Boutique buyers looking for unique British-made products are invited to take part in new digital event Curated Craft Online this 19-21 March.
An exclusive new trade buying event for the artisan sector, the simple and effective sourcing platform will enable indie retailers to browse high quality products from the comfort of their screens. The digital event is not intended to replace physical trade shows, but does offer a way for busy retailers to expand their product sourcing without having to travel.
Brands participating in the event span various home and accessories categories. Key jewellery exhibitors include Katherine Bree, Judith Brown, ContraryMary Designs, Suzanne Claire, Essemge Designer Jewellery, Erika Price Artisan Jewellery, Kate Trouw, Fifi & the Peacock, Photofinish Jewellery, A Little Trinket, Slate and Silver, Stephanie Hopkins and Sarah L Hamilton. Shelley Faye Lazar, meanwhile, offers a range of beautiful silk scarves.
The online event boasts interactive show features such as a live ‘Hangout’ for all participants. ‘Golden Ticket’ prizes worth £150 each will also be offered to retailers to encourage engagement with participating brands. Buyers taking the most actions – be it clicking on an image, visiting an exhibitor website, watching a video or downloading a catalogue – will be rewarded with a Golden Ticket at the end of each day. The £150 prize money can then be spent on stock with Curated Craft exhibitors.
All brands will also provide buyers with an exclusive show offer such as free delivery on orders above a certain value or a discount on orders placed at the show.
