10 August, 2009
Its taken just over a week to recover from what seems like the longest trade show in the world (5 days!!!).
Kids inStyle, is a part of Life inStyle and is very impressive indeed. This year it was held in The Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Melbourne and there were over 500 exhibitors.
We were tucked in the far back corner and had built a cardboard house, which was a first for the show. It took us two days and a lot of sweat and tears (mine), but it finally came together (and again…was very impressive indeed) We were voted one of the top 20 best in show by Kids Style File …yay!
Luckly we were situated next to some very cool ‘tradies’ indeed. To our left were the Boofheads girls. They create posh shampoo for kids, and though its not organic is SLS and sulphate free and the perfume (notes of patcholi..which I love) is devine. My daughter (who hated having her hair washed) now has the shiniest hair on the street. I can’t recommend it enough.
Next to them were the very lovely Paris and Louise from Jetti Spaghetti who have created chop sticks for kids, and my 4 year old and 2 year old, love them (and can use them!).
On our right was Gillian from Danish by Design, who had a rug, that was actually a dolls house (its amazing!).
The team consisted of Mim (thank you dear sister) and great friends James and Dean, who helped put the whole thing together.
Thanks everyone, see you in Sydney for next years show!
