Hunting for treasure in the Top Drawer!

Lucy at Top Drawer 2013Early Sunday morning, powered only by coffee and chocolate croissants, Andrey, Hugo and I (Lucy) set off to the ‘Top Drawer’ and ‘Home’ exhibitions in London in search of new products for the new year. With over a thousand exhibitors we had our work cut out for us separating the wheat from the chaff to find the best, the sparkliest and the freshest jewellery, accessories, ceramics and homeware for our customers. We were keeping a special eye out for interesting gifts for men, which are all too elusive on the highstreet.

We wove up and down the rows and rows of stalls, stopping only halfway for a pitstop panini, before trudging on again, our tote bags weighed down with promotional material. From silk scarves to Swarovski crystals, tweed handbags to teapots, lampshades to leather satchels we searched every inch of Earls Court for the perfect gifts, ever mindful of our priorities; uniqueness, quality and affordability.

We dragged ourselves along the last aisle of the ‘home’ exhibition and slumped down on a designer sofa to discuss which suppliers had made the grade. Over the next few weeks you should start to see some of the fruits of our labour appearing in Podarok. We are particularly excited to be getting in beautiful bright scarves, bags and satchels, fabulous country chic tweed accessories and gifts for men, and last but not least expanding our jewellery range to provide more affordable jewellery but also for those wanting to treat themselves, gorgeous unique pieces to treasure for a lifetime.

We hope you are as excited as we are. Come down to Bene’t Street to see the Spring Range coming soon!
