I’ve just had my first holiday in years and took off to explore our beautiful Tasmania. To answer the first question – no, it wasn’t too cold for May!
Being me I couldn’t completely leave my business behind so I packed my wholesale kit with the aim of developing a network of shop customers.
So before I left I got together a list of possible shops to visit and sent them an introduction letter, wholesale brochure and price list.
Some of the shops I sent information to I found online with the Yellow Pages by searching by area and type of business.
The rest of the shops were recommended to me by others and it was interesting how some of them were considered by many to be the best in the area, such as Rose’s Cupboard in South Hobart.
So off to Tassie I went with the car on the Spirit of Tasmania III to start my adventure.
I can really recommend the Spirit and say get your tickets booked. It is great to take your car because you can pack it without worrying about carrying your luggage on and off the plane etc. Plus you save on car hire (having been without a car for 6 years I love the idea of NOT spending money on car hire!).
It is so easy to have your own car to tour round Tasmania. For me it also meant I could easily take extra for my wholesale kit (jewellery ends up weighing quite a bit and gets heavy to carry about).
