Time period: April 25, 1999

We were still living in Edmonton at the time, but the University of Calgary was interested in Hubby, and I was interested by Calgary, as the Barbie doll club of Alberta was situated in this city. Meanwhile it would be nice to go to the doll show.

I was way more organized then, with my own table cloth that people could (and did) recognize from far away. I had several faithful customers visiting me to see what was new on my table.

I loved those shows. I appreciated the comments, even criticism, as they were always constructive and gently presented. I learned so much from my interaction with my customers, learning what they were expecting.
