What I'm looking forward to ...
With Christmas a distant memory and the "are we ever going to get to the end of January" fast approaching, I've been reflecting on our journey throughout the past year and also thinking about what 2020 might have in store. My little business Ivy Grey has gone from strength to strength thanks to all the fantastic support from you, my customers, over the past 12 months. I can't believe that we now have almost 15,000 followers on Instagram!
I've expanded our product offerings and found new suppliers, but I have tried to be true to what we stand for - beautiful individual pieces which will add a little style and elegance to any home. On top of that, not venturing too far from our established colour palette that we know works for our customers.
And it's been more of a family affair. My Dad has streamlined my storage and stock, my Mum is in charge of the despatching of all your lovely orders and my Grandad (85) as Postmaster General takes a daily trip to our local sorting office. They all wear their Ivy Grey sweatshirts with pride and to be honest I couldn't have done it without them.
So what do I hope for in 2020? I'd like to source more suppliers and I'm always on the look out for product I know will fit the brief, I'll be visiting trade fairs to look at the latest trends and what will be coming down the line for the later seasons in the year. Believe it or not, I will also be starting to think about our Christmas items early March - crazy isn't it?
So it's onwards and upwards and we'll keep on doing what we love to do - finding gorgeous bits and pieces to make your house your home and sharing them with you.Love Sophie xx
