our first day out

Date: 5 - 8 Jun 2008
Venue: Singapore Expo

Our very first consumer show! Though we only got one third of the booth space, we had a really exciting 4day. The first day was rather slow and we feared that we may have to lug all our goods back at the end of the 4th day. But how wrong were we! Our cute BabyLegs was almost SOLD OUT on the 3rd day, we were already taking pre-orders on the 2nd day for the more popular styles which were mostly sold out by then. We didn't bring much stocks for The Dream Bag, just a few sample pieces as we weren't expecting such good response for our adorable sleeping bags too! So we had to offer pre-orders service as well for The Dream Bag.

A number of our regulars came over to say ‘hi’. After all the emails & PMs, we had finally met.... for the first time. It was really nice to see everyone, we can now put a face to the nicks/email addresses. We also met some very nice first time customers (hopefully will also become our regulars) who’re very patience with us while we made out their pre-order list or when we gave out the wrong change.

Overall, it was a very fun and fruitful first day-out for itsy bitsy ME! Above are a few snap shots of our humble booth space. We know it is not impressive BUT we promise we will make it better next year. 

We would like to thank: 
  • Maryann from The Studio Loft for sharing the booth space with us and giving us tips on how to go about doing up our one-third space area.
  • Hann Yang from WINKtoLEARN for being such a nice neighbor and his generosity in offering us his carrier bags for our goods when we FORGOT (yep, u read correctly) to bring our own, oh... and the drinks too.
  • Dear old sis for helping out, I wouldn't be able to manage without her.
  • My son for helping to distribute our printed DMs.
Well, till next year....
