What a fun-filled, festive time we had at the Spirit Of Christmas Fair 2018 last week (29th October – 4th November). The event, at London Olympia, was home to over 700 independent brands showcasing unique Christmas gifts not found on the high street.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by, chatted to us and bought from us!
As well as increasing our own brand awareness, we’re constantly on the lookout for other like-minded, cruelty-free, ethical and natural brands. Here are some lovely companies that we came across and wanted to share with you!
BALI BALM – A luxurious range of sleek and stylish lip balm for him & her. With four unique flavours, this cruelty-free balm is made using vegan and 100% natural, plant-based ingredients.
DESAVERY – An organic skincare range created by the lovely Andrea Dinnick, who I had the pleasure of meeting and discussing the benefits of her fabulous products. Made with the purest ingredients sourced sustainably, like prickly pear seed oil, her products aims to nourish the skin, as well as impact the mood and mind. 5% of profits from the STELLAR Daily Serum is donated to literacy and medical programmes provided for women working where the prickly pear seed oil is sourced.
NORSE – Founded by Ian, NORSE creates a 100% natural range of grooming products for the bearded, smooth-faced and moustached men. All products are handmade in the UK – and smell great!
SPAZA – Simple eco-friendly household products handmade by women working in home industries in South Africa. We fell in love with these beautiful plastic-free, long lasting & machine washable dish covers, available as a set of 4 in various sizes.
It was so inspiring meeting lots of wonderful brands. All in all, a great show for discovering other small, independent retailers.
Remember, 'When you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance!'
