Success! InsideOut in Exeter did a fab job of selling nearly ALL of the 50-odd lampshades I supplied to them in April, just in time to receive my new range. And here they are in all their glory… Dandi Flight, Lorenza, Bermuda Stripe, Peacock Feathers, Lacy Grey and Hello Luscious. Hello indeed!
The last one of these sold today. I made it at my kitchen table this morning and it was at the post office by this afternoon, ready to begin its overnight journey to a lovely customer in London.
This was a really popular lampshade, especially with parents buying for their children’s rooms. So why did I allow it to sell out? Because, quite simply, I didn’t buy enough of the fabric and it has now gone out of print. In my search for more I found that crafting cottons such as these have ‘seasons’ – they are printed for one season only and are usually in the shops for just one or two years until they sell out. It’s very rare that they are reprinted. Sigh. So, next time I see something I love I’m just going to buy a load of it, then keep my fingers crossed that you guys love it too! Another lesson learned. Wave goodbye to our friend the Owl…
Loook! I’ve been name-dropped in a national newspaper! And I didn’t even know until I did that thing I do when I’m bored but working on Quincy, yup, googling myself! This teeny success follows from browsing/interacting via Twitter and replying to Kate Burt who was enthusing about Fancy Moon (one of my favourite suppliers) in her weekly column for the Independent on Sunday and who also authors a great blog – Your Home is Lovely. Thanks Kate!
