Choosing new Spring/Summer 2022 for you
Ever wondered how I choose items for the shop? It all happens through trade Shows! Here's a behind the scenes look at what happens.
Last week I choosing items for our Spring/Summer 2022 range. Fuelled by coffee, it was an early start to make the most of the day.
Each retailer has a stall where you can browse items and see what they have planned for the season ahead. These events are top secret- brands don't want sneaky pictures of their next lines coming out on social media, so we are all sworn to secrecy.
It's a great opportunity to chat to the retailers and make connections. That's always helpful when I'm trying to find extra stock for you ladies when an item is very popular.
Once I find products that I like, I place an order based on how popular I expect the item to be. Most of the time I don't get to choose how many of each size I get- most retailers sell 'packs.' These are an assortment of sizes and you can't always guarantee what will be included.
Then I wait....patiently....for the new stock to arrive. I'm always excited when I open the box and see everything again. And that's just the beginning of the journey. Then I have to steam it, get photos, upload the new items to the website and input stock levels before it goes live.
It's busy, but I love it! I can't wait to share the Spring Summer 2022 collection with you soon.
