kiswa @ the Design Centre Tasmania

kiswa is glad to announce our new stockist - the Design Centre Tasmania. Rye Dunsmuir, the Retail Gallery Manager, came and visited us on his recent trip South and, after a short meeting, left with a swag of kiswa products. We would like to thank Rye and the Design Centre for their support and hope that this is the start of a successful relationship. They were also kind enough to send us some photos of the kiswa display, which we think looks great.

Crumping with Crompton

Last weekend kiswa attended one of designedobjectstasmania's Professional Development Workshop Seminars on Entrepreneurship and Branding hosted by Abi Crompton of Third Draw Down. We were given a history of Abi's success and a rundown of some of her favorite objects' which she is currently selling, including what she sees as their prominent design features. She was kind enough to give us some advice on how to market, what we are now calling, our multipurpose pencil case (as everyone loves them but responds "its a pity, I don't use pencils any more" or "their too nice for pencils"). We'll keep you posted on the developments. We would like to thank DOT for organising the workshop and Abi for her expertise and advice.

Liisa with Abi Crompton

kiswa in October

After having almost three months off, kiswa is back. We began October '10 with a huge weekend and two markets. We had a glorious Saturday @ Salamanca.

And then continued on Sunday @ The Market:

Its good to be back doing the markets and we hope that this is the beginning of a good spring and an excellent summer for Tasmania's markets.
