ETC homes and gardens lifestyle show February 28 2013, 0 Comments


Well its finally here!!!! the day I have waited for with excitement, fear and trepidation the very high profile 'ETC Homes and Gardens lifestyle Show' in the Brighton Centre. (stand 202)  it is like the 'Ideal Home show' full of big companies and big names promoting their businesses and of course 'little me'

It is by far the most prestigious event I have lined up this year and I'm going with the view that it will be a fantastic experience and way to promote my business locally as well as a way to learn and improve all aspects of displaying and selling at this type of show in comparison with the local craft fairs I have been doing.

I think I'm organised ................as well as I can be with limited experience. A good range of fabulous jewellery is made, photo album of all pieces and order book (ever hopeful) display boards, shelving, busts, tablecloths mirror and every sundry item imaginable as well as a comprehensive and co-ordinated range of packaging and gift wrapping and a new IZettle card reader so that I can now take credit and debit card transactions.

the Wacky wire range of necklaces that cross over at the front and can be bent to any shape are big sellers at the moment and available in any of the 20 colours of wire. I have added some photos and some samples are on the wacky wire collection, if you prefeer other colours please contact me and I will happily work with you.

Don't forget mothers day is just over a week away, please don't leave it until the last minute, check out the website over the weekend for postage next week to ensure presents arrive in time.

this week has been a mixture of highs, (first website sale yipppeee) and orders for two bespoke necklaces and a big low the anniversary of my dear father passing away. I'm hoping this weekend and a new month will be a continuation of the highs.

Very best wishes to you all for March, hopefully we will see a glimpse of spring like weather to give us all the lift we need, the crematorium 'spring garden' was full of beautiful daffodils nearly in bloom today, a stunning vista.

Look forward very much to hearing from you with some lovely orders over the spring months,  Vanessa x
