The current health crisis has resulted in a massive expansion in online shopping and interest in home decor. While the development of vaccines will mean a way out of lock-downs and constraints in movement, the change in consumer habits and the expansion of this new customer segment of online users means there are increasing opportunities for suppliers of products.
The company, based in the UK, is looking for innovative products, but also products need to be small in size for easy posting.
Product categories are:
(1) Gifts like jewellery (not gold or diamond), jewellery for women, men and children, cosmetics. soaps and spa products, etc
(2) Home decor products like sculpture, paintings, picture frames, ceramics, decorative, lighting, linen, etc
(3) Kitchen and cooking items (but not electrical products) such as cookware, serving ceramics, aprons, etc
(4) Gardening items
Suppliers need to be flexible at the beginning regarding order size, ideally supplying small orders for the first few months. Also for European suppliers, prices need to be competitive to compete with post-Brexit customs changes.
Ideally also that the supplier company can accommodate custom orders, unique designs or whole collections based on client supplied designs, via distribution agreement or commercial agency agreement.
