Its that time of year, Gift HQ Brisbane, where a number of home and gift ware businesses exhibit. This year, iampoppy is proud to be part of this, and has worked hard to get the set ready for the big event. I am really excited to be able to put my work out there, and meet a world of potential new stockists, as I meet and great hundreds of shop owners.
The fair takes place this week, Saturday 4th July until Monday 6th July. iampoppy will be located near a number of other new businesses, in stand DS15. Register today, and you can come and take a look at hundreds of talented and inspiring businesses.
It has been a long road to get to this point, and I have to take a step back and congratulate myself on my achievements. 2 years ago, I attended my first market, with 30 prints in all. I sold 5, giving me enough money to launch another print range, my food collection. From there I have expanded to 3 card ranges, glass magnets, handmade cushions, and am featured in a number of shops around the coast. I have also managed to sign up with a number of wedding venues and planners to be the designer in many couples important day. During this busy 2 years, I have even managed to find the time to have a beautiful baby girl, not that I know how?! BUT…here I am, about to embark on my biggest adventure to date, with the investment in the trade fair. I am both excited and nervous, but am confident that it will be great and lead to many great working relationships in the future.
I will update everyone next week on how it went, and post a few piccy’s of my awesome stand, which has been created with the help of Sunny Tree Landscapes owner, Shane.
Until then, wish me luck and of possible…come!
