Sweet Salone goods in The Netherlands!

07.04.22

Last week was full of excitement! Rosa, Regina and Suzanne met up in The Netherlands to collect the Sweet Salone goods shipped from Sierra Leone to Culemborg in The Netherlands. At Fairplaza, a center for exhibitors with fair-trade goods, the team has worked all week to set up a shop to start selling the Sweet Salone items for the B2B market in The Netherlands and Benelux.

Monday afternoon, the team started putting together the furniture for the store, followed by some days of unpacking the goods from Sierra Leone and Rosa’s expertise in designing and stocking the store.

We are also super excited about the new boxes to pack and sell the Lettie Stuart Pottery items, which Rosa designed specifically for our new sales outlet. Aren’t they gorgeous?

We are very proud of the result of the shop, which is now open for business owners in The Netherlands who sell home, accessories and gift items.
