“A ship is always safe at the shore, but that is not what it is built for” – Albert Einstein
What an experience! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t still tired after exhibiting at Top Drawer London this year - taking yourself out of your comfort zone is daunting and exhausting, but it so so worth it!
After initially applying in Autumn 2019, I had to wait for ages because the show was postponed twice due to covid. Then, when it was finally allowed to happen, I wasn’t sure if I was going to get there because of the huge storms battering the UK. Thank goodness that in the end, I made it and so did the many visitors and customers who made their way to Olympia over the three days of the show.
It took eight hours to set up my stand, and I didn’t sit down for four days, but it all went smoothly and I really enjoyed the experience. I met so many amazing businesses, makers and potential new stockists while I was there – hoping to be able to share more about that soon!
I also had so many lovely supportive comments from customers, friends and other makers who were excited for me – thank you to every one of you.
