Do you allow the resale of Talking Tables products on third party websites such as Amazon, Facebook, Ebay, Etsy?

Talking Tables does not allow the resale of our products on any third party sites.  As a company we invest significantly in product innovation and unique developments. We have a strong sense of brand that we wish to protect and develop further.  We feel the auction style nature of these sites can misrepresent the premium quality of our brand. If you do see our products on reseller sites, we do have a few selected strategic resellers within the UK which we implemented as a programme in 2017.  We shall be working with them in 2018 to review the success of the programme.

I have a store/website and would love to stock Talking Tables, do you supply wholesale?

Yes we certainly do, we check all applications to make sure your store/website will be a good match for our premium brand. We reserve the right to refuse any application where will feel our brand would be misrepresented, or where selling our stock in your store could cause conflict with existing Talking Tables stockists very nearby.

My website/store is not yet ready to trade, can I still apply for a trade account?

Yes, you can apply for an account, but we cannot allow access until your website is ready and we can ascertain you are buying for business purposes. In some cases, we may be able to provide a small selection of pricing to help with your costings.

Yes, once you are approved as a Trade customer you will be given access to our Image Library.
