Coolbags go silly

Most of our coolbags are now half price at an amazing £27.50. Ridiculously silly, we’re sure you’ll agree!

Top Drawer Spring

Behold, photographs of stand Anorak at this year’s Top Drawer Spring. The first trade event of the season, the show also entailed a quite a few firsts for Anorak:

1. It was the first time we showed our new Spring/Summer product range (including a new coolbag & mini animal washbags)
2. It was the first time we had a dedicated wholesale catalogue (hot off the printer the day before)
3. It was the first time we took a stand 7 metres long! (and slightly less products to fill the space!?)
4. It was the first time we used wooden crates and trestles to fill said stand (no more heavy plinths to lug)
5. It was the first time we forked out for a data capture pen (money very well spent)
6. It was the first Anorak tradeshow of 2011 (a glimpse into the coming year for retail)
7. It was the first time Leno the van driver dropped off our wares (prior to a spot of Latin dancing in his local ballroom)

The good news is that the show was a resounding success, albeit a very hectic and slightly stressful one. And what’s more, the early signs are that Anorak’s new products are going to be very well received in 2011.

Anorak choccies

Apologies for the lack of blog activity Anorakers. We had a mega-busy build up to Christmas and unfortunately Messing About Outside has taken somewhat of a back seat of late. Our pre-Christmas activities included:

– Packing Christmas orders
– Manning the market
– Designing our spring/summer 2011 collection
– Moving our stock
– Building a new website (coming soon)

Somehow, in between all this Wintry mayhem, Anorak’s very own Laurie & Matt managed to turn their hands to a spot of chocolateering, opting to hand-make their friends and family some Christmas confectionery. Here’s some pictures of the choccies (before the Christmas munchers pounced!).

Nice and neat...

Voila! The gifts are ready!
