As you probably know, our Giving & Living trade show was originally due to open today. We’re so pleased we made the decision to postpone it until May rather than be forced to cancel it by the current lockdown. We’re delighted with the new dates, as the show is now perfectly timed before the summer season, when staycations are predicted to boom. It’s a great opportunity for you to stock up with the very latest trends in gifts, souvenirs and home accessories and make the most of an influx of tourists to the South West.
We know that many of you are planning and buying now, so coming along to the show in May will give you the chance to select complementary ranges and top up your existing stock. With that in mind, we thought we’d give you a little taster of some of the companies and products you can expect to see:
BlueLily925Silver are a small family run company, with a growing range of in-expensive .925 sterling silver jewellery, including this lovely elephant pendant. They currently have amongst their ranges a new collection of 14mm hoop charms. Their jewellery comes complete with a white, branded, re-cycled paper box.
HK White have a gorgeous South West Coastal Collection of mugs, and are currently working on new designs ready for the show in May. They also transform iconic landscapes from across the South West into a range of other British-made products such as tankards, tea towels, prints and greeting cards.
The Dartmoor Skincare Company produce an award winning range of natural, cruelty free and vegan skincare, as well as launching a refillable hand sanitiser spray this year. During 2020 they donated over 300 products for front line NHS staff and Derriford Hospital and Tavistock Hospital.
Broadlands Pottery is a handmade ceramic gift company based in Gloucestershire. With their small dedicated team, they produce gifts that you and your customers will love, and can also create bespoke products for you.
In the meantime, we’re looking forward to getting to whatever the “new normal” is, and seeing you all in person in May. Why not register to attend now?
