There are some excellent exhibitions and gift fairs in London where you really can find some unique products. We have discovered many interesting up and coming businesses as well as long established companies that are perhaps not so readily found online.
Saturday 20th April is a fun day in London as it is the Feast of St George’s fair in Trafalgar Square. A free day of fun for all the family with many excellent stall holders exhibiting their wares. A particular favourite of ours is a company called Bobbins. Established for over 25 years, Bobbins sells wonderful home furnishings, ranging from duvet covers and bedspreads to tablecloths, needlepoint rugs and pure cotton nightwear. Jackie from Bobbins will be exhibiting at the Feast of St George’s fair as well as many of the other events listed below.
The Spirit of Summer fair is at Olympia between 15th – 18th May. An very well organized event where you can spend between one and four days immersing yourself in everything from interior decoration, fashion accessories, books, antiques and art, games, toys and presents. The exhibitors are very carefully chosen to ensure that only the finest products and services are on offer at the Spirit of Summer fair. It is always very well attended and attracts thousands of visitors.
The next Asthma gift fair at The Hurlingham Club will be held on Thursday 10th October. There will be a private view on Wednesday 9th October. Approximately 70 stall holders sell their goods ranging from toys, boutique clothes and accessories to gourmet foods and fine home furnishings.
The Country Living Christmas fair this year takes place between 30th October and 3rd November at the Business Design Centre in Islington. We have some apartments within walking distance to the Business Design Centre on City Road which are perfect for both stall holders and visitors to the show. It is often a good idea to stay a night of two in London as these events are often so big, it is hard to take it all in, in one day alone (and to carry your shopping!)
The Spirit of Christmas at Olympia this year will be between 5th – 10th November. This is one not to miss and you could most certainly complete all your Christmas shopping under one very big roof! A lovely array of festive delights and presents to tempt and we are sure you would find something for even the trickiest person for whom to buy!
