William Firth Woodcraft Attends Top Drawer Spring Summer 2018

Top Drawer Spring Summer 2018

Top Drawer 2018On 14-16th of this month, we were fortunate enough to attend Top Drawer Spring/Summer 2018 at Olympia London.

Top Drawer is a major international trade show, bringing together both leading UK and International brands, as well as giving new designers and makers an opportunity to exhibit within the ‘Spotted’ section of the show, and that is exactly where we were placed.

Top Drawer Spring Summer 2018The Show

The ‘Spotted’ section was on the first floor of Olympia. As we arrived it’s fair to say we were somewhat overwhelmed by the sheer size of the whole operation. There was pretty much every brand you could think of (in the realm of home, gifts, stationery etc) with huge stands that looked incredible. Intimidated, much? We made our way upstairs and started to build. After a couple of hours, we were all set up and ready to go. We laid out our fantastic new brochures, designed by Tom Kidd, and started to mentally prepare for the first day of the show, which was Sunday.

Our Experience

Throughout the course of the show, we realised we had no reason whatsoever to be overwhelmed or feel intimidated. We had some fantastic neighbouring stalls including Wolf & Ink, Disciple Skincare, Perch Upholstery, Moby Maps & Well Spotted to name only a few!

We met some fantastic people from varying sizes of businesses, and from not just the UK but all over the world.  Each day brought new people, from Buyers, to Directors, to Business Owners, to Journalists, and we can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed chatting to everyone.

We received great feedback on our products and enjoyed talking potential customers (and interested people in general!) through our work and everything we had spent so long preparing.

We have received multiple orders since the show, both from businesses in the UK and Europe, and cannot wait to get going and build relationships with these new companies long into the future. We’ll give you more information about these businesses in due course, as and when we can.

Top Drawer Spring Summer 2018The Future

As you’ve read, we have received multiple orders, so the next few weeks will be seeing these through and sending them out to their recipients. We hope to exhibit at Top Drawer again in the future and are very excited to see what more comes to us off the back of the show.

If you’ve got any questions or would like to find out more, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

The Churchmouse at Barbon

William Firth Woodcraft adds The Churchmouse at Barbon to Growing List of Stockists

As you probably already know if you’re an avid blog reader of ours, we attended many Christmas Markets in 2017, one of which being Kirkby Lonsdale Christmas Fair. Whilst there, we were fortunate enough to meet Jules from The Churchmouse at Barbon, and since then, we are now working together, supplying the shop with our products!

The Churchmouse at BarbonThe Churchmouse at Barbon

The Churchmouse at Barbon is a fantastic store and delicatessen, hugely popular with walkers and cyclists. Situated in the centre of the village of Barbon, just outside Kirkby Lonsdale, the fully licensed venue offers food and drink as well as selling a wide range of cheeses, meats, groceries and now, William Firth Woodcraft products!

Jules said;  “William and I met at a Christmas Market in Kirkby Lonsdale. I was amazed at the quality of the products. I immediately purchased some of William’s stock, which has been really popular in store. They are items of sheer beauty and a treat to use in the kitchen. They make cooking more of a pleasure than it is already!”

We are absolutely thrilled to add such a beautiful venue to our list of stockists, and we are even planning an evening event with Jules and the team for the Spring at the venue itself, so watch this space!

If you have any questions, or if you would like to become a stockist, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
