Pulling together

There’s is no greater term to describe the last two years than the buzzword of 2020 - unprecedented. As 'unprecedented’ sums this time period up perfectly. Just as we were getting our head’s round BREXIT, then came the pandemic, then the global supply chain issues, and now the untimely Russian invasion of Ukraine. As independent retailers, community and a sense of belonging is of utmost importance to you, so the conflict and the suffering of Ukrainians will undoubtedly be causing heightened anxiety. Head over to my blog on page 118 to discover ways to help. In times of crisis, it’s time to pull together.

Talking of crises, the ongoing call for environmental action is never far from our minds, so this issue we have an eco-friendly feature that looks at products that are good for the planet and look great in the home – win/win! But of course, that’s not all. I also spotlight baby gifts – a trend that never goes out of fashion – as well as bath & body products, tabletop & glassware, and houseware.

As always, please do get in touch with any news and new products you want to shout about, or simply to say hi!

Enjoy the issue,

Louise Prance-Miles, Editor
