Bringing great brands to independent retailers in Scotland

And we’re quite keen on branding and colour.  And we love showing your products to gorgeous, independent shops. We ONLY deal with independents. Contact us now for a chat to see how we can help you out. (and if we don’t think we can, we’ll tell you. We’re honest like that.)

 

About Sarah

Sarah is the founder of Searson Fox and has over 25 years experience of working in various industries within the UK, starting her career as a freelance translator, liaising with the likes of Renault and Volvo with beautiful Scottish leather and  exporting and marketing flexible ducting around the world. It was there her passion for working with people and selling arose. Given it is no mean feat to get passionate about a piece of ducting, she moved on to work with products she genuinely loved. Now working with some fabulous and innovative products in the nursery and toy sector in the UK, Sarah is always open to a great idea and an even better product behind it. Searson Fox was named after two inspirational women in Sarah’s family, one whose motto was always “Oh go on, take the bull by the horns, you can do it!” and that’s how Searson Fox came about. And we try to live by that motto most days.

- Bees can sense the hormone a human gives off when they’re scared. If they feel their hive is threatened they’ll attack.

Oh my goodness. Just had THE most lovely morning in the most magical of places. A place where fellow businesses have got together to support one another and offer what is truly a unique experience to the customer. Gorgeous coffee, beautiful deli produce, fantastic art, reflexology and the most gorgeous gifts. As my son would say this place is a vibe…. 
You’ve got to go visit. #shopindie
We had our first bbq of the year at the weekend round at my sisters. It was still pretty baltic (!) but we braved it…..and yes the midgies were out! I was delighted to see they still had some of the Wee Midgie Spray I gave to them last year to try. They are way more outdoorsy than us as a family so thought they’d be good guinea pigs and my brother in law mountain bikes and is a Duke of Edinburgh leader. Well…I wish I’d recorded the conversation…and if I’d asked them to repeat it it would have sounded too contrived…

“Best stuff I’ve ever used”
“Love the fact it’s all natural - you can actually feel it is when you put it on your skin” 
“You need to shout about this more Sarah!” 
“Literally way better than xxxxxx or anything like that”

Honestly it’s fab. It smells great. It’s made here in Scotland. Vegan and Pet Friendly. Go onto their Facebook to see some of the genuine feedback and reviews - folk rave about it! 

This is the idea time to get it in stock at the start of The Midgie Season. I’ve got fresh samples in if you’d like me to visit for you to see it. Great price too. Just shout if you’d like more info or to or try some. #shopindie
