Spring Fair 2018…

Tuesday 23 January 2018

We are about to start exhibiting at our biggest ever trade show…Spring Fair 2018!! Months of incredibly hard work to design and produce the brand new Katie Cardew Home range will finally come to fruition and my word am I excited! The set up itself was no walk in the park – 23 hours, 200 screws, one drill through a finger, a litre of glue, half a bottle of gin (display purposes only of course), two very tired sisters and I think, finally, we are just about there. There are over 2500 stands and 20 halls – all in all a tad overwhelming! Currently, we mainly sell direct to our lovely customers but at Spring Fair we will be pitching the new ranges to shops, bloggers and online retailers. My sister Lucy will be by my side, showing me how it’s all done (she is a complete whizz at all this) and if it all gets too much, we have a bottle of gin on hand courtesy of the Please Pour me range! As you can see, we have gone loud, bold and VERY bright – you can never have too much pink or yellow in my eyes. Anyway, it’s 1am and I need to get my beauty sleep (ahem) before a very busy few days! Wish us luck!
