The Giftware Association have teamed up with Buy-From Shropshire to showcase the amazing products that Shropshire has to offer.

The GA and Buy-From teams share the same ethos; helping businesses thrive, grow and succeed in the world of home and gift. The GA Team will be on hand in a lounge area with our various service provider discussing HRLaw and Design and Branding.

I am a mum of two young girls who love to wear children’s perfumes, however they couldn’t due to skin allergies. My children enjoyed dressing up and wearing jewellery and so I decided to create a bangle that not only looked good and was fun to wear but was also scented allowing my children to wear perfume without having a reaction to it. Although my previous career had been in the hospitality industry I have always wanted to run my own company.  So, with the help of a colleague, who had knowledge of the retail industry, the Lish d’lish Scented Jelly Bangle range was born.
