Angela Green, our Assistant Gift Buyer has worked for Fairweather’s for 14 years!
I think it would be Kaemingk, a Dutch company we visit twice a year – I am always amazed at how many new products are in the collections year after year.
What new products are you most excited about?
I love the new handmade pottery animals from Poland. Very stylish, but also colourful and reasonably priced.
Where do you get your inspiration from when creating displays?
I enjoy going to the trade shows in London and Birmingham. I always pick up lots of ideas which we can adapt to our space at the garden centre.
What did you do before you joined Fairweather’s?
For many years I worked for a display company as a window dresser for large corporate companies such as Cartier, Elizabeth Arden and Mary Quant.
What do you do in your spare time?
I enjoy gardening and crafting!
If you didn’t work for Fairweather’s, what do you think you would be doing?
After years of experience I think I would like to have a go at party planning and big events.
