Our First Trade Fair!
Products, leaflets and flowers.
Last month we headed to our first trade show in Leipzig Germany. Reputed to be the biggest gift fair outside of the UK…we thought it a good place to make our trade fair debut! Leipzig, a place we’d not heard of before is located in Eastern Germany in Saxony, famous for classical music composers and one of Europe’s oldest Opera Houses…just as we booked our exhibition slot the next day it was featured as a top travel destination for 2023 in The Guardian! We travelled by car from the UK fully loaded up with product and display stands. Very nervous about the event and what to expect!
“We found a brilliant Afghani restaurant and whilst we were meant to be travelling on a budget did treat ourselves to a meal there and the food was to die for!”
The journey took us into France, across Belgium, Holland and then into Germany, 4 countries in one day!!
We had a lot of fun styling our stand and meeting fellow exhibitors and it was great to network with new wholesale clients..many coming from Berlin, which isn’t so far from Leipzig.

Sadly, as we were so busy and couldn’t leave our little girl with grandparents for too long we didn’t add on an extra day to actually see Leipzig…but hey there’s always next year!
