We have been very busy making our summer range of cushions and we really like the finished result. Like all our product people need to see it and touch it to appreciate just how different it is, and how the colours are so much fun.
Last week we had to take some cushions into Fruitti Cuba Street (and on that note please check out the front window of Fruitti – you may spot this gorgeous parrot flame orange cushion – not mentioning any names but it looks mighty like Blue Bell Club) and we decided to travel on the train with the cushions in a see through plastic carrying bag.
No guesses as to the reason for that. Again, we were stopped by at least 6 people and asked where we had purchased these gorgeous items. Fortunately we just happened to have a flier handy.
So we have to just keep talking and talking to people and being confident enough to target people we think might be interested.
If you are over in the Wairarapa please check out Lennox Design Store in Masterton.
Stella, the owner, just loves the cushions and has asked to be our Wairarapa stockist. That is a real privilege as this store is really beautiful. She has at least 10 cushions in the front window and is confident they will sell.
Now to the throws – we have started on the summer throws and they are better than we imagined. Please see the products page and also facebook for our first completed throw. We have decided to back them with pacifica fabric just to give it the Blue Bell touch and we like the desired result.
We have also just finished a standard lamp and some cute little bedside lamps covered in pacifica fabric. We both adore the standard lamp and are reluctant to sell it, as it would look lovely in our homes.
In reflection – 2014 – what do we need to do. We have to get to more craft fairs and hopefully advertise in magazines and get some editorial space and keep working hard to get our product out there.
Thanks for the support of husband’s 1 and 1. Keep the comments rolling and refer your friends to our unique one off products on facebook/website, we look forward to some exciting news and sales in 2014.
