In 2008, my husband and I began doing wholesale with our products and attended markets in Chicago and Atlanta. In 2013, I decided to concentrate on the retail aspect of my business and am always looking for the perfect location for a possible retail store, but in the meantime you can find me at various trade shows like The Hart Productions Holiday Market, The Cincinnati Home and Garden Show, Lawrenceburg Holiday Show, and CINsational Shopping Show.
