A surprise for the owners of Classic Canes!

16 Oct 2017
A surprise for the owners of Classic Canes! A lovely surprise today for Charlotte, Diana and Ben: the team gave us a surprise party with chocolate cake and balloons to mark the 35th birthday of Classic Canes.  A commemorative wooden '35' tealight holder was created for the occasion by Alan in our workshop.  We are very touched by the team's thoughtfulness and everyone enjoyed reminiscing about the early days of Classic Canes.

Trade Days success for Classic Canes

11 Oct 2017
Trade Days success for Classic Canes Many thanks to all our healthcare, mobility and pharmacy customers who visited us on our stand at Trade Days last weekend.  It was great to see so many of you and to hear such positive stories about your sales of Classic Canes.  Our new products sold very well and we look forward to hearing how they sell on in the shops.  it was interesting that there was so much demand for Christmas gift items from the mobility shops in particular so we have high hopes for our cane lamps, Dropmenot cane holders and other gizmos this Christmas.  Just ten weeks to go!!  We greatly appreciate the support and business of all those who attended.

Classic Canes at the Autumn Fair 2017

15 Sep 2017
Classic Canes at the Autumn Fair 2017 Many thanks to all those of our customers who came to see us at the Autumn Fair (NEC, Birmingham UK 3rd - 6th September).  It was a great pleasure to see you all and we thank you for your orders and support. 

Our new handbag size folding canes and leather seat sticks received a great response and will no doubt be filling many Christmas stockings in a few months' time. 

We urge all retailers to support their relevant trade fairs.  Trade fairs everywhere are finding is hard to attract the footfall of days of yore.  We don't want to lose them as they are such a good opportunity to see and handle products for real and for suppliers and customers to meet face to face.  It can't all be done on the internet: remember, you can't Google something you've never heard of, but you can come face to face with it at a trade fair!

Our new fair is Trade Days (8th & 9th October, NEC, UK) for the healthcare industry.  Then we have a break over the winter before re-emerging at the Spring Fair 2018 (4th - 8th February 2018, NEC, UK).  We hope to see you there!

Our bluebells

27 Apr 2017
Our bluebells The Classic Canes bluebells are in full flower.  One of the most beautiful sights of the British countryside, bluebells thrive in deciduous woodlands where dappled light can reach the forest floor.  Our bluebells can be distinguished from the Spanish imposters by their scented flowers, which droop and which are all arranged on one side of the stem. 

NEW: illuminated umbrella

28 Mar 2017
NEW: illuminated umbrella New from Classic Canes today is this exceptional illuminated umbrella, which is both fashionable and safe.  While an LED light at the tip (Pluvis® toplight) makes the user visible to other pedestrians and motorists, the umbrella's ferrule end also has an integrated LED torch which simultaneously lights up the pavement.  This provides safety in the dark and rain and warns approaching drivers from all directions.  The umbrella illuminates at the touch of a button.  A second touch makes the illumination flash on and off repeatedly.  Supplied with an umbrella cover and in elegant packaging, the illuminated umbrella makes an excellent gift.  It has an automatic opening mechanism and soft-touch handle with fabric wrist strap.  It is supplied with three AAA batteries, which are easily fitted into a compartment within the handle.  Its overall length is 85cm and the canopy diameter 108cm.  Stock reference code 2300A.
