Here are the goodies I came home with, all free of charge. I won the shave cream in a raffle and Miss Jessie’s was handing out samples. Everything else was in my swag bag, which the first 80 people to arrive received.

The room was packed. There were a good variety of vendors present, some well-known brands and many rising companies.

Lucky for us, many of them have agreed to an interview so we can get up close and personal those gorgeous strands. Woot!

I had a great time and look forward to the next one.
