Mr. Benjamin Noriega Ortiz will be introducing his new line of furniture at Macy's Trend House in Chicago, IL, on September 26th if you happen to be in the area. He will also be doing a book signing for his new book:
A new furniture line AND a book signing?!? Sounds like the place to be Sept. 26th!
