This Sunday the 22nd January look out for Stand #A210 in Shelbourne Hall in the RDS. It's going to be *all *systems *GO for Hairy Fruit Art participating at this year's Showcase Ireland.
I am no longer a newbie since this is Hairy Fruit Art's second year attending this superb trade fair... and I'm SO excited!
All the paperwork and leaflets are ready to go which include my NEW Irish Seasons notepad collection.
My experience of Showcase last year was splendid and I feel honoured to be taking part once more. This year I have again received the much appreciated support from Local Enterprise Wicklow, and instead of the upstairs Enterprise Zone I'll be
downstairs in the 'Home and Gift'.
I look forward to meeting lots of buyers again along with many other interesting and talented people (of which you meet plenty of at this event) ...I really just can't wait to experience the Showcase buzz all over again!
Activities this week include finalising paperwork and tweaking things on my stand mock-ups on the computer, plus I have set aside a room in the house much to the chagrin of my family, gathering all my products and everything else I will need for the set-up this weekend. My hubbie will be helping me with the set up just like he did last year, he did such a brilliant job before with the set up that I'm feeling very positive.
After Showcase 2016 I did a blog post 'Showcase Ireland a Newbie's Experience" which grabbed a lot of attention online. So in February I promise to do a blog post about this year's experience, it will be interesting to see what I can add to it.
For those attending, you will find Hairy Fruit Art in the lovely Shelbourne Hall where I sat many exams for UCD in my past life! STAND A210 is situated on the very back of the Hall on the right hand side (see RED star on the map below).
