Well, here we are in 2018 and it is February already….before we have got around to saying ‘Happy New Year’ to all our customers and friends.
January seems to have flown by already. We had a spectacular Christmas season thanks to all our lovely customers. We had a record-breaking November both on here and in our Etsy and Not On The High Street stores…..and also on Manchester Christmas markets. Thank you so much to everybody who has supported us….whether is is by buying our products, following us on social media, reading our blogs or even turning up at Manchester Christmas markets with a hot mug of gluhwein!
We had the first couple of weeks in January off – we went on a Caribbean cruise to recharge our batteries – so it is all go here now getting ready for 2018. We will, as always be expanding our range with lots of gorgeous new products…..we will also be retiring some products to make room for some fresh new ideas. Personalised products were really popular last year for us and we will be expanding this range further in 2018. We will primarily sell our personalised products via our own website here and on our Not On The High Street store.
As always, there will be a strong animal-themed/natural world influence for 2018 for us. As regular readers will know, both of us are huge animal lovers and have primarily built our brand around our love of animals (our gifting range) and also our love of crystals and gemstones (our jewellery range). Our Etsy shop will continue to be the home of our handmade and aseembled jewellery range. Although we will continue to sell jewellery here on our own website, our Poppy Kitten Designs Etsy shop will be the main home for jewellery. Keep an eye on our Etsy shop for our latest pieces……
We will be expanding the range of add ons to our Etsy jewellery too this year to let you personalise your pieces as much as possible. We will also be expanding our sterling silver range for those of you who prefer sterling silver. We have horoscope charms, Greek ‘evil eye’ charms, St Christophers and much more on the horizon. So many new ideas…….
As well as our love of animals and the natural world……our range is and will continue to be heavily influenced by things we love such as travel and food to name just a few. We will also continue to follow the trends and bring you trend led goodies and trinkets. Stuff we just love and feel passionate about…..and a lot of our products can be found in our house too as we tend to pretty much stick to things we love ourselves.
Following on from pineapples, cactuses and flamingoes last year, 2018 looks like being the year of the llama and alpaca. We have just introduced some fabulous llama and alpaca-themed pieces…..these are available both here on our own site or through or Not On The High Street store. Here is a taster of what we have…..what do you think?
Hope you love our new products and ideas as much as we do…….lots of love James and Poppy xxx
