About

Ross

I have a thriving business providing Scottish retailers with some of the best selling gifts available.

 

2019 will see me celebrating 30 years as a sales agent.

 

I have always strived to source and promote gifts, home accessories and fashion accessories that offer quality and design at realistic, retail prices.

 

I have worked with companies who, at times, have supplied ( and continue to supply ) retailers with some of their best selling lines.

 

The essence of my business has been to build long lasting, honest relationships with principals, competitors and most importantly, customers. I still deal with Juniper of Aberdeen who gave me my first ever order 30 years ago!

 

My experience covers working with large multiple groups, through to enthusiastic independent small shops. I am comfortable and enjoy the challenges of the variety that everyday offers.

 

The major success story of recent years has been the evolution of the brands JOMA and Katie Loxton. Katie has overseen the design and manufacture of both brands. They are an important part of many retail businesses across the country.

 

JOMA supplies beautiful, affordable jewellery. Best known for the “ A Little” carded sentiment bracelets, there is an increasing awareness and demand for this brand.

 

Katie Loxton provides a coordinated collection of functional and decorative fashion accessories, handbags, scarves, candles, baby gifts, and the best selling “ Perfect Pouches “.

 

Jolipa is a brand new agency for 2019. Launching at the Spring Fair, Nec in February. This Belgium family run company has been operating for 40 years. They have a huge selection of home accessories, interior statements and themed giftware.

 

Apples to Pears is best known for its multi-award-winning Gift in a Tin. The creative Gift in a Tin brand consists of charming gift ideas which can be built, crafted, played-with, or used when travelling or in the garden. Exceptionally good value, each one offers hours of entertainment.

 

Jo of Toasted Crumpet captures the glory of British nature in superb style through her contemporary watercolours. From greetings cards to fine art prints to luxury duck feather filled cushions and fine bone china; Toasted Crumpet has a dynamic eye-catching range of beautifully designed giftware and stationery.
