I'm blogging ASTRA, and nobody can stop me

Just arrived in beautiful downtown St. Paul for the American Specialty Toy Retailers Association trade show. Here are the things I have so far:

1. A hotel room
2. A nametag
3. Two boxes crammed with product, banners and brochures
4. Some hope
5. Some skepticism
6. A very nice new acquaintance whose name I've already forgotten
7. Tea

Just now heading over to the exhibit hall to set up my booth. I am mightily outclassed by the other exhibitors, but I will present that as irresistible homespun charm. Selling begins tomorrow morning at 9 am sharp.

More soon. Brought my camera, so be on the lookout for photos of the action.

  1. "Mightily outclassed?" Perhaps other vendors have more expensive set ups, but more class?
