WHY AUTUMN FAIR 2018?
The must-attend buying event of the season, Autumn Fair is where UK and international retailers come to stock up for Christmas, New Year and beyond. Brand exposure to a broad spectrum of buyers from across the UK retail industry is just one of the benefits of exhibiting:
• Independent gift retailers
• Department store buyers
• Online retailers
• Multi-store high street retailers
• Independent home retailers

Autumn Fair enables us to showcase our handmade bespoke products to both new and existing customers. We have noticed an increased demand from our buyers, especially independent retailers, who are constantly looking for new and unique products that have a story behind them. The handmade in Cornwall aspect is a key selling point for us.
