Week 3 in Qing

An exciting and busy week all at the same time!

While Anne-Marie is in China, very busy with the buying trip, some of the furniture’s getting prepared to go to customers. Early morning today one of the sideboards is being picked up and is on its way to Scotland!

This week, we have made a customer very happy. He bought a beautiful red wardrobe with golden butterflies on it, it’s gorgeous! We will be delivering it later this week and I can’t wait to see it in his house.

The stockroom looks very good after a week’s hard work, a lot of space for the new furniture’s and ceramics now. It has really changed the feel to the place.

The upcoming week will be a week with a lot of deliveries to customers, we will make our customers happy, which is what we are good at in Qing!

Exciting week

Good afternoon everybody

What an exciting week this was, a new shipment came in with lots of new furniture. A few custom built pieces went the same week to their buyers, the rest is in our shop where it is showing of its beauty.

Not only for Qing was this an exciting week, but also for Said who had his first week of work here. His first workday was when the shipment came in and he really proved himself with his hard work.

Mao Ping went back to Beijing to see his wife and baby girl, Anne-Marie is joining him today and together they will go to Yue’s furniture studio as well as go to see Li’s new ceramics, how exciting!

As Anne-Marie and Mao Ping are gone the interns will take over Qing for the next ten days. Isn’t it great that they trust us and give us the opportunity to show what we can do?

Come and give Qing a visit while we look after the shop!

New Adventures

Hi Everybody

This week was a whole new adventure for me. Anne-Marie took me to a business breakfast meeting, I’ve never been to something like that before. It was very interesting and I enjoyed it a lot. I saw this as a chance to get to know new people and hear about their businesses. My goal was to keep the conversation going and to keep asking as many questions as I could think of about their business, or about themselves, so I could improve my talking and listening skills. It was a good new experience and I got lots of practice. What I also did for the first time was try a scotch egg. Anne-Marie baked scotch eggs for the Bakery Club that she belongs to and saved one for me, in my opinion a scotch egg (baked by A-M!) is absolutely tasteful! 

Qing Art has changed displays this week, the counter is in front of the shop now instead of at the back so you can see us better when you walk by. It was a nice challenge to move every piece of furniture to where we wanted it to be. Everything has a lovely place now and every piece can show of its beauty. Don’t be shy, have a look, let us know what you think of the beautiful new displays ;) .
