Hello Vivienne, this is Zula Khramov of ZulaStudio,, and I wonder if you'd like to be a part of our show room at upcoming Resort Intermezzo trade show on July 31stin NYC. I know it's a really short notice but there's still time to apply... the participation fee for each is about $2000 in stead of individual price $6400, so it seams a good deal for everybody. Please let me know if you're interested asap
