Classic Canes
What to Stock Now

WHAT TO STOCK IN OCTOBER 2014
This month's advice for Classic Canes stockists. Trade prices are not shown here, but are available to retailers upon request.

October will be a busy month: the warm weather in the UK last month means many people have delayed buying their new autumn and winter clothes and accessories: as soon as the weather changes, be ready with ladies' canes in autumnal hues. Christmas is looming, so stick displays should be bursting with appropriate stick for Christmas gifts and for festive parties. In rural areas, the country sports seasons are underway so a full stock of thumbsticks, hiking staffs and seat sticks should be in place. Finally, don't forget your umbrellas: October can be wet and windy!
