Yesterday, our core team from Total Lighting Supply headed out to Dallas for the the Dallas Market Center. Twice a year, the lighting companies are there with their product, which was the purpose of the trip.These companies send out their best from marketing and sales. For years, one of our members who had already been there, kept trying to describe what kind of a place this is-imagine, he says, that there are two buildings, one is about 4 floors high, the other is 14 floors high that are connected. In it, there are endless 'stores' for those that own retail to buy product from. It's a buyers shopping mall. This one is mostly household kinds of things and gift and gourmet (although all the Christmas Holiday stuff was out in force). Across the street in another equally massive structure is the fashion district. Yipes!

I will admit, all those stores with chandeliers is what dazzled me (we were not there for chandeliers though). Talk about bling on steroids!

After hours of talking and visiting with marketing and sales reps, we finally got a chance to sit down and collect our thoughts. And, of course, how lovely that the glass table that we sat at had sunlight on it, casting a lovely, spiral shadow from the metal centerpiece that held it up!
It was a long and grueling day as we did everything all in one day without staying overnight. However, exhausted as we were, on the drive home from the airport, we were treated to a most glorious sunset on the longest day of the year!
All in a day's work...
