Scotland’s Trade Fair Spring 14

We exhibited a couple of weeks ago at our first Trade Fair at the SECC.  It was an excellent showcase of some exciting Scottish businesses, and looking around, we were dreaming of the gift shop we would have in other circumstances – I think most people were.  But the reality of business is that it’s best to focus on your strengths, and so we spent most of the time making some great connections with adult kilt hire shops, sporran makers and shoe suppliers.

We were very excited to find some beautiful dresses made with Harris Tweed, and can’t wait for our order to arrive, so we can add them to our website.  We’re often asked for girls wear to compliment our boy’s kilts, so we’re looking forward to showing them to you as soon as they arrive.

Although we focused on making new connections with suppliers and potential buyers of our baby kilts, we also enjoyed looking at the products that other Scottish businesses are producing.  Many are represented on Shop Scotland – an excellent platform for promoting high quality Scottish made products, including Scottish Sea Glass and The Wee Fudge Company.  My other two favourites were Darach Gifts, (beautiful furniture and gifts made from whisky barrells) and St Andrew’s Pottery.
