A guaranteed delight, nothing but the best!
This isn’t just chocolate, this is chocolate by Manfred Spaargaren! Manfred creates and sells a wide range of the most delicious chocolate bonbons of his own design. Manfred is a true bon vivant and confectionery genius. While he follows trends in lifestyle, craftsmanship is his calling. He shows this by perfecting traditional flavours such as freshly roasted nuts, coffee and home-made alcoholic spirits (liquor fillings). New flavours are created and tested every day in his modern chocolate kitchens in Uithoorn. For years, Manfred Spaargaren has been an established name among fine restaurants, hotels, and established pastry chefs. Now his amazing creations are available at Trends & Trade.
Sustainable and fair
Manfred’s chocolate is not only exquisite, but also fair. He adheres to Fairtrade principles and sustainable practices throughout the chocolate-making process. This means that only the best and purest ingredients are selected for his chocolate bonbons. Manfred only uses sustainably produced chocolate, made from cocoa he purchases from Callebaut. Callebaut has set up a programme to improve the lives of cocoa farmers and their families.
The most delicious and exclusive chocolate bonbon collections
Should you need any more convincing, Manfred Spaargaren is the only confectioner in the Netherlands who makes his own alcoholic spirits (liquor fillings). His exclusive collection of chocolate bonbons contains liquor fillings derived from ingredients such as tonka beans, vanilla, and saffron, to name a few. Manfred Spaargaren’s chocolate bonbons are made according to the Swiss method in order to guarantee the perfect amount of chocolate coating. Manfred specifically avoided the Belgian style of making chocolate bonbons, as it results in a layer of chocolate that is too thick for his creations.
A colourful assortment for the festive season
Manfred Spaargaren even caters to the seasonal celebrations! In the run-up to Easter, he creates a stunning collection of bunnies, and for Christmas he creates a range of themed chocolates. Manfred Spaargaren isn’t just limited to chocolates, as he also offers a range of mixed nuts and biscuits. Have a taste and treat your customers to these delicious chocolate bonbons!
Manfred Spaargaren’s confectionery can be found at stand A1.02.

Inspiration for your collection, store presentation, or window display!
Read Marco and Inez’s styling tips about the New Vintage spring trend and gain inspiration for your own collections, store presentations, and window displays!
Styling tip from Marco
Present your story!
Products that have a story are far more interesting than that same product with just a price tag attached.
Use photo frames with a handwritten story or tip for a product or the collection in your display. This can be a Fair Trade product that has a great story behind it or a product for which you create your own story. In this case, you create a context; a comment or tip about a product that lets your clients know that the product is original.
Present your own story using labels, stick-in labels, standards, or photo frames and highlight a few products to boost their sales.
Old gets a brand-new look
You can create a vintage style in many different ways. You don’t have to delve through all the antiques markets to find the perfect items; you can create a vintage look with new products too. It is the combination of old and new that gives your collection a unique twist. When purchasing your vintage collection get a few large glass vases with a mother-of-pearl sheen from Fidrio, rugs with coarse stitching available from Home Delight, and products that are made according to the Cradle to Cradle principle. Bright silk branches or spring flowers from Colours & Green and W.deJong&Zn. create a vibrant spring feeling. This will make your vintage collection look old, but with a modern and vibrant spring makeover.
Don’t be afraid to combine different styles

At exhibitors such as Be-Unique, Evenaar, Light & Living, and Van Manen Veenendaal you can find beautiful vintage decorative items such as vases, ‘antique’ boxes, and pretty little steps. Products that have a natural look such as papier mâché baskets and wooden steps are highly popular items and create a sense of serenity in your styling. Mix and match to your heart’s content this spring!
Let spring begin!
On Sunday 4 and Monday 5 February Trends & Trade will be stepping into spring. Although there have been plenty of spring items on sale at Trends & Trade since mid-December, we like to kick off the spring season with a little celebration.
Be inspired during the kick-off by our tasting sessions, a fun workshop for florists, and a styling tour given by our stylist Inez!
It is also an ideal opportunity to take a look at our new exhibitors as well as the new collections of dozens of others!

Trendy small items of furniture and accessories from a new Dutch interior furnishings label
items with attitude
Scandinavian and industrial designs and fun items with attitude: Housevitamin is in the house!
Housevitamin is a new Dutch interior furnishings label offering trendy small items of furniture and accessories. It is now proudly presenting its collection at Trend Square (Trendplein) at Trends & Trade.
Owner Mischa tells us about the brand: ‘We have just a touch more attitude than other brands, and we know all about the latest consumer trends thanks to our sounding boards and friends with good taste.’
Behind the Trend Square, you will find a varied range of items including trendy spine-free cactuses, hand lettering cards with cheeky quotes, attractive storage cabinets, baskets, and other trendy decorative materials with an ‘urban touch’ here and there. The mix & match character of the range is particularly striking: everything combines well with everything else.
passion & small margins
Housevitamin has its own ideas and a designer who brings those ideas to life. All the rest is done in-house: they work efficiently, with fewer employees and fewer overheads. The turnover rate is high, which allows them to keep margins small and offer a rapidly changing range.
There is a story behind every product. Take the spine-free cactuses, for example. ‘We have experienced how bothersome the spines on real cactuses can be. That’s why we now have a collection of plastic cactuses without spines, and they sell very well,’ explains Mischa with a clear passion for the products.
now available at Trends & Trade!
Housevitamin was launched in the Netherlands last year but had been active as an import and export company for quite a while before that. Housevitamin is already well-known in Germany and Denmark, and it is now taking the Dutch market by storm! Visit Trends & Trade for the bold and trendy range!
Every interior needs Housevitamin!
