I’m sure we’re not alone in thinking that this year has gone by incredibly fast! It only seems five minutes since we were waving goodbye to 2017. 2018 has very much been the year of the new. Here are some of our highlights…
We began the year designing and preparing for the tradeshow Pulse. This meant new products, including a number of card ranges, and a website redesign over on our wholesale site. Pulse led to some really exciting opportunities, one of which was supplying our Votes For Women range to The Museum of London. Pretty cool, right?
There's been a real focus on girl power in general this year, which leads us to our one of our proudest moments of the year - the launch of our sweatshirts. We created and designed our clothing range with the aim to empower, inspire and reflect a society that's pushing for equality. We were overwhelmed by the response. We're so pleased that the jumpers resonated with so many of you. You can see the entire range right here.
As well as product launches (of which there were many) there were also product relaunches. Earlier this year we decided to relaunch The Bookishly Classic Book Crate. We're so pleased that so many of you are loving it, particularly our Anne of Green Gables and A Christmas Carol crates. If you're looking to take up a new hobby this year, you can get our latest crate right here.
Similarly to last year, we're lucky to have had our products mentioned by various magazines and online influencers including the brilliant Mother of Daughters, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Louise Pentland.
In a year that's been tough for retail, we wanted to thank you guys - you're the best. When you support a small business, you're making a huge difference to actual people. We're always thankful for your ongoing support. 😊
Wishing you all a happy and healthy year, although let's hope time slows down just a little bit! We've currently got a sale on throughout this month, if you'd like to take a closer look to see what's on offer you can do so right here.
