Well, 2013 has been about us steering the business and reorganising ourselves for a re-launch! What started out as a hobby selling scarves and pashminas and jewellery to friends and family took a life of its own. Our friends came to us looking for exquisite gifts you couldn’t find everywhere. At about this time last year I decided I wanted to produce my own designs and ranges which would make lovely gifts to homes they adorned.
So I got started in January with the designing, which took absolutely ages, as I wanted every aspect of what I wanted to be perfect. Most people who indulge themselves in this fashion will know how exacting it can be, although at the same time watching your design take shape gives one immense satisfaction. Thats how Leaping Reindeer and Indian Street came to be, and we have a kitchenware range in these.
Along the way we joined up with new /old friends and took their advice on a variety of things, and developed ideas where we thought it was right and on we went.
We pre launched our vibrant enamelware range in the summer at the Wimbledon Village Summer Fair which was extremely well received by our customers.
We relaunched the company and presented our finally completed designs to trade at Top Drawer in September 2014 where we were very well received indeed, for which we are grateful. It is satisfying to see the fruits of your labour being appreciated by your peers.
Since the re-launch of the company and our online store, we have been going from strength to strength (with a lot of learning, organising and hard work thrown in). This is in no small way thanks to our customers and stockists (and our extended Jasmine White family working behind the scenes). So on New Years Eve, we say bye to a year that was all about our renewal, and say hello to the New Year 2014 knowing we need to march on forward and keep doing more of the same…Wishing you all a very Happy New Year 2014. #NYE2014
