So I was aiming for an August update and stuff got in the way!
Show season has kicked in, and after Kensington in September, Miniatura in October and Pudsey last week I’m beginning to think its just like old times!
But its not quite… we are all having to adjust to being a bit more careful when we are at events and masks are still the norm, but hopefully we are at a halfway house and will have a new normal soon.
But the new normal I’m talking about is not is not just about our behaviour at shows, but how my business is run and affected by changes in the wider world – what visitors at shows may not realise is that just like supermarkets – our supplies of furniture and accessories are being hit and it can be really difficult just to find furniture before the process of creating a finished suite can begin. Its taking a lot of extra time to source alternatives and replacements, not to mention rocketing stress levels and shipping costs when you find them!
However, as I have mentioned before, necessity is the mother of invention, and I am finding inventive and creative solutions to my supply dilemmas. So over the coming months you will see changes in the shape of some of my stock pieces, like bedrooms and dressers, which will be sourced from new suppliers. I am also starting to create my own 3D printed pieces of furniture, and also creating parts to enable me to create furniture – which actually is quite exciting and means that more of my base furniture will be 100% exclusive!
Every cloud has a silver lining!
So despite being hamstrung with supply problems, I have been busy and have a few new things to add to the INSPIRATION/JUST FINISHED page as well as my website SHOP!
