With 2019 winding down and a new year starting, I’m taking time to reflect on some of the best products I found this year at Expos and Trade shows. Hopefully you will see these besties in your local stores and if not most are available to order online. Click on the Band Name for a link to its website.
All produces appear in alphabetical order and for some I am an affiliate or Brand Ambassador and will be noted as such. I was not paid by any of the Brands to endorse their product and opinions are my own.
