Paris, New York and Atlanta!

Maison et Objet Trade Show, Paris, January 2011

J. Fleet Designs had a very busy January!  We exhibited at trade shows in Atlanta, New York and Paris. All were successful and brought new clients and exciting leads.

In Paris, we were in a new location, Hall 3, Tableware.  This location worked beautifully for us because it’s where our buyers are.  We got a lot of attention from journalists and new clients from around the world — Turkey, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, France, Sicily, Monaco, and Taiwan.  We also had conversations with decorators from Russia, yacht decorators, spa owners, hotel managers, caterers and many tabletop and home accessories stores.   Several spas were interested in the lacquerware because it feels so smooth and soft on the hands and feet.  One owner had us place our feet in one of the salad bowls to see how the product could work in a spa.

New York and Atlanta were challenges with the snow and weather.  Even though Emily lives near the New York show, she had to stay in a hotel one night because it was impossible to get home and back.  But,  there were new orders and contacts so it was worth it!

We are excited about the new markets opening up for us.  There is interest from agents in France, Brazil, Sicily and Brazil to represent us.  J. Fleet Designs is on the move!
