Our bank, HSBC, have nominated us for "Start up Stars of the Year", which they look for the best "young" businesses, under 4 years old.
In its 10th year, HSBC single out what they feel as the best example of entrepreneurial excellence, and award the winners with £50,000 worth of business grants. The company Ferrari is not that far away then!!
One of our Picture Cases has been shortlisted in the 2010 Gift of the year award.
From the "Celebration" range, our Bridal "Just Married" case has been chosen from hundreds of entries, to go through to the 2nd round, with the final 3 winning and comended products being chosen by the Judges on 21st June.
Fingers crossed we make the last 3!
Picture Case has its first agent, who will look after our folk North of the boarder.
Lesley Robertson will start immediately, looking after all our existing retailers in Scotland, and hopefully, bring new ones on board.
If you would like the opportunity of being an Agent for our exciting Brand, in other parts of the UK, then contact us by phone or email. We would love to hear from you.
We had a great 3 days at the Scottish trade fair, meeting lots of new retailers and some old ones. Our full range was on display for the first time, and got plenty of re-action from buyers and passers by alike.
The canny Scots took advantage of placing orders on the day, and getting last years prices, which resulted in us selling out of the Scottish rampant lion (pictured left with Suzanne, Maureen and the King of Scotland!)
Celtic and Rangers cases proved equally popular, as did the "Cuties and pals"!
