Christmas markets 2015

Posted on December 29, 2015 by Toothpicker

 
Three weekends of Christmas market at the Barbican Centre

Design shopping at London design festival

Posted on October 12, 2014 by Toothpicker

My last entry on the London design festival is related to shopping... As someone who is involved in the retail business, shamefully, I don't think I am out and about enough, and so the design festival was gave me an opportunity to see what is happening in the design retail world.
 

The Saturday [...]

I can't say that I have been very aggressive ( it's not so natural for me) in promoting the e-shop since the launch about 8 months ago. I am still learning, trying things out and finding my feet in the competitive world of e-tailing.
Since the East London design show in Dec, I [...]

East London design show 2011

Posted on December 15, 2011 by Toothpicker

I was meant to write about the East London design show right after it ended but I caught a bad flu which disrupted all my work schedules. I almost thought I had to pull out of the show because I was so poorly! I missed half of Friday but luckily, other designers [...]
