School Houses are a Must See!

School houses are scheduled the day before Market officially opens and are a great source of product information for shop owners.  These 15 minute to 30 minute sessions are opportunities for manufacturers and designers to showcase what’s new and share why you should carry it in your shop.  These sessions are a great way to choose classes and demonstrations for the next year!

We  have  a star studded cast – why not learn from the BEST???  I have spoken to all of these ladies – and been involved in the development of the topics – and they are absolutely awesome!  This is simply the best use of your time – bar none!!!
