I remember thinking "phew, Thank goodness it's a whole year till I have to do that again" after finishing Top Drawer 08..... I blinked & what do you know, it's a year later & Top Drawer 09 !
It's been a mental few weeks of designing, planning, ordering, printing, cutting, gluing, lots of late nights and early mornings, lots of nervous energy & bitten finger nails (no blogging what so ever, so Thank you, thank you for all your lovely, yummy soap comments) but it was worth it, 110%, we had such a fabulous show.
Inspiration, the scale model & design layout
Unpacking at Olympia (Kate & I felt like Thelma & Louise driving into the exhibition centre, we wanted to drive round at high speed, doing handbrake turns!)
Patrick, Kate's VERY patient partner putting up our Belle & Boo logo (we were there till 9.30 the evening before the show started)
What a fun few days, Kate, Tracy & I met so many lovely people & the feedback was amazing. We showed lots of samples of new products, cushions,
Little madam angels (Ok not exactly new, but missing for a while !)
a toiletries range, shampoo, bubble bath and hand wash for children.
& book plates (which will be available in the shop in next few days)
We are hoping to have the fabric products ready for early Nov, the bubble bath early next year, so watch this space.
This year when the show finished I felt slightly sad, especially leaving this little fella behind :(
'hello' to all our new friends & thanks for reading.
