We were intrigued this week when we took a large order of our pastel colours on eBay. These colours are quite often ordered for those small arts and craft projects so we're always interested when somebody orders a large amount. After a bit of research, we discovered a wonderful company called Personalised Gifting, based in Catterick, North Yorkshire.
Like us, they are a family business looking to expand their presence on the internet and get their beautiful products out to the world. Specialising in engraving products, they currently sell cheese boards, plaques and boxes.
The boxes above have been finished in our Blushing Beech, Pale Terracotta, Light Sycamore, Misty Violet and Sensual Soft White wood stain / dyes. No wax or varnish has been applied to the finish, to create that rustic look and feel. I'm sure you'll agree, these boxes look stunning and showcase our pastel range brilliantly.
Since the turn of the year, we've really had lift-off in terms of sales. In January alone, they grew an incredible 81%! As word spreads about our wood stain / dye, varnish, wax polish and oils, our courier has struggled to keep his head above the boxes! We even sent a parcel to Romania recently which was a new country we could tick off!
Whilst we spend hours making and packing our products, we quite often wonder what kinds of projects are benefiting from all our efforts, which is why we love it when we discover works like that of Personalised Gifting. Remember, if you have used our products and you want to show them off, using the hashtag #Littlefairs on Facebook or Twitter will see you in with a chance of winning a free bottle of wood stain / dye.
That's all from us this week - have a great weekend, folks.
Les, Rob, Phil and Marc.
