This is TOTALLY off topic for a cake forum, but I'm hoping someone can help me as this is the only international forum I participate in, so seems like it might be a good place to ask.

My son was involved in a photo-shoot for a children's clothing brand here called Pumpkin Patch. They tell me he made it into the wholesaler catalogue, which is sent overseas to stores only - not for consumers. Because it contains wholesale prices, they are not able to give me a copy of the catalogue. As you can imagine, I'm rather keen to get a copy of it so that I can burst with pride looking at my little boy in print!

So I thought I'd see if any of you lovely ladies might happen to work in a childrens clothing store, and if you do, maybe you buy from Pumpkin Patch and have the catalogue?

Hi,
There is a pumpkin patch shop in the capital where I live (cardiff, wales)
Are you able to view their website? this is the uk website,
http://www.pumpkinpatch.co.uk/
Is he on here?

I can't see him, but I know on our local pumpkin patch site he appears then disappears. And the UK site definitely has some of the clothes for sale that he modelled.

lol... all of a sudden I feel silly asking about this, but I'm a proud Mum, and we won't be doing this kind of thing again, so it would be nice to have a keepsake.

Well I've got some digital photos, but I'd just love to have the catalogue in print, that seems like a pretty special thing to have for his memory box.

These are the ones I got from the website & a couple that they said they were allowed to send me:

Oh yeah, I totally understand, holding a copy of the catalogue in your hand!
Oh this is so annoying!

Are you able to view the online catalogue? It says its the fashion issue Autumn and Winter 2011

I'm not sure if he's in there though.

They said he only made it into the wholesale one, which they wouldn't publish online due to the wholesale prices.

lol... thank you so much for having a look for me, it's funny how things like this become important to a Mum!

Sorry I couldn't be more help icon_sad.gif The shop in the capitol city is really small and isn't like wholesale prices, I've gone on their website and changed "my location" to see if any other catalogues would come up, but none of his pics were in there icon_sad.gif

Sorry about that! The photos you've shown me though are gorgeous! Especially that last pic of him! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks ladies icon_smile.gif No, he didn't get to keep the clothes. Some of them hadn't been released to the market yet, some of them had cuts in them (samples). We got a voucher to spend in their shop though.
