My pal from Purina wasn't there but I met some new furiends from Purina that WERE there! (Purina was one of the sponsors).

I immensely enjoyed walking around and meeting and speaking with some of the vendors that were there. A few of the booths were already decked out for Christmas:
Speaking of Christmas. If you live in Michigan and are looking for gifts for the pet lovers in your family, the Novi Pet Expo is DEFINITELY the place to go! Here are a a few of my favorite vendors:

We've been making and selling polymer clay jewelry for over 10 years, our main venues are art festivals in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, New York and Pennsylvania.
As I made my way around the Expo there were even MORE items that I fell in love with! Below are some delectable oils that I purchased from MadgeandGert.com
I thought it was brilliant for a candle/oil artisan to be present at a Pet Expo. Pet people are often paranoid that their homes smell like pets and are often seeking a way to disguise the fact that pets reside in the home.
Last but DEFINITELY NOT LEAST I ran into my old buddy Deb, from:
Who I first featured on this blog back in January of 2012!! It was like "old home" day seeing her again! We embraced like long lost buds and made plans to reconnect in early 2015. Deb makes unique, HIGH QUALITY, "upscale apparel for pet parents!" Her designs are amazing, you should check them out, they make great gifts for the holidays, but trust me, you WILL see her again in early 2015!!!

It appears I wasn't the ONLY one who was interested in doing some holiday shopping, while speaking to Deb, I looking across the aisle and who did I see? It appears that this gentleman was either ordering online or do you think he was checking his list of "Who is naughty and nice?"
|"Santa" checking his iphone?|
He didn't even notice
that I took this pic!
"Zooms" are great!
