Hey Everyone. I have some big news that I want to share with all of you...and want you to know without everyone's support, this would not be possible. The summer was spent with trips back and forth to New York, and yes we have an incredible announcement...after months and months of negotiations, we were just able to sign our big deal with one of the largest bedding, quilt and bath companies. Featuring the Carolyn Westbrook Home brand of bedding, for adult and kids, and bath, for rollout with major retailers in Spring 2012.
I have been busy, designing, creating, and merchandising the new line, and the showroom. It is an amazing and huge showroom, in NYC on Fifth Avenue. So, all of the fabrics that I have carried around in my mind for years, as well as the bits and pieces that we brought back from Paris, have all come together to create beautiful bedding and pillows. I go back this week to do a final walkthrough of the showroom and see the final display, before the stores come in next week. I wish that everyone could be there with me, as we see this for the first time. How great would that be?? It is truly unbelieveable.
Everyone keep their fingers crossed that the retailers will love the line. I will try and take some pics while I am there, so that you all will be able to see it for yourselves.
Want to tell all of you to keep living your dreams. Even and especially when that seems impossible.
This week...I am in NYC and then off to Roundtop Antiques Week. We open Sept. 23rd-October 1st at Zapp Hall in Warrenton Texas. The motto here is "Come for the shopping, stay for the Party!" Right outside my door is gourmet comfort food from Royers Cafe and it is always a good time for a glass of champagne from the "Bubble Lounge."
Also, I am doing a book signing with my friends from Leftovers Antiques in Brenham TX Sept. 24th at 6pm. They have an amazing store and should be a great party!
I hope to see each and every one of you there...cannot wait. xoxo Carolyn
