It’s harvest here in Wine Country. Tons of ripe clusters of luscious grapes hang brightly on the vines, begging to be crushed. That’s how we feel standing at NYNow, the last show of our season – crushed.
After weeks and weeks of showing our new items, we are grateful for all of the compliments, and of course orders, from new customers and long standing customers. It’s kind of like harvest. We’ve spent months and months nurturing the new products, bringing them to maturity. Now it’s time to bottle them up and send them out into the marketplace for Holiday gifts.
But unlike the grape harvest, we also have the Winter Trade Shows. That means that while we are shipping out Holiday orders, we are simultaneously growing a new crop of items for 2018. It’s the equivalent of operating a winery in California and Australia simultaneously!
We love what we do. And we love that we can do it in the heart of Wine Country. And don’t worry, once this show is over, there will be a few minutes to catch our breath and enjoy the fruits of our labor on some tasty wine.
