Last weekend the Creeper Crawlers team went to England for our first trade show of 2015, the 3 day Harrogate International Nursery Fair and in true Creeper Crawlers style there was a little bit of drama.
After having spent over two hours filling the car to the brim and squeezing in all that we needed for the trade show we were ready to catch the ferry from Dublin to Holyhead. Everything went perfectly until we reached the other side.
As we were preparing to disembark for our 3 hour journey to Harrogate someone kindly pointed out that we had a flat tyre. Naturally panic set in as we had to get the car unloaded to access the spare and reloaded before the boat filled up and headed back to Dublin. With the help of the Stena Line Staff, who we can’t thank enough for their help and Creeper Crawlers own Geoffery, the car was unloaded in no time – only to find no spare tyre.
Apparently on some cars the spare tyre is under the car… whoops…. who knew?? 🙂
While all the drama and hard work was happening Creeper Crawlers CEO Ollwyn made sure to lend a helping hand by talking lots of pictures for our blog and facebook 🙂
Having finally arrived in Harrogate we spent the day setting up our stand, we were lucky enough to have a great location and to be beside our friends from Snooze Shade and Gummee Glove.
We had a great few days at the show, seeing some old friends and making new ones. Most importantly we had phenomenal feedback on our Easy Grip Crawl Suit and our new Premium Bamboo Collection, we even added some new international retailers.
We would be lying if we said it was all hard work though, we somehow managed to squeeze in a bit of “networking” over cocktails as well as attending the Banta Awards where the amazing Jason Manford kept us all entertained.
Why can’t all work outings end with a martini? <3
