Thanks, Mary, for taking the time to bring us up-to-date on the GLM shows. I didn't know about the Seattle or Toronto changes until I opened TCR for this month. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with the pace of the Little brothers' positioning efforts in this market.
Aren't you doing yourself a disservice in emphasizing the "import" aspect to the crafties here? Unless something has changed recently, there are separate rooms in Javits for American handcrafts and International handcrafts, and of course Handmade in USA is all American handcrafts. And the American handcrafts section in SF is pretty well defined as separate space also.
Regardless of the nomenclature, your points about GIFTS vs. CRAFTS is the one to be well taken here. Thanks.
