While it’s not over yet, one more day to go, we are loving the Sydney Gift Fair. What a terrific bunch of happy and proactive retailers. Newsagents, gift shop owners, jewellers and others … all upbeat and working on growing their businesses. Not getting caught up in the doom and gloom of others including the Australian media.

This is an excellent trade show for this time of the year. It is delivering excellent business for us. We are thrilled to have the show to ourselves in some of our retail niches.

What is most interesting about this show is the diversity of products on offer. This gets retailers thinking beyond their four walls. It puts their head space into a positive forward thinking trajectory. Some of the discussions we have had about business have been wonderful … valuable.
