J peeks out from one of the many signs promoting the Expo. At right J shows off one of his very favorite finds - an adorable tomato plant.


J shows off the Knud Nielsen Amazon canoe during the Display and Merchandising Walking tour.

Three great items that made J's Top Ten Picks. Isn't the snowman cute in his jammies?


An icy-looking wreath, a great polka dot ornament display and more Top Ten Picks.


J stops to make a point during the tour. Chocolate Brown is now being paired with Chartruese Green as seen in this display.

J reviews the Top Ten Picks for this soap box talk. Halloween was also on the soap box agenda - what a great folk-art find!

Another great display - blues and teals are still around. Beautiful vases from IMAX.

More great containers from IMAX. A line of dishware called the Love Collection came in many fun color combinations.

Global Views never disappoints as a leader of the new trends and displays


J also gave demonstrations in the FloraCraft Booth - made from one of the products they sell - Styrofoam! At right is the Styrofoam Christmas tree J created.

J demonstrated the new Artesia Designer Dome form FloraCraft, by creating only half of this arrangement.
