Viva Las Vegas with Pamela Huizenga

Self-proclaimed “Rock Hound” Pamela Huizenga brings a laid back, Florida vibe with her wherever she goes. As highlighted in a previous blog post, her general demeanor belies the fact that she lives with a combined family of 7 kids. While this fact is impressive, I’m even more impressed when I see Pamela at the show, at the end of the last day, and she’s still smiling and laughing…and standing! We caught up with her to ask her how she does it!

How many years have you been exhibiting at Couture?  

PH: This will be my 4th year!

What’s your packing strategy?

PH: Bring Everything! Duct tape, velcro, super glue, every display piece and some snacks!

What’s the oddest thing you bring with you?

PH: Last year it was Smoked Salmon Candy! This year … you’ll want to come by and see!

Do you have any tips for staying sane during the show?

PH: Comfy shoes, black tea, snacks  and someone really calm in the booth with you!

Favorite restaurant in Vegas?  

PH: There are other restaurants in Las Vegas?? I never get out of the hotel! I do love Red 8 for good, quick Asian food.

Vegas beauty routine?

PH: Tons of water, shea butter to moisturize and plenty of contact lens drops!

Average number of hours you sleep each night during Couture?

PH: Oh gosh, depends on the night … usually about 6 hours but there is ALWAYS one night that gets away from us and we end up with just a couple hours of sleep. Not this year though…hahaha

What are you most looking forward to this year?

PH: SALES, our new location and SALES!

What are you dreading this year?

PH: My feet, eating too much and packing up to leave…

  1. I almost never leave a response, however I read a great
    deal of comments on this page Couture Musings | Viva Las Vegas with Pamela Huizenga.

    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.

    Is it only me or do some of the comments appear as if they are left by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with you.
    Could you post a list of every one of your
    social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  2. Hey there I am so excited I found your site, I really found you by error, while
    I was searching on Askjeeve for something else, Nonetheless
    I am here now and would just like to say thank you
    for a remarkable post and a all round entertaining blog (I also
    love the theme/design), I don’t have time to look over it all at the minute
    but I have bookmarked it and also included your RSS feeds,
    so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the awesome job.

  3. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
    My blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours and
    my visitors would genuinely benefit from some of the information you
    present here. Please let me know if this alright with you.


  4. Some tasks are needed to be doing daily while others need to be completed
    weekly and every two to three weeks. The list
    of herbs is vast and unless you have lots of land and plenty of gardening helpers,
    you are best choosing a selection of herbs you would use the most.
    You no longer need to worry about seasonal price increases, availability, or
    food shortages.
