Retailers across the UK are in for a treat, as Candlelight, one of the UK's leading candle and giftware...
It’s good to be back – and what an issue to start with: the Autumn Fair preview! We have a huge showcase, starting on page 81. So have a flick through, and mark down the stand numbers now to make sure you make the most of your time at the NEC. If you’re travelling to London, we have a Top Drawer Autumn preview on page 61. And if you’re travelling further afield, read all about Bangkok’s STYLE Fair on page 77. Plus, there’s a new show in town! Purify Living will be debuting at the Business Design Centre, Islington, in October – we have the lowdown in our On With The Show pages, so diarise the date and check it out!
With Christmas just around the corner, we also have our Christmas gift guide – Part 2 of two. There’s also a toys & games feature, women’s accessories and, of course, our Brand Spanking New pages – there really are some stunning items out there. I was spoilt for choice as to what to feature!
I look forward to seeing many of you in Birmingham in September. Until then, enjoy the rest of our lovely British summer.

Rachel x Award-winning greetings card brand, Rosie Made A Thing, has done it again with seven new mugs in collaboration with Mclaggan. The range, with humorous illustrations and quotes everyone can relate to, has been flying off the shelves since it was first introduced. Mclaggan, who specialise in bone china mugs, baubles and more for the home and gift market, launched the range in January.
