We did it! It was a crazy ride but we survived our first Christmas in the big bad world of retail.
The support we have received in the 3.5 months that we have been trading has been phenomenal and I guess now it is time to reflect on what went well, what needs to be tweaked and our plans moving forward into 2019.
I’ve never been any good at keeping New Year resolutions, so when Kate from All about the Om popped in and we started talking about her Frome based Yoga classes and gorgeous new sweatshirts the phrase “New Year, New Intentions” stuck with me.
I fully intend to embrace collaborative working and showcase my fab suppliers to the max this year. Keeping consistency with what Fromie Gifts has to offer, and also having a cheeky freshen up to get all of you excited about some brand new products.
I have not 1, not 2, but 7 NEW SUPPLIERS, whose amazing products I can’t wait to share with you. It never ceases to amaze me what a plethora of talent we have here in Frome. I will be drip feeding them on our Instagram page @fromiegifts in the next month or 2, so watch this space!
2019 will also see Fromie Gifts continue to build relationships with local businesses to make the art of saying “Thank you” a personal, local and easy process.
We currently work with 4 local companies and are looking to increase this to 10 over the next year.
This is what Gooding Accounts in Westbury had to say:
“Wanted to share the love of appreciation of the gift you sent on our behalf.
Well done and thank you Nicky!
It is proving very beneficial to us having you to help us build and maintain our customer service and relationship with our clients!”
Drop me an email if you are interested in finding out more about how we can help your company over 2019.
In the meantime, embrace this New Year. May it hold exciting times and valuable lessons for us all. Enjoy!
From me. To you.
