THANK YOU SO MUCH everyone for coming to our Online Shop Launch Party yesterday! We had a FANTASTIC time celebrating the launch with you all and showing the House of Wandering Silk scarves and baby blankets!! Hope you all had fun!!!
And a HUGE THANK YOU to our sponsors Blossom39 and Unilever! When we were planning the Launch Party we thought it would be great to invite companies and brands that we really love in Tokyo to come to the event and meet our Tokyo Urban Baby guests. To our excitement Sakura, the owner of Blossom39, not only took the time to come and attend the event but she also brought SEVEN GIveaway prizes of LeapFrog toys and Rockabye Lullaby CD’s for the Lucky Door Prizes!!! Thank you so much Sakura!!!
Also, remember the photo of us on Facebook preparing the gift bags and I gave a hint that inside was “something that would make you smell good”? That little something was TWO HUGE bottles of Dove Shampoo and Conditioner from my friend Kanako at Unilever!!!! Thank you so much Kanako!!!! Everyone was so excited!!!
Tokyo Urban Baby also gave away a gorgeous House of Wandering Silk Vintage Sari Bunting in the Lucky Door Prize! Congratulations to the Lucky Winner Ai-san!! We hope you love it and enjoy decorating your baby’s room!!!
Also thank you so much to Chano-ma for letting us hold our Launch Party at your wonderful baby-friendly restaurant. All the staff were super friendly and so open-minded – it was the first time for Chano-ma to have such a large booking of mums and babies, so they were eager to try new things which was fantastic. They let us arrive early to set up the tables and decorations, let us pretty much take over half of the restaurant with speeches and announcements of the Giveaway Prizes, and to our excitement they also let us set up our own little shop! We hung all the House of Wandering Silk scarves and baby blankets on hangers so all of our guests could have a look and try them on in the big mirrors. We also were delighted to make a sale! Thank you Rachel! The beautiful pink and purple floral scarf that you bought was one of my favourites! Hope you love it and can’t wait to see photos:)!!!
And lastly but very importantly thank you to our family and friends who took the day off work to come and help us with the Launch Party preparations, photos, videos, and keeping our babies happy while Tomoko and I chatted with everyone! Thank you Izumi, Aki, Noriko, Jennifer (LOVE the photo board Jennifer thank you!), Sakura, and Yuichi. We couldn’t have done it without your support! Thank you so much!!!
Tomoko and I are now working on the final touches of the online shop before opening it for business. Will announce soon!
