Getting noticed in Japan

Nicky Thomson knitted scarves and accessories have now arrived in Japan. Now stocked in the famous Mitsukoshi stores Mitsukoshi Website in Tokyo and we have just had word that the accessories are also featured in a prominent Japanese magazine - check this out.......

Japan Magazine

Japan is a great country and the people are wonderful so it's a real privilege to be able to do business there. I am really looking forward to my upcoming visit to Tokyo once again in November. Busy busy currently getting next years ranges designed and sampled!!

Pulse 2011 - Mary's Comet

Just arrived home from Earls Court and the 2011 Pulse show. Busy, busy, busy as usual, so much so in fact that we ran out of business fliers to give to potential customers...really encouraging given the current economic climate. It was good to catch up with old friends and customers...I'm happy to say many are both :) and we will be in touch with anyone who didn't make it this year to see if you would like to buy into this years collection.

Pulse Stand

Lots of new styles this year and particular favourites were the new 'Soft Boucle' scarves and the 'Little Squares' jackets together will the ever popular 'Curly Contrast scarf, Floaty Coat and the Classic Cape. The happy mistake of the 'Flat' Wiggle Edge scarf has caused quite a stir...It was supposed to be wiggly as usual but for some reason has arrived in the office with rather chic straight edging and ended up as one of a best sellers this show...sometimes things just go your way:)

My faithful assistant 'Doris' was earning her keep this year by attracting customers. She was decked out in a rather eye-catching little number...

Mary Portas (Mary Queen of Shops) was spotted taking and interest before sweeping off to be glamorous somewhere...Her usual 'Mary's Comet' entourage was a little smaller this year. I hope this doesn't mean she doesn't have a new series or that the plan to help the High Street recover is not going well.

I'll post again soon

The footballing Badgers...

I'll be posting something a little more textile orientated in the next week but I just had to mention something about  my sons football team. The Leigh and Bransford Badgers Rovers have been the recipient of my first sponsorship deal. They do look smart in their 'Nicky Thomson' new training tops. Let's hope it brings them good luck next season.  See how the boys get on each week by viewing the Leigh and Bransford Badgers Blog
