I love traveling to far-flung places to source new products, meet with existing suppliers to look at their new creations and place orders. It is an exhilarating part of running Turquoise Port. Sometimes is takes ages before my new orders arrive in Tokyo. This is partly due to all of Turquoise Port’s products being handmade by skilled artisans and creators as well the long journey from their countries of origin to the Showroom.
In some cases months pass before I can lay eyes on the items I selected. Once my orders finally arrive on my doorstep, I open the crates and boxes with nervous excitement.
Are the items as I remembered them? Has the whole order made it in one piece (a huge box of hand-painted ceramics once arrived shattered into bits and pieces…)? Are the colours and shapes of the products the way I ordered them?
Some orders have recently arrived and are ready to be released into the Showroom – home decoration and accessories with quite a few one-off items!
Subscribers to my mailing list will be the first to find out and will have first dibs too! The release email will go out to my mailing list on Friday, 22nd February. All items that are not snapped up by my subscribers will be released via Facebook and Instagram on Tuesday, 26th February.
