A Top Time At Top Drawer...

It took months of planning, 2 days to set up but after 3 days of trade show craziness, Top Drawer Spring was all over.

Well, what can I say about Rosie & Radish's first Top Drawer experience?! It was hectic, exhausting and so much fun. We loved it!

Freezing at a ridiculously early hour at Central Station!


Despite a very early start at the freezing cold Central Station in Newcastle, we arrived at the London Olympia full of beans and couldn't wait to put our grand plan for our 3m x 1m stand in action.  Even a ripped leather jacket, paint splattered brogues and 2 emergency trips to a paint and DIY shop couldn't keep us down and soon our little stand started to take shape…


A casualty of the show - Helen's beloved leather jacket didn't make it back home in one piece :(


The spirit level was put to good use!

Even though we are relative newcomers to the greetings industry, we are still taken aback by how friendly everyone is and we were very lucky to be placed in the middle of some super talented and lovely folk. There was Yasmin from YTR Designs, Jessica Hogarth, Dandelion, Lucky Lychee, Noi Publishing and Kimono Rabbit.

An arty panoramic shot to show our stand.

First day of the actual show - very excited!
Once the doors opened it, the hours flew by and it was brilliant to meet lots of new stockists aswell as catching up with existing stockists and familiar faces. Our new ranges 'Loud Mouse' and 'Scruff' went down a storm and the 'Daydreamer Numbers' and new additions to the 'Scribbles' range proved popular too. Here's the bestsellers...











If you didn't make it to the show but would like a copy of our new catalogue then just get in touch and we will post one out so you don't miss out ;)

2 days to put up and 2 mints to take down.

It was all too much for little Radish - he slept all they way back to Newcastle!
