Harrogate Nursery Fair
As a soft toy wholesaler we have our own areas of responsibilities. I (Liz) source the knitted, crochet and fair trade toys and ensure they are manufactured to EN71 and CE and Gaynor talks about them.
Well, Gaynor has certainly pushed me out of my toy safety comfort zone and asked ME to write the blog today.
Having never done one before (and hoping never to have to do one!) here I am talking about Harrogate Nursery Fair which is also out of my comfort zone.
For various reasons we are doing the Harrogate Nursery Show this weekend, Hall E Stand 27, the first time.
As a toy wholesaler We love doing trade shows as we get to talk to our lotsof our independent retailer customers but have always had a block about doing this one (or any one) in Harrogate.
I have also felt that its a very social trade show, good for talking about baby toys and the nursery and toy trade and but not that good for business.
However, now that we are doing it, we have put a realistic budget together, done a fair amount of research about who is going and why and now feel that its going to be a good show to show off our fair-trade baby toys and blankets.
Yes, we have had to cancel a fair few family commitments ( we only agreed to do the show about 2 weeks ago!) but the excitement is building for the start of the Harrogate Nursery Fair on Sunday.
Plans are afoot for the display (the stand is much smaller than we are used to..) and we have printed a fair few order forms to take with us. Biscuits have been bought and outfits washed and ironed! We hope to see lots of our lovely customers and some new faces too. We even have lots of new samples to show!
So now that I have stepped out of my comfort zone, what are YOU doing to challenge yourself and your business today?
