Christmas in February?
An early morning dash across London to Euston and I’m on a train bound for Birmingham and The Spring Fair. It’s a good opportunity to make contacts, see old friends and see what the trends are in interiors and gifts for the coming months.
I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting a full-on Christmas display in February as I walked through!! You always have to be one step ahead in retail though and people are placing orders now for September deliveries. It’s great to see lots of botanical prints and birds, a real trend for spring/summer. Toby’s work would fit right in. I’m looking forward to the stage where we’re selling at these trade shows. It’s hard work but lots of fun. On that note I’m tired! I feel like I’ve walked for miles and I now have a huge bag full of catalogues and cards. And this is just the start! I’ve booked for every trade show over the next 6 months. It’s more fun if you’re not alone, I’ll bring a friend next time…any volunteers?
