New ideas & gifts for the Spring Fair Birmingham.
Now normally you need top level security to have a browse through this room but seeing as it’s you, and I’m on a diet, two mince pies and a box of lindor milk truffles (large) should ensure a blind eye.
It’s a busy old time here at Little Dog Towers. The Dispatch Department are working their little socks off to get all the trade and public orders out within the 5 day time frame. Martin the Warehouse Legend is run of his feet unloading stock deliveries and refilling the product shelves. The Office team, Gavin, Nathan, Amanda and new girl Katie are very much in the moment dealing with website failures, phone enquiries, courier issues and all those matters for those who like using the phone.
However Design and Research & Development are all about the future and very much focused on 2017. The Spring Fair Trade Fair to be precise. There are the follow up designs for Douglas The Boy Wonder including a coin purse and some rather yummy packable bags. We are also sampling gift mugs – see below, and a pencil case.
For “the little dog laughed” we have brand new artwork and greeting cards to sit alongside some new designs in our china gift mugs and trinket tray ranges. And for the middle of 2017 we are hoping to launch a new set of dog bowls and biscuit tins.
In house we are busy sewing and creating new fabric products for our handmade temptation section exclusive to our website.
Our most exciting new line at the moment are our “Sunday Best” dog coats. Anna has had enormous pleasure sourcing highly impractical fabrics and yummy buttons for doggy attire. Perfect for stepping out in style or visiting relations on Christmas Day but absolutely NOT for rolling in the mud.
And that is roughly where we are in November 2016 but the next 6 weeks will see a real burst of creativity ready to kick start the New Year with gusto xxx
