Slate. It's great...


Natural slate is a fantastically beautiful and tactile material. It certainly compliments many of the existing display products that we offer, so we thought it would make a great addition to our range.

Slate is a particularly versatile material, ideal for a number of uses, so here's a brief outline of how we see it working well in-store, and some of the advantages that the range brings:

 


 

Natural Slate Heart

Display

The new range is a fantastic way to help display and sell produce. The slate items serve a dual purpose, either as chalkboards or a way to display other products such as cheeses in a rustic, effective way.

Chalk works well on the slate, so perhaps use one of our larger oblong slate boards to display some items, and then scribble the price in one corner with some chalk!

Some of the range features rope hangers, which allow you to write a short message, or a price, on the board and then hang it nearby, ideal for highlighting special offers or a 'Product of the week'.

 

Natural Slate Squares

 

 

Gifts

The other potential use for the range is as gifts. The whole range features felt feet, and many of the items double as great potential gift items. Smaller square pieces make great coasters, and larger oblong pieces work well as tablemats.

With people always looking for quirky, interesting ways to make up hampers, why not consider offering a large oblong piece along with a knife and cheeses as a cheese hamper? Our cake stand  also makes a great potential hamper when stocked with cupcakes or small jars of chutneys and jams.

You can view and order the whole range online here. As always, if you have any questions or would like more information feel free to give a member of our team a call on 01278 437123.
