Top Drawer

Happy 2015 everybody!

Before breaking up in December we were working our woolly socks off to get all of our fantastic new deigns ready for Top Drawer- so you can imagine how knackered we felt… Christmas was a well earned rest indeed!

When we got back in January the first week was gone in a flash! Friday came and we went over to Olympia with paintbrushes in hand to set up the stand. Our spot was at the back of Greetings & Stationery with the central aisle right in front of us, which was great because it made our stand highly visible. We painted the back wall grey, with white shelves and sides to best show off our collections. It took a day of manual labour but we think the results were rather fetching!

The back wall of our stand featuring: Enchantment, Elly Jane, Maizie May, Essential Delicates and notelets.

Here we launched our latest collection Maizie May which primarily features relations. It’s the first text led collection for Clear Creations, yet maintains our characteristic delicate details and gorgeous palette. As well as this range of eighteen designs we also had new additions to the ever popular Elly Jane and Essential Delicates. The last few months of 2014 saw three new collections for us so it was incredibly exciting to be able to showcase them all together for the first time.

I came to help out on Sunday where we had lots of new and existing customers come over for a chat and an order. We think it’s really important to build up a strong relationship with all of our customers and it’s also helpful to give each other feed back on how the cards are doing. Plus we love to have a little gossip!

Not only did we take new orders from new customers all over the country, we also managed to expand our international portfolio.  We picked up some great new leads, and overall we had a very successful show and left it feeling motivated and energised.

When we got back to the studio everyone felt inspired and it was straight into designing the next collection, which we will update you on shortly. We’re off to Spring Fair at the NEC in Birmingham at the end of the month so if you missed us at Top Drawer please do come by. The stand is number 4J09.
