Craft Buddy sees ‘upbeat retailer reaction’ at UK trade open days event

Craft Buddy is celebrating the success of its sell-out trade open days event; a three day event that saw UK retailers flock to the company’s Buckinghamshire headquarters to get a first look at the firm’s newest ranges.

According to Craft Buddy, visitors to the open days were “full of praise” towards the company’s expanding arts & crafts line-up, underscoring the popularity of ranges such as Crystal Art, Pretty Gets Gritty Mixed Media and Forever Flowers.

Much of the focus was on the success of Crystal Art, a range that, according to one retailer is ‘unlike anything most people have seen before.’ It has ben highlighted as the alternative option for ‘anyone looking for unusual and different products, rather than what they already have.”

Over the course of the show, Craft Buddy had free workshops on the agenda, treating retailers to a wide portfolio of Craft Buddy lines, with guided Die Cutting, Stamping, Crystal Art and Flower Making sessions.

Craft Buddy continues to focus on its retailer relationships, knowing that they are a vital part of the continuing success of the company and days such as these are just as much about them, as they are about Craft Buddy.

Gary Wadhwani, co-director at Craft Buddy Ltd, said: “We have had a wonderful time meeting with existing retailers and new customers at our headquarters, and showing them the extensive Craft Buddy range. Here at Craft Buddy we put a lot of time and value into developing partnerships with our retailers and it was fantastic to see them and hear from them about their experiences with us and our products.

“It was heart -warming to hear the success most of our retail partners are having with Crystal Art, as it vindicates the huge amount of time and effort we’ve poured into this brand. With our new licensed products on display and our newly released Forever Flowers range, it was great to give out partners a taste of the amazing new ranges we have planned for the rest of 2019.”
