I’M BACK and everyone in the office certainly knows it! I have been on a whirlwind of trade shows – London, Birmingham and London again! We have launched our new range of Talented Totes - a stunning collection of creative Eco bags and guess what? Everybody loved them! We had an amazing response to the collection and you should be spotting them all around the world very soon!

The first show we did was London Edge a quirky trade show with plenty to see including burlesque dancers in over sized champagne glasses! I can’t say much for the hotel room but we made up for it by going out for some lovely meals and trying to ignore the thump thumping of the nightclub below.

A quick pit stop at the Office and then made my way to Birmingham in tow with CEO, Julia. We set up the stand and then were straight to the Travelodge for a Carvery and a deserved glass of wine! Had a brilliant and busy first few days, I was then joined by Jane (Account Manager) and then finished the show with Kathryn (Account Manager). I was there for a total of 6 days and really got used to my little cosy room and the Indian restaurant next door!

Back in Sheffield for one day and then straight back to London again with Julia. Set up the best looking stand we have ever done and celebrated with a lovely Thai meal and yes more wine! (We really do need it, honest!). Pure was the most vibrant show for us! So much interest from International buyers and everyone just loved the collection. We literally had people stopping in their tracks saying ‘I LOVE THEM!’

This is the first time we have launched Talented Totes as a complete collection and we have certainly created a buzz and plenty of work for everyone back at the ranch. I have plenty to catch up on myself, but we all had a few minutes break to coo over our administrator Terri Lee’s beautiful baby girl Ava-Leigh on Wednesday! Awwwwwwww!
