Trade Fair

Well peeps, we had a great day at the Trade Fair in Birmingham and found some fab new suppliers.  It was a massive place and we just about walked our feet off, but worth it.  I found a great supplier who is new on the market called PIP STUDIO.  It is very similar to Cath Kidston and Greengate.  I am so excited about it as I think it is gorgeous and should be very popular.  I have placed an order but it won't be on the website for a few weeks yet.  The designer is from Denmark so the stuff has to travel some distance. Have put some pictures on this blog.

I was thinking about putting a video on You Tube showing these gorgeous new goodies - its just that I keep hearing about people who launch themselves via You tube and it seems to work wonders ?  What does anyone think?  Sounds a bit far fetched but Ill try anything that will help my business.

Looking forward now to the weekend, Friday night with friends and wine, Saturday night - has to be decided yet - otherwise jobs to do in house etc.

See you back here soon.

New to this Game !

Well here I am writing my first blog sitting at my kitchen table on a very cold morning, but at least the sun is shining.

Last year I set up a new webshop business called and so far it is going well but I really would love more sales.  I am advertising more this year but that works out to be very expensive and sometimes nothing can come of it  - very frustrating.  I really enjoy what I am doing and am very, very passionate about my products and my goals !  I am off to the Spring Trade Fair at Birmingham on Thursday and really looking forward to it, can't wait to see all the new exciting products on the market.  Just wish I had loads of money to buy in new stock - one day !

Anyway off to have a cup of tea now, will report back soon,

Was that ok for my first blog?
