Our best hint for Vegas is VALET PARKING. You can use the valet parking at any hotel for $1 or $2 and save yourselves a ton of walking. (We ask a valet parker if $1 was enough and he said "I made $70,000 last year").
Please keep us updated on the goings on.

I won't be there physically ......can't move that fast this year!!! BUT...I will be there spiritually, rooting you on and waiting to hear all the details!! I know it will be fun and I'm sorry not to be able to meet and greet.
Welcome to our new members attending....you are in for the very best time with these dear people
Waiting anxiously from Garland, Tx.

Thank you for responding to the question about meeting for a drink, we thought it would be a nice thing to organize and wished more would have responded- Oh well, maybe next time.
We will meet up Katita and discuss our shoes, I am the same way too!

The main reason is that I can't afford a trip right now. My husband and I are planning to buy a house this year. Plus, I could use the extra $ for furniture. I have BIG decorating plans. I'm so excited that I'll probably post before and after pictures of certain rooms. I've been talking for years, but I need to finally buy a curio cabinet for solids, powder compacts, perfume bottles, + Czech crystal. I'll probably go with a huge one (or 2) since we will have space.

Have fun everyone!

I've already tried on all my summer sandals - I've only decided on one pair so far.
About being afraid - DON'T BE! We talk about solids, makeup, houses, corporate politics, family, friends, places...etc...on this site - in a very real way I feel the people here ARE MY FRIENDS AND THAT MEANS YOU TOO! I met KK in NYC when she came East and it was WONDERFUL. So much fun to see in person the person I had been posting with. I bet it will be a blast. Let's face it, no one on this site thinks we're crazy for collecting. I'm sure there will be friendly fun and love in the room. So next year, don't be scared and come see us. I'm planning on going to next years convention also. I hope to meet all you fraidy-cats there!
With no fear, Katita

I guess I will just have to be with you in spirit.
To everyone going, wishing you all a really nice time!

I CAN'T MAKE VEGAS THIS YEAR BUT PLAN TO GO NEXT.
IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT SOME OF YOU MIGHT FIND IT SCARY, MEETING UP WITH NEW PEOPLE WHEN YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN.......SO START SAVING NOW FOR NEXT YEAR AND WE CAN ALL HAVE A GOOD TIME TOGETHER....I WILL GIVE YOU ALL A GUIDED TOUR OF VEGAS.

Meeting for a drink sounds like a fine idea. Maybe we could confiscate a corner of the cocktail lounge. (The Boardwalk must have a lounge. Just don't remember seeing one last year). Bet there will be more who wiil join the group when we talk to them at the dinner.
Getting anxious! Can hardly wait 'til Thrusday when we leave.

I was feeling quite apprehensive at attending the Saturday Open Day in Orlando, 2002. Needless to say, everyone was so friendly including Woody, Angela, Ann, Lisa and Jack, Ron, Nancy and KK. I expect I have missed out a few names here! Apologies! It was sooooooo busy, and there was so much to see that there was no time to feel intimidated after taking the first initial step! When I went to the U.K. Chapter meeting I thought I wouldn't know a soul, but as it happened, I had met June Victor previously and she and everyone else made me feel really at home! Nancy will vouch for that!
So, what I am trying to say to you, in a much laboured way, is take the bull by the horns, as being on your own is no reason to miss out on so much which you can really enjoy and learn from. As for members meeting up for drinks afterwards, I think that is a wonderful idea. Go for it!
I really wish I could attend the Las Vegas Convention this year. Unfortunately, it is not possible, but Margaret and I are still trying to catch up with Martha if we can possibly do so!
Have a great time to you ALL!

Perhaps it's for the best because I am in the midst of planning a master bedroom and master bath remodel and all I see is $$$$$$$$$$$! Of course, the 1st Harrod's bear solid had to be bought. (regardless ) but what I am spending on this solid compared to the bids I've been given for remodeling (and I'm the general contractor on this job) is like throwing a beach chair off the Titanic.
Am bummed that I won't be able to meet the BBers in person, though.
To all of you going....safe trip, have lots of fun shopping or looking, and have a few cocktails for me.
I'm going to look at faucets on the internet to see if I can save some money on the ones I have selected. I keep scaling down this project and I think that I can live with what the plans are. I really want to treat myself to some lovely faucets...tired of the generic Home Depot stuff. I have a roman tub for which I want a waterfall faucet and by golly...I will have it.
