I'm going to New York in only three weeks time. I'm a little bit excited. Last week my palette with my entire stand - lamps, plinths, wallpaper, toolbox and everything went off on a truck to make it's big journey across the sea. Today I am doing some planning and learning. Although I have sent many, many individual lamps to the U.S I have not done very much international wholesaling at all so I have a lot to learn.
What I'd really like is to find a distributor for my wallpaper. That would be so good. I would love to find some stockists for my lamps too but as they are made to order and it's usually craft galleries and small boutiques that like to sell them I am hoping that I can find a way to make the carriage costs reasonable.
It's all a bit of an unknown and I have three weeks to learn some stuff and polish up my brave girl boots before I take to the skies. If anyone knows anything that might be of help your advice would be most welcome.
The show is open to trade for the first three days and open to the public on the 20th. It would be amazing to meet some of my online American friends. I know it's a big place but if anyone should find themselves in New York City it would be an absolute pleasure to meet you!
