The Great British Exchange
I recently announced on Facebook that I’d received a very exciting email about a very exciting opportunity and I would spill the beans when I had more info. Well here I am about to spill the beans on something very exciting for Milomade.
During my visit to Harrogate for the British Craft Trade Fair in April this year, I was contacted by a new start-up called The Great British Exchange. I signed up to their website for updates and heard from them sporadically throughout the year about their plans to connect retailers with producers within the UK.
They launched at the Harrogate Home & Gift Fair last week and have selected 25 producers from the UK for their launch.
I’m delighted to announce that Milomade is one of these 25 producers!
I received an email from them recently saying:
“We would like to invite you to become one of the very first British producers to join The GBE! Having registered your details with us I would very much like to have you on board as we launch the brand new business. Your enthusiasm for our aims and the quality of your work has endeared us to invite you to be part of our launch.
For the past 12 months we have been working tirelessly to create a bespoke website which will offer independent and small chain retailers the opportunity to easily purchase British products. We are thrilled to be attending Home & Gift Harrogate this weekend where we will be showcasing and launching the brand new site to thousands of retailers… and we want you to be part of it!”
So not only have I been super busy getting my Tax Return done for the Design Trust Business Challenge, I’ve been up late every night adding all my products to the Great British Exchange website. It’s been exhausting, I even fell asleep at my computer last night, but I’m happy to say it’s all done now.
A few tweaks are required here and there where specific product categories need to be created, but all in all my products are all listed and ready and will start getting promoted to retailers as of next week.
I am so excited and looking forward to connecting with more retailers and new wholesale orders coming in soon.
