With Christmas looming, we’re sure we’re not the only ones struggling to find the perfect gifts for friends and family. You know something new, that little bit different, and most importantly, something they don’t have already! Your customers are probably just the same. Well there’s a wide range of new products being launched at the show in January, so you can stock up for the year ahead and keep them happy for birthdays, Easter, Mother’s Day, the Summer season and even next Christmas! Here’s just a selection of the new products and ranges that our exhibitors are bringing to the show next month:
For those of you with magpie tendencies, there’s a lot of new sparkly things to be found. Silver Jewellery Cavern will be showing a beautiful range of blue opal jewellery for the first time, together with lots of other brand new lines being launched at the show.

Sea Gems Cornwall, a family run company with over 35 years experience in design-led jewellery and gifts, are launching brand new and exciting collections for Spring 2019; beautifully presented, high quality original products for boutiques, gift shops and jewellers who are looking for something different, but at affordable prices. Jewellery is not just for women though, and Zamsoe has announced the launch, at this year’s event, of its new men’s jewellery brand “Style of the Wild” – jewellery for men with the spirit of adventure.
If you’d prefer not to accessorise with jewellery, then Oh-so Gorjuss, the lovely additions to the Santoro London collection combine whimsical style with charming flair for a delightful new look! Beautiful fashion items have joined the range, with velvet effect cotton, soft satin and leatherette embellishments delicately detailing each piece. From wallets and purses to rucksacks and shoulder bags, find Sugar and Spice, Little Red Riding Hood and The Hatter in the collection. They have also launched some beautifully presented giftware, including treasured trinket trays, wonderful wall clocks, must-have money boxes and boxed planners for ultimate organisation!

These are handcast from the finest quality pewter, in the UK, and offer an imaginative way to accessorise any outfit.
