Paper High is moving to a new warehouse. This week the madness will begin for real! We’ve spent the last couple of weeks packing up all of our stock, loading pallets and now were all packed up and ready for the big move. Mark is just waiting to get the keys and it will be all systems GO GO GO!
This move has been a long time coming, we’ve expanded so many of our product ranges over the years with lots of new ranges like homeware lines such as mango wood photo frames, antique glass christmas baubles new rugs (anjaya etc) and not to mention our very successful range of goat leather bags, there is the feeling that we have now out grown Brighton’s Big Yellow Self Storage building that we have been in for the last seven years. We have taken over a good 30% of their ground floor, if not more! Going from 2 small rooms that Mark and Claire started off with to taking over 13 of Big Yellow’s biggest rooms!
So Mark and Claire have decided to upgrade to their very own warehouse located in the lovely East Sussex town of Lewes. We’re all looking forward to being able to spend our lunch breaks walking down the beautiful cobbled streets, and surrounded by some lovely scenic views. We all went for a meeting at the new pad a short while ago to discuss floor plans and specific requests for things like a very nice open plan staff room! Warehouse décor too; we even talked about getting a graffiti artist in to do the walls which I personally think is pretty cool and something you wouldn’t expect to see in a working warehouse.
Nevertheless we will all be sad to say goodbye to the wonderful staff at Big Yellow Brighton; the one and only Nick Browning who first sold the space to Mark and Claire back in the early days, the very helpful Sarah Pretty the current manager, the lovely Tom Sibanda, and the newest addition to the Big Yellow team, Carly Joyner. They have put up with us over the years and been witnesses to our successful growth into to the company Paper High is today. Thanks guys for being the absolute best! We’re going to miss you all! They may all get one of our beautiful leather journals for being such helpful people over the years!
So, it’s all a bit all over the place here at the moment but still exciting new times ahead! Hopefully it won’t be long now so that we can get into the warehouse ready for Christmas. We have added a few more products to our wholesale range. Our woollen socks sold so well we thought why not sell them at wholesale and we will also be adding our funky animal hats as well.
So that’s me out for now we’ll be back soon hopefully when we’re at our new place. In the mean time please check out our brand spanking new website!
Remember, it is new so there may be a few glitches here and there, please let us know xx
