We’ve just come back from Christmas Gift and Fashion Fair, Cheltenham. We can’t quite believe how quickly it’s come around and gone again! And that Christmas is just a couple of months away! The show was based at Cheltenham racecourse, from Thursday 18th October to Sunday 21st October. If you missed it this time, don’t worry we’ll be there again next year!
We had wide range of Love Brownies products on our stand, including all of our flavours of individual brownies and brownie bites. We’ve also had some great gift ideas, from hot chocolate spoons and Kilner jars full of juicy morello cherries soaked in Kirsch to our brand-new ‘Earning Brownie Points’ apron! Our new vegan brownie went down a treat and all 3 flavours sold out by Saturday. Don’t worry – we’ll make sure we bake more for next years Christmas Gift and Fashion Fair as lots more Vegan Brownie flavours being tested at the moment!
Our Show Friends
We always make lots of friends at these shows. We really do treasure the returning loyalty of our customers too . It’s great to see all the familiar faces that have been buying our brownies over the past few years. We also get to see our lovely friends from other companies doing so well. This year our stand was next to Cotswold Gold. Charlie Beldam, the founder, has been producing the highest quality rapeseed oil since 2010. The rapeseed is grown on his family’s farm in Worcestershire. Cotswold gold do a range of high quality extra virgin cold pressed rapeseed oil, infused oils, dressings and mayonnaise. If chutneys, preserves and other luxurious food gifts are your thing then have a look at The Carved Angel, based in Plymouth. They are most famous for their Christmas pudding, but they also have a vast selection of preserves, curds, pickles and chutneys. And finally, one for the cheese-lovers out there! The Truckle Cheese Co. in Cambridge do the finest cheeses, from Shropshire Blue to Wensleydale with lemon and honey, all cased in a brightly coloured wax coating. Their cheese and chutney hampers look amazing – we’ve put them on our Christmas list!
Don’t worry if you missed the Christmas Gift and Fashion Fair this time, we’ll be back next year. Or why not come see us at another show? We’ve got stalls at The Christmas Fair at Ripley (22nd– 25th November) and Ascot (29th November – 2nd December) to supply you with chocolatey treats all day long!
