October Rewind – It’s SPOOKY How Fast It Went!

The only thing that truly is scaring us that we have to do an October Rewind already because that month could not have moved any quicker! However, despite it moving fast, Steel Petal Press moved even faster in order to keep up with the hustle and bustle of a growing small business so keep scrolling to see what we were up to in the month of October!

Springin’ Into Action With A New Wholesale Release:
The entire Steel Petal Press team has been in hyper drive to complete our new Spring Release. From designing, to printing, to photography, and much more, it’s a time consuming job but we couldn’t be happier with the new items we’ll be adding to our product offering! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for when those drop for wholesale order and check out our Instagram and Facebook for little sneak peaks, in the mean time!

OOAK December 2018 Show:
It’s that time again when we are gearing up for the December One Of A Kind Show! This is a big show for us as there are lots of shoppers that come through with the hopes of knocking out some Christmas shopping with special and “one-of-a-kind” (see what we did there, *wink wink)* items for their loved ones! As much as we love the bustle of the show and sharing Steel Petal Press goods with the world, it does take a lot of time and energy to proper prepare, set up, and work the show! In the end, despite the exhaustion, it’s always worth it and is a great reminder that an important part of what we want to do with our brand is to connect with people.

Here’s some important details about the show:
– When: December 6th-9th
– Where: 7th floor of the Merchandise Mart
Booth #1021

We hope to see you there 🙂

Our Newest Addition:
Steel Petal Press could NOT be more excited about the latest permanent addition to our little family: Rachel Kopp! We brought her on originally as a temporary part-time retail employee to help us during the holidays, however her positive attitude and hard work quickly convinced us that we wanted her here with us as long as possible! We found Rachel through our Retail Manager, Shelby, as they are close friends and actually first moved to Chicago together about 4 years ago. It’s awesome to find such awesome people and cultivate a passionate and caring work environment that we hope shines through to all of those who stop in and shop with us!

HALLOWEEN:
Last, BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Shayna and our Shipping Manager Rachel are huge fans of Halloween so we made sure to do it up right this year at Steel Petal Press! We coordinated a very cute costume for all of  us working that day:
3 Blind Mice SPP

Rachel, Shayna, and Shelby were…can you guess it!? (3 blind mice, haha!) We received a lot of compliments…although a lot of people also thought we were the girls in Robert Palmer’s “Addicted To Love” music video (here’s a link if you need a refresher). BUT, it didn’t really matter because it was all in great fun. We got to hand out some candy to a vew very stinking cute trick-or-treaters so you could say we had a pretty kickass Halloween!

On to the next month, stay tuned 🙂
