Another trade show, this time it's Summer Fair at Excel in London. This is the second year of the show and from what we have seen whilst setting up it looks fantastic. We have spent two days and all is finished and ready for Sunday, so hopefully we will see you there.All the new jewellery looking lovely hanging from a tree branch. This would make for a great display idea in a gift store, if you do not have room for a display cabinet simply paint a branch (fallen of cousre) and hang on chains above your counter. Tie and knot the jewellery onto the branch with ribbon and you don't have to worry about any going for an unauthorised walk! The lights reflecting off the glass beads would make for a real magnet and talking point in the store.
