions of items from which to choose, it's pretty cool to be hand selected for Treasuries. I'm flattered and very appreciative each time.
