Whoopee!! Top Drawer was a brilliant start to 2019. It was lovely to catch up with so many long-established customers and get such positive reports of successful Christmas trading seasons; really encouraging to hear how well so many of you are doing in these challenging times. And we’re chuffed to get such great feedback on how the healthy sell-through of our products and the quality of service we give is supporting you all. Thank you – that’s what we’re here for!

It was also fab to meet many of the new customers we started working with in 2018 and, of course, the brand, spanking, shiny new customers who were lured on to our stand by the combination of our jubilant menagerie of products and the siren-like glow of the gorgeous, mustard yellow back drop. The photo of our glorious, yellow stand doesn’t quite do it justice – it was like being inside a giant, mustard daffodil. No wonder we’re full of the joys of Spring!

We mailed our 2019 catalogue just before Christmas. Thank you for the great feedback – we’re really proud of it and love the idea of you browsing through it over a coffee (or something stronger) planning the season ahead. Speaking of which, I can’t believe it’s nearly February. The days are already feeling a little longer and the brilliant, green shoots of bluebells and other spring bulbs are bursting out boisterously left, right and centre. Doubtless, you are girding yourselves for gearing up for Valentine’s Day. If you realise you’re missing out on swooning swans or whimsical folk art love, let us know!
