Trip to Rodeo Drive…we’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto……

April 01, 2014

On Saturday I returned from a week long business meeting with other independent retail shop owners In Los Angeles.  Part of our assignment was to make the trip down Rodeo Drive with a partner (mine was Barb from Watermark in Moline, IL, she was great!) to study and learn about merchandising and shop layout.  OH MY……   it was quite an experience……

My partner for the morning – I am sorry I did not get a picture of her from the front!  We are entering PRADA…..LALA10LA7LA8LA6
