John and I are safely back from an amazing buying trip in India. We had been really pleased to have budget flights on Kingfisher Airways, but had been rather worried when in India to read in the Indian press of many cancelled flights due to financial troubles. However in the event all was well and we even arrived in Heathrow a little bit early! We are very excited as we have seen some of our Fair Trade suppliers and heard about their social projects as well as sourcing some brilliant new goodies for Winter 2012.
Anybody who showed at the Handicraft Fair in Greater Noida did well thanks mostly to many new buyers from China and Japan. Noah's Ark did particularly well and this has meant that his ongoing water filter project can continue.
Now, of course we can't wait for our samples to arrive and the photography to start for next season.
