From the editor

All that glitters

Jewellery, in whatever iteration, is always a great seller. We see it time and time again. Whether you’re an accessories boutique with a vast array of different jewellery options, or you are predominately focused on gifts and are thinking about branching out into offering necklaces, rings and bracelets in order to entice the pick-up consumer, jewellery is a sure-fire sales hit.

This issue we have two features looking at different jewellery trends. Celestial styles, inspired by the stars, are definitely en vogue right now, with the fashion-forward consumer loving the cosmos-inspired jewellery items. Meanwhile gold items are classic yet fashionable, traditional yet stylish, and whimsical yet strong – ticking every box and more.

Of course, that’s not all we’re covering this issue. We throw the spotlight on the best handbags and backpacks to market, as well as our round-up of rings and watches. Focusing on shows, we have in-depth previews of Pure x JATC and Scoop – two great events that will help refine your in-store offering and help guide you on what’s hot in the industry right now.

And finally, in our op-ed blog I look at while it’s important to support advocacy days such as International Women’s Day and Pride month, coming up in June, it’s imperative that you are consistent, authentic and intentional with your marketing all-year round in order to highlight your genuine support for these important causes.

Enjoy the issue!

Wedding season is definitely upon us and I have a feeling the headpieces from Alexandra Harper are going to be a fashion statement of the summer. We love this fun and stylish option.

Summer of Sport 

'The Summer of Sport' is almost upon us – and what a summer it's set to be. The UEFA Euros, Wimbledon and of course, the Paris 2024 Olympics are all kicking off over the next few weeks. And with them comes a golden opportunity for independent retailers across the UK. With the world's eyes on Europe, the UK is set to enjoy a substantial uptick in visitors and local celebrations. Consumer confidence and spending is also expected to rise as Brits engage in garden parties, community events and a fair few trips to the local pub.

National Chair of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), Martin McTague, looks at how the VAT system operates. Reaching a half century is often a point in life where we take some time to assess our lives, health, and finances, and think about what we want to change. With value-added tax (VAT) having reached that milestone in 2023, we at FSB thought it past time to look at how the VAT system operates – and whether there are ways it could be reformed and rethought, so as to unlock economic potential among the UK's small businesses and the self-employed. There's evidence that VAT is holding back growth among a significant sub-set of small businesses, making an overhaul of the tax all the more urgent as we look for ways to grow the economy.
