Tillington suppliers selected to 'Meet the Buyer'
The Giftware Association is delighted to announce the successful applicants for our exclusive ‘Meet the Buyer’ event on 17th May with The Tillington Group of Garden Centres. The Tillington group have 11 garden centre chains across 36 stores throughout the UK which include Frosts, Webbs, Van Hage and Bents so this is a fantastic opportunity for all those who were chosen.
The response to this event has been overwhelming, with our members jumping at the prospect to apply. The Tillington Group’s task of choosing only 18 companies from this huge line-up has been tremendously difficult due the quality and diversity of products on offer. Each application has received much deliberation and careful consideration from The Tillington Group, and we can confirm that the final 18 are…
- Afrika Trading Company
- All Creatures (Carte Blanche Greetings)
- Doreen Preston and Son
- FKA Brands
- Fragrance of Ireland
- From You To Me Limited
- Martick Jewellery
- PoM 925 Ltd. (Peace of Mind)

“Meet the Buyer is a fantastic way for us to connect suppliers to the right buyers,” says Simone, our business development manager, who has been hard at work facilitating the event. “The Tillington Group have some very keen buyers lined up to meet our suppliers, and we’re certain they will see something they love.”
The lucky finalists will be invited to The Tillington Group’s AGM, held in the beautiful Lake District, where they will present their products in a specially designed showcase. Attendees will have quality time with each buyer to pitch their products and ranges, with the Giftware Association team there to facilitate the day.
We would like to thank everyone who applied to attend this exclusive event, whom we hope to see at future events that we hold.
