The Right Spot
Educational events and hearing from industry experts is another part of market to learn from. One morning I attended Erin & Ben Napier talk sponsored by Sherwin Williams about sourcing American made goods. Here is what I noticed about them --
They only support and make American made goods.
Into sustainability- for their girls.
They’re real, genuine people. I could relate as they’re super protective of their girls. Ben made sure their daughter wouldn’t be in a photo when I ran into them. I totally respect that and follow the same restrictions with my kiddos too.
Erin said “I’m a mama before anything.” LOVE THAT!
Ben had on some amazing boots!
Seeing products in person makes all the difference!
Pictures aren’t always the best way to experience how something really comes across. Going to market allows the advantage first-hand knowledge of details, quality, feel, construction and more.
If I recommend a certain item, you can be sure that I’ve researched, seen or know the story behind it. That attention to detail is how I am able to confidently suggest it to you.
