Best of Britannia launches at The Mailbox

[affilinet_performance_ad size=468×60]

Best of Britannia launched today in Birmingham’s Mailbox at the start of a 4 day pop up space. The Pop up is a showcase of leading high-end independent British brands, covering everything from fashion and lifestyle to food and drink. With Black Friday taking place and Christmas on the way, now is the perfect time to get yourself into Birmingham in order to pick up an unusual gift idea that will delight even those who are trickiest to please.

Today was an excuse to get familiar with the 11 brands that are being showcased, and to also enjoy the unusual, but totally delicious spirit liqueurs  on offer from The Sweet Potato Company (the Toffee Apple was divine!).  There was also celebratory fizz and mini burgers to fill the lunchtime gap.

I was really impressed with the lovely selection of brands involved in the showcase. The leather driving gloves from Gizelle Renee are beautiful pieces of luxury that would make an incredible Christmas gift, and this goes ditto for the exquisite silk scarves from Furious Goose, which have incredible patterns and are beautifully gift boxed.

The leather satchels and handbags from The Leather Satchel Company are real showstoppers, coming in a range of sizes and colours, and with the prestige and heritage of being the first satchel company. There is also a range of soft, luxurious knitwear from Ross Barr and Genevieve Sweeney, unusual ceramics from Stolen Form and original clothing designs from A-MM-E (their beige coat was so amazing, as was the gold lace and foil skirt.

And then of course, there was that delicious liqueur from the Artisan company The Sweet Potato Company. With names like Pink Marshmallow Moonshine and Toffee Apple Moonshine they were pretty hard to resist, and when you then ties in the gorgeous bottle and bottle bags making them already wrapped for Christmas, then these become a no-brainer for your Christmas list, and worth a trip to the Mailbox to pick up a bottle or two. (Can you guess that I really liked these?)
