Vintage Vinyl Journals is pleased to have been a part of the “Made in the USA Starts with YOU” Expo presented by the Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, April 24th in Quakertown, PA (about 20 minutes from VVJ headquarters).
The UBCC expanded their message of “keeping it local” with special acknowledgement of business like us that manufacture locally. They took the “Made in America” words to heart and designed their business expo to identify and promote the businesses right in our own backyard that are the makers of products people use every day either in business or for own personal consumption.
This expo is the largest business exposition in our region showcasing over 100 other exhibitors marketing their business and/or community service. As probably with most places, most of the residents and businesses are unaware of the magnitude and diversity of products that are being made right in their own backyard. I commend the Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce for helping to promote that awareness and increase the power of networking through their expo.
We were among other manufacturers of locally-made products, including Knoll furniture, K’nex toys and Avery Denison.
Our “booth” was a 4 x 2 foot space on a table and every inch was filled up! We had a great location front and center from the entry doors. You couldn’t miss our vibrant colors and eye-catching journals!
The expo was open to the public and admission was free. Other highlights of the day included lunch from Chick-fil-a and all the Philly soft pretzels you wanted, samplings from local restaurants, door prizes galore and a live broadcast from a local radio station.
VVJ thanks the Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce for allowing us to participate in this wonderful event and we are pleased to spread the word about VVJ and to have meet some new customers and fans! Check out the photos from the event here:
