Ramblers Rejoice. Our new 2012 collection has landed.

Drum roll Anorakers

Just before Christmas we asked you to tell us your favourite hot choc spots for a chance to win a Kissing Stags flask and some Hope & Greenwood hot chocolate. Your entries were amazing – some made us chuckle while others brought a tear to our eyes. But these are the ones that came up trumps.

1. Sue Fisher: “I’d take my flask of hot chocolate everywhere through the chilly winter months. Boot of the car, under desk at work, touchline of pitch at son’s games, watching daughters on swings at park, I could go on….”

2. Alice Beaumont: “Sat in a hot chocolate bubble bath!”

3. Pamela Paul: “Snuggled up under a blanket with my girls, while my husband is outside trying to stop the dog from eating the tent.”

4. Susie Gahan: “In the back of my 1972 VW Camper! Smiling at the other chilly motorists outside!!”

5. Brogaen Maynard: “When I visit my dad, he loves to get wrapped up and go sit with a hot chocolate on his and mums love seat in the garden, telling me old memories.”

Thank you to everyone for all the great entries.

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.

We’re over the moon that Heal’s are now stocking our kissing rabbits range. And what’s more, they’ve taken this lovely picture of our products to use in their summer promotional material. Yippeee.
