I am proud to say that Macpherson Toy House attended its first media event. It was exciting! Tons of talking, tons of people. Lots of editors, bloggers, and tons of good exposure. Hopefully with a little bit of luck we will be picked up in somebodies holiday gift guide, or t.v segment. I was there from 8am to 7pm, and when I got home I fell asleep right away in my clothes without washing my face or brushing my teeth until 9am the next morning. I didn't realize I was so drained! I woke up to 4 boxes of new merchandise, time to unpack, price, steam, rearrange, and create barcodes! ..... and its only Wednesday :)
Our first look book is complete!! I am happy to say thank God this week is over! What a stressful experience. I never thought 12 pictures, and 12 little descriptions would be so difficult. Anybody who has said this is easy has obviously never done it. This is all very new to me. I am however, extremely happy with the way it came out (thank you Tony Smith!). It was hard narrowing it down to only 12 items as I have hand picked everything myself. Every piece is special. Every piece in our store in handmade, and has a heirloom quality about it. Our items are meant to last, meant to be passed on from generation to generation. The whole concept of our store is to stay away from anything that is mass produced, plastic, and yes things that are made in China. I have made a conscious effort to support local talent and carry as many things as I can that are made in Canada. There is a link to our look book at the bottom of our website or you can click right here. Please have a look and let me know what you guys think. It is perfect for the holidays!
