Welcome to the Sunshine State!
Bill's next stop on his College Road Trip was sunny Florida! Heading first to Gainesville, home of the University of Florida Gators, Bill started his trip off with a bang - meeting the Gators Ladies Lacrosse team in the airport.
After that chance encounter, Bill spent some time making sure he looked his absolute best before he met with customers!
"Making sure my hair is nice and styled - going to the Swamp today! Never know who I might get a selfie with!"
"Gettin' my extensions!" With Jessica at Salon 441 in Lake City, FL.
"Gettin' my Florida tan on!"

But it wasn't all play! Bill met with more customers and spread the word about the new collegiate pieces out this fall.

From the Gainesville area, Bill made his way north-west to Tallahassee, home of the Florida State University Seminoles. In Tallahassee, he met with Eric and Tara, buyers for Garnet & Gold, before heading to Doak Campbell Stadium and seeing the Unconquered statue first hand.

Bill even met FSU track star Jonathan Reid, who will be representing Jamaica in the upcoming 2016 olympics!

Bill finished out his time in Florida with Kristen from Southern Grace Gifts in Madison, FL. Southern Grace Gifts became a brand new Seasons Jewelry customer and Kristen had nothing but kind words to say about Bill and his visit!
"Bill paid us a surprise visit today! So glad to be a part of his College Road Trip and to write a brand new order!! We love Seasons Jewelry and are honored Bill scouted us out in North Florida! We'll have some happy FSU and UF ladies when they see our new jewelry!!" - Kristen from Southern Grace Gifts
And that concludes Bill's time in Florida. So far, Bill's College Road Trip has taken him to eight universities (yes EIGHT!). He has traveled 9,744 miles (WOW!) and is itching for more! So, where will he go next to push that number over 10,000?! Stay tuned to find out!
