This week, we’ve been focused on getting a few big shipments out before packing up and heading to New York. NYNOW, one of our biggest trade shows of the year, starts in a little over a week! In case you haven’t heard of trade shows: it’s basically an event for businesses (like Cardtorial and Rifle Paper Co.) to sell products to other businesses. Buyers from large businesses (like Target and Anthropologie) or even small boutiques (like Urbanic) go to trade shows to find products to sell in their shops.
And yes, Yvonne took the shots for them all by herself!! We ordered about 500 or so, and got all of them mailed out this week. Though most of the legwork for NYNOW has been done, we’re still feeling some pre-show jitters. Wish us luck, please!
Sidenote: don’t worry, we’ll show off our mailers on Facebook soon!! 😉
