Things have been very busy this past week here at ATDML as we place orders for the CHA show. This is the second year in a row which we haven't travelled for the show but it has just not been practical to organise juggling other jobs, children and time.
We are fortunate that in these more challenging economic times the manufacturers are keen to get all the business they can so what were once exclusive show discounts are often offered to all retailers placing orders before and during the show in person or via email so we are lucky that we are not missing out on most of the offers.
What we do miss very much is the chance to see the products in the flesh. There are some lines which you just can't appreciate via a computer screen (and this has a knock on effect for sales from our site) a case in point would be the My Minds Eye Lost & Found which looks "OK" online, but sold like hot cakes at our retreat because in the flesh it is one of the most beautiful scrapbooking lines I have ever come across.
Anyway, I thought I would keep you up to date with what to look out for in the store as the new product starts to ship and arrive...
My Little Shoebox
and lots more!!!
