This leg of our trip was one of the longest but also one of the most beautiful. Coming from North Texas, we set off to Portland, Oregon, for the House & Outdoor Living Show. We knew it was going to be an adventure driving through the Rockies, so we decided to space it out over a few days. Traveling through states like Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, you get to see just how wondrous and awe-inspiring the natural landscape can be.
We navigated through all the high altitudes and successfully arrived in Portland on Tuesday night. Wednesday morning we drove down to the venue and hoped for the best weather-wise. After all, it is the North West…it rains. A lot. But luckily for us, it only misted a little during load-in. *Whew.*
Portland people are rad. We met so many great folks and had some awesome conversations from perspective new customers, as well as loyal existing customers. Like Katherine.
“The process was so easy. I just measured the inside of my windows, we ordered them online, and they were shipped to the house with no problems.”
After an incredible weekend in Portland we headed down to sunny Southern California for the Anaheim show. This venue had an interesting location because it was right across the street from Disneyland! Admission to the show (not Disneyland, unfortunately) was free, so we had a lot of foot traffic from walk-in attendees.
One couple we met there, John and Tammy, had recently replaced all the windows in their home. They were trying to figure out what would work best with the new moulding around the windows. Because there’s limited depth, we recommended an outside mount. They were drawn to the Premier Woven Wood Shades because they wanted something that would look charming and tasteful.
We had such a blast on the West Coast! Stay tuned for our next post on the Maricopa County Home & Garden Show at WestWorld in Scottsdale. Don’t forget to follow all of our adventures on Instagram @selectblinds_roadsquad.
See ya on the road!
