Top Drawer Spring - The Debrief
Aaaaaaaaaand.... breathe! I am now back from Top Drawer which, at the risk of sounding like Jennifer Saunders, was absolutely fabulous. (dahhhling)
It was Studio Seed's second year of doing the show and it went so well! It was such a pleasure to see some of our existing stockists and chat through new products and feedback - but also very exciting to meet a whole host of new stockists from all around the UK! The reaction to our designs, especially some of the newer ranges, was so positive and I couldn't be happier.
It's always such a thrill when a new shop or boutique wants to stock our greetings cards & stationery, but one shop in particular was a highlight for me.... when I was at University and for many years afterwards, I lived in a lovely Manchester suburb called Didsbury. Pretty much every week I would visit Belly Button Cards for new cards, gifts and little treats. When I was still studying I would dream of my designs being on their shelves... and I'm delighted to say that the shop has placed an order with us!
So now I have to crack on with all the tonnes of admin and new orders which I'm so grateful for. A big shout out goes to my lovely man for all the lifting, carrying, general manpower and putting up with high stress levels (mine) and an ENORMOUS thank you to my big (only by an inch) sister Heather, who for the first two days was my 'glamorous assistant' and was an absolute godsend. Thanks guys x
