I was only told on Friday afternoon by my boss that she needed me to be in Port Harcourt on Monday because Jumia got a stall at the students’ trade fair which held at Uniport (University of Port Harcourt) and they needed someone from style team (my team) in fashion to go along to assist in the display of the fashion items. I wasn’t for it at first, on second thought, I decided it wasn’t a bad idea. I mean, I had never been there before and it was an all expense paid trip, so I’m like YAS! why not!
Flight was for 7:45 am, but as you all know our wonderful country, we didn’t leave till 8:15 am or there about. The flight was smooth and we got there in less than an hour. We got to the hotel in like 30mins and we were checked in. After lunch, the sweet sour information got to us that the trade fair has been postponed till Tuesday. Sweet because, the items we were going to display hadn’t arrived yet and sour because I wouldn’t be able to stay for the entire fair that day. Oh well!!! Not everytime sweet, I was coming back home anyways.
Before I knew it, Tuesday was here. We got our things and headed for the University, there were a lot of stands. Mostly people selling fashion and beauty items. I saw too many nice things but for once in my life I didn’t buy anything. I mean, I deserve a standing ovation cause the amount of times my hands were itching to get my atm card out. But we thank God I pulled through.
Our display items finally arrived and we started setting up. It was already 2:15 pm and I had a 3:55 pm flight to catch, so I hurriedly said my goodbyes, showed everyone what to do and was on my way out of the good ol’ Treasure Base.
and this. It was gone like 2 mins after I took this picture
Till next time… xoxoxo
