Glee at Spring Fair proves fruitful for Creative Products

Home and garden gadgets supplier, Creative Products is reporting a successful first year at Glee at Spring Fair, with visitors showing a real interest in the company’s refreshed packaging and product range.


Products which were particularly well received include the new Thermo Gloves – a practical, user friendly alternative to traditional oven gloves – as well as Creative Products’ Fast Fix Hook and Loop Tape, which received recognition for its versatility around the home and garden in the first Glee at Spring Fair New Product Awards. Providing a quick and easy solution to securing plants and young trees – as well as a multitude of items around the home – Fast Fix offers a reusable solution in place of string, wire or regular tape.


Commenting on his experience of the exhibition, Managing Director Mark Hall said, “Glee at Spring Fair has provided us with a great platform from which to maximise our business opportunities as we get ready to embark on another financial year. It’s provided us with a second bite at the cherry after an excellent Glee last September.”


Creative Products is renowned for its unique ‘no risk’ retail opportunity, meaning products are supplied on a fully sale or return basis. The company has gone from strength to strength in recent years, with 2018 seeing an investment in new, contemporary packaging and on-trend products.


Mark continues, “As our first exhibition of 2018, it was hugely reassuring to see such a tremendous response from both existing and new customers. The Irish market showed particular enthusiasm for our products, to the point where we’re now looking to source additional staff for the area!”
