a note from WWFA

If you've been watching the news lately all we seem to be hearing is bad news about our economy.


In these tough times people become more home centered. We have much to offer as decorating and design professionals. We deliver the services and products that our clients need with a plan that works within their budget.


Plan to visit the Interior Design Show/IDS09 Trade day on Friday, February 6th, 9am - 7pm. You will see the newest and most innovative in international and Canadian products presented by 300 exhibitors.  


Call our office and find out how you can join us at the International Home Show in March.


There are many opportunities to educate yourself by visiting any one of the suppliers listed in our directory. Take the time now when business may be slower and learn more about the products your clients are looking for. Take a tour of Hunter Douglas in Brampton, ON. (see article below)


WWFA offers many benefits to their members. Find out how we can help you save money on shipping, advertising, continuing education, Petro Canada savings and more.


When is now the best time to evaluate what you are doing, what is working and what is not, to move your business forward no matter what is happening in the news.
