Hampton Blue Mobile Boutique
We’re so excited to let you know that Hampton Blue has it’s very own mobile accessories and gift boutique now! We took an old ambulance that was no longer in service, gutted it out and revamped it Hampton Blue style.
The plan now is to use it at various events across Northern Ireland and Ireland, so keep an eye out for us on the road and give us a beep! Hope you like it and find it a fun way to shop.

We are just loving all the new products from Santoro and it seems our customers like them too!! We started off with a small sample of Santoro Gorjuss and Santoro Eclectic gifts, but they’ve been so popular over the last few months, that we have increased our selection.
Just in are these cute Santoro Gorjuss Ruby Nest of Tins and these Santoro Gorjuss I Found My Family In A Book Accessory Case. There are other designs available in both of these products and loads of other Santoro goodies online at Hampton Blue.
Santoro Gorjuss Ruby Nest of 4 Tins, £12.99

We would just like to take this opporunity to thank some of the national and local magazines and papers who have very kindly featured some of our products in their publications recently. This kind of press coverage for a small, family run business like Hampton Blue is just priceless.
October’s issue of Prima magazine very kindly featured 0ur Wild and Wolf Travel Card holder in their Travel Notes Section.
Travel Card Holder, £6.95
Essentials Magazine have also liked our new products and they featured our Disaster Designs Bon Voyage Wash Bag in their September issue. The whole Bon Voyage range, which includes a satchel, purses, make up bags and a mini bag, seems to be going down a storm with our customers. Check out the rest of the products from Disaster Designs on our website.

The deliveries of products for autumn/winter 2012 have started arriving here at Hampton Blue, so it’s a bit like Christmas for us at the minute!! One of our favourite packages to open is the one from Disaster Designs. We just put new bags, purses, makeup bags and compacts from Disaster Designs onto the Hampton Blue website this week. The new Aviary collection is full of vintage bird and floral designs and we have added to other collections, such as the travel themed Bon Voyage collection.
More products are on their way to us, including jewellery from Lovett and Co, home accessories, gifts and more. Can’t wait to see all the lovely new products.

The Belfast Mela, Northern Ireland’s largest intercultural arts festival took place last Sunday in Botantic Gardens, Belfast. Hampton Blue were delighted to have a stall at this great event for the second year in a row, along with loads of other fantastic local businesses.
Selection of gifts from Hampton Blue
With over 30000 people attending, it turned out to be the biggest Mela to date. The crowds were entertained with dancing and music from cultures around the world. There were food stalls selling cuisine from Thailand, Poland, India and Spain, a global souk, various craft tents for kids and so much more. The sun shone on the day (which has been a rare sight this summer) and the buzz was just amazing. It was great to see so many people from different cultural backgrounds coming together and embracing Northern Ireland’s cultural diversity. We can’t wait to take part in the Belfast Mela next year.

We’re so excited to have received our first shipment of bags and compact mirrors from Decodelire. The French company was established in 2004 and it was their aim to bring fun and funky designs to the world. The bags are made from polypropylene and are waterproof, lightweight and very durable and off course covered in bright, colourful designs. We’ve opted for the blue Parisienne and the pink and red Romantique collections. What do you think? Check out the full range on our website Hampton Blue.

The Hampton Blue team spent two days last week at a retail trade fair in England, sourcing gorgeous new products for the Hampton Blue website. It was our first time at that particular show and it really impressed us. We walked our little feet off for two days, but it was all worth it. Exhausted after all the hard work on the first day, we needed a few glasses of vino – just for medicinal purposes off course!!
We visited some of our existing suppliers, such as East of India, Lovett and Co, Wild and Wolf and Santoro, but also found some new companies with great, quirky gifts to add to our existing product line. Watch this space for more beautiful accessories and gifts coming soon!
