The Seminar was given by Alec Puskas who was the head of merchandising for Nordstrom for 10 years and the founder of a merchandising and interior design firm out of seattle called Visionart. The best part of the seminar was that there were only 12 of us!! We all got to pick his brain about how he does things... it was beyond cool!
Without going into an entire essay on how brilliant this man is let me just show you some of his work...
The Bravern, Bellevue Washington
Christmas Decorations for the Space Needle and City of Seattle, WA
Lulu Yang, The Fairmont Seattle
Trophy Cupcakes, Bellevue WA
Christmas Decorations, Bravern
The Nordstrom Corporate Rally, Seattle WA
The man is amazing... I came home so inspired it was nuts! I completely ripped apart my shop and re merchandised it when I got home!
OK... enough about the seminar... I could go on and on!
I stayed at the Alexis while in seattle... one of my favorite hotels, I highly recommend it!!
Love their headboards!
While I was only in seattle for 24 hours I was able to meet up with my friend Emily and samples some yummy treats while in Seattle!
Happy Hour at Nijo Sushi and Grill! Lychee Martini,
Dancing Shrimp, and vegetable croquettes!
Those jokesters at pike place!
Went to Lowell's! Don't be fooled by Sleepless in Seattle... The Athenian is not even close to being as delicious as Lowell's!
Le Panier... Why do you do this to me every time??
I cant say no to those delicious macaroons!
SOO... that was my trip!! It was a quick one but a good one...
I hope you are all having a marvelous memorial day weekend!!!
