If you haven’t been to visit Runaway in the past few weeks (or even in the past few days), you’ll want to know that owner Christy Wood’s time at the Creativation Trade Show was definitely time well spent. “I bought four times as much as I did last year,” she said as she and her staff continue to unpack boxes and get new product ready for display and sale. “Because I could!” And because she knew that her customers would love the new products from Tim Holz, Art Impressions, Jane Davenport, Lawn Fawn, and Copic, just to name a few!
