I consider myself blessed to be doing something that I love with my life... and for the most part I enjoy the various aspects of living Queen B. There are a couple of exceptions - wick testing and doing trade shows.
To be honest I found trade shows so harrowing, that I stopped doing them for the past couple of years. I found them a rollercoaster of emotions - delight to see existing customers, or people who 'get' what we do and despair when people dismiss the candles as expensive, or just think we're another company selling candles (seemingly EVERYONE, whether fashion designer, skin care brand or homewares label does candles... just not pure beeswax, or made in Australia, or non toxic, or hand-made... oh, I digress!).
Anyway, I decided that we had to be in it to win it and so we're doing the Reed Gift Fair in August in Melbourne. Typically I do the tradeshows on my own - which means lots of time in my own head, missing sales when the stand gets busy and difficulty getting a toilet break! This time I thought I'd throw it out there to any Melbournites who are familiar with Queen B candles and who may have a few hours, a day or even a few days available between 7th - 11th August, who'd like to come play. Life's too short to feel harrowed!
Lunch and a candle gift on me. Our stand is always mind blowingly good because it is done by Joost (of the Greenhouse, Urban Crop, the latest Grange Hermitage launch, the Yellow Pages Hidden Pizza restaurant). Oh, I do go on. Best of all, you get to talk about Queen B candles all day.
