After spending all of last year planning, we were so excited to finally arrive at Top Drawer back in January. This was the first trade show we’ve exhibited at, and it was such a huge learning experience for us all! After a long drive down to London earlier that day, we spent the rest of the day unpacking the car, painting, putting up pictures and making sure everything looked just right!
We very quickly realised that a ladder with only 2 steps just wasn’t high enough for a 2 metre wall! After a very hectic few hours trying to put up lights and shelves with ladders borrowed from very kind strangers, luckily we just finished setting up with only 15 minutes to spare until the Olympia Exhibition centre closed for the night.
For our stand, we chose to display all our best selling, favourite prints alongside our lampshades, cushions and fabrics. We had a special House Display Stand created just for this, with fabric shelves and little sliding doors at the bottom for extra storage.
Over three days, we met so many people and spoke to lots of lovely potential customers and stockists for our products. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by our stand for a chat. We were so pleased to hear such wonderful feedback about our products!
