So I left off my last blog post with a bit of teaser about my first retail stockist. Well, it's been a busy few weeks and I have lots of new gossip to fill you in on!
Monday 1 June, the first working day after the DesignMarket I received an email from The Makers Gallery up in Alloa inquiring about my products as they'd seen photographs of the event on Facebook. To say I was excited would have been an understatement!
Fast forward a mere 10 days and I was on a train heading up north with a suitcase of products to deliver to them.
This gave me enough confidence to start contacting other retailers in both Scotland and the rest of the UK. It can be quite a nerve-racking process - sending out emails and having no idea if you'll ever hear back from anyone, if they'll like the look of your products - you get the idea.
Well, it is starting to pay off - I'm very pleased to say that I'm now also stocked in this very cool new Home + Living shop in Sheffield called The Inherited Life. Check out their instagram feed for total lifestyle envy (I'll take one of everything please) .
I'll also be hosting a pop-up in another very cool lifestyle store called Century General Store in Edinburgh. On a Saturday in August I'll be in their store selling and chatting about the products (and drinking some damn fine cups of coffee while i'm there).
It will be a great opportunity to meet some of their loyal customers and introduce some new people to Lucky Cloud! I'll post more information about this event on my Facebook page.
You'll then be able to purchase direct from them after the event.
I have a couple of other potential stockists on the horizon, but they're not 100% confirmed yet, so mum's the word for now.
Peace and Love
