Setup part 2

Here are some more pictures from setup.

This a corner view. Don't panic, Andy, the back drapes for the one section are coming tomorrow morning. The background will be all black. Notice the cuneiform mug on the corner, in the display box? We tried putting some broken mug pieces in to make it look like a dig, but it didn't work.

What do you think of the embroidered table drape? Pretty classy, isn't it?

Don't ever think that working conferences is all glamor and fun. This is Gina, vacuuming up the booth after we are done making a mess in set up.

This is what the Carta booth looks like from the corner. The stack on the floor to the left is The Quest and the stack to the right is Sacred Bridge.

Last night Joe Cathey and I had a wonderful dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House. Very good food, good company and conversation, although I thought my cab driver on the way over there was trying to kill me–red lights didn't mean stop to him!

Tonight I have a meeting with the Association of Theological Bookstores and then tomorrow the fun starts. If you are here, be sure to drop by booth 922 and say hi! Oh, and don't forget to register for the $50.00 gift certificates, too.

where did you get the embroidered table drape?

Jim's wife, Merna, made it. She is an excellent seamstress. Andy, the graphic artist, designed the lettering and printed it out. Merna then cut the cloth to the pattern and embroidered it on. It took quite some time, but was well worth it for the results!
