New York Here We Come!

Well, we did it. The Mincing Mockingbird and The Frantic Meerkat took the plunge into the big leagues and applied and were accepted into the National Stationery Show in New York this May. It's the biggest stationery show in the country where buyers from all over come to check out your products and purchase wholesale for their stores. It runs for four days (Sunday through Wednesday) and features over 1100 exhibiting companies and a global attendance of 14,000 buyers. A little scary if you think about it.

So now we have to go into planning mode and get line sheets, wholesale prices and a booth design ready. Luckily we have four months and we already have product lines. And even though the economy isn't great, we decided that we didn't want to wait another year, so we'll be spending a week in springtime in New York. See how official we are -- we're already listed with our booth number on the website here.

Your cards should absolutely be sold in stores. Congratulations! I hope you both have a ton of luck.

Thanks! I hope so. It's a little nerve wracking, with so much planning to do, but we figured we'd jump in with both feet. Plus neither of us have been to NYC, so we're excited about that.
