A Glee concession will open up at Spring Fair for the first time in 2018, located in Hall 3 alongside Christmas Gifts, Floral and Seasonal Decorations (Hall 2), and Greetings & Gifts (Hall 3). It will deliver a selection of some of the best products from some of Glee’s core product sectors, retaining Glee’s signature boulevard aisle, highly-recognisable branding and with core gardening at its heart.
“Spring Fair is the UK’s No.1 Home and Gift Fair,” says Glee event director, Matthew Mein, “so the audience is already there, ready and willing to do business. Garden centres are already attending Spring Fair, with owner/operators and gift buyers out in force. Glee’s aim is to encourage other category buyers from across the gardening spectrum to maximise their attendance at Spring Fair.
Village Candle will highlight the company’s 25th anniversary celebration at Spring Fair with the launch of a luxury, limited edition candle, along with beautiful giveaways.
The high quality fragrance brand is distributed in the UK by Xystos, ‘the home of flame and fragrance’, whose director, Tom Sykes, hailed its partnership with the American company. “The commitment to quality and brand innovation through not only new and unique fragrances but home care products to further extend the consumer experience makes Village Candle a natural fit for our company,” he said. “We are thrilled to have Village Candle a part of our premier portfolio of products to feature at the show.”
The anniversary candle, True Brilliance, is elegant, luxurious and modern. Presented in custom-made glass embellished with a silvertone top, the special edition expresses the company’s dedication to creating deeper, richer and more layered fragrance experiences.
The British Craft Trade Fair, taking place at the Harrogate showground from April 8 – 10, is a must-visit destination event, showcasing the largest collection of British craft and design in the world.
This beautifully presented trade features of British-made gifts, stationery, jewellery, ceramics, glassware and other top quality, home-spun products. Established over 40 years ago the fair has gone from strength to strength over the years and is a firm favourite with buyers.
British-made products have enjoyed a huge resurgence in popularity with consumers and there have been several government backed marketing campaigns around ‘made in Britain’ that have helped the cause. Upcycling is very much on-trend and consumer awareness has increased massively with the environmental issues that surround us all.
