Harrogate home and gift trade show

Well at long last I am writing about our show in harrogate a couple of weeks back, it was our first ever Trade show and went really well considering the current climate we are in.
Lots of people stopped by and gave us their details and took our brochure, and we met some really nice people who gave us some brilliant advice.

Doing your first Trade show is always quite a challenge and we had a lot to learn, we were really happy to take some real constructive advice from many potential clients and were really grateful.

Also want to thank the people that placed orders with us we will soon get you on our stockists lists so thank you so much.

I think Davinder wondered what I was up to When I started making this bird house for our display, but he loved it when he saw the finished thing!! just a bit of fun to show off our prints plus you may have noticed there are a lot of birds in our collection so it all ties in really.

We Spent a bit of time putting together press packs and added little bows and vintage button and our lovely sticker on a cute print trimmed luggage tag, inside we images and our postcard along with a cd for magazines to freely use our images to promote us in their publication, lets hope it worked!!

We had quite a few to do !!!!
Our empty stand when we arrived

The all important bird house in the corner!! no its not for sale!!!


We needed somewhere to hide all our paper work and this Ikea draw worked well since its cheap and cheerful!! we thought we would brighten it up with our prints to hide the horrible plastic sections.


I need to thank my Dad for helping us make these handy stands for our cushions.




Being half way through pregnancy I was glad for the chair!!!

  4. Hi Denise,
    yes its a bit of a mind field trying to remember everything you need and just working out your display, we made a few changes as the day's went by as we responded to what customers told us.
    Don't be afraid to take their advice and listen it's usually really helpful and we learn't a lot about what to do and what not to do going forward.
