Bubble London goes pop!
Arriving at the Business Design Centre in Islington on a beautifully sunny day at the end of last month we were both a little nervous as well as incredibly excited about doing our first ever trade show. Not having done a show on this scale before, we didn't know what to expect at Bubble London. But we needn't have worried as we had a fantastic three days in London! 

We had of course done a little planning beforehand as to how we wanted our stand to look (take a peek back at our earlier blog to see John acting as a human shelf!), but until you arrive and see your space it is tricky to visualise exactly how it's going to end up looking. Forgetting how much of a pair of perfectionists we both are, we rather foolishly thought it wouldn't take us too long to set up. We even thought we might have a bit of time to squeeze in some child-free shopping on Upper Street! That of course wasn't to be. It was worth the effort though as after trying out various arrangements and combinations of prints and cards we were pretty pleased with the end result...
We were thrilled to feature in the Bubble Homegrown display as well. The installation in the entrance area to the Business Design Centre showcased labels that are designed and manufactured in the UK. 

We met so many lovely people on the stand as well as other fellow stand holders and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We are absolutely thrilled that our prints and cards are now going to be stocked in shops in the UK, from Scotland to Dorset, as well as abroad! A big thank you to everyone who came to visit us. It was a pleasure to meet you all and lovely to hear so much positive feedback about our product range. 

Bursting with excitement for Bubble!
It's only a week to go until the doors open to Bubble London 2013! If you are visiting please do pop by and say hello. We will be on stand A13.

We are busy getting ready... printing catalogues, packaging up and getting everything together for the stand. We are very excited about having some brand, shiny, new prints and cards at the show - hot off the press!

But it's not all work and no play...we've also found a little time to get out and have some fun in the snow...

As much as we love it, we hope it clears by next weekend! Hope you are keeping warm wherever you are.
Bubble London 2013!
We have had a busy end to the year with lots of lovely festive fairs and orders to send off to customers in the run up to Christmas, and it doesn't look like the start of 2013 is going to be any less busy. We are very excited to announce that we are going to be exhibiting at Bubble London, the U.K.'s only standalone children's trade event, which is taking place at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London on the 28th and 29th of January. This will be our first ever trade show so we are very excited, albeit a little nervous too! So alongside finishing off our Christmas shopping and putting up the tree we are busy preparing how our stand is going to look and finalising the products we are planning to take. With lots to do we'll be keeping ourselves well fuelled with a mince pie or two!

We thought this photo of our initial planning stage might make you smile - this is John Butler being a very good 'shelf'!
