Glenhaven Home & Holiday

One-of-a-kind global buying experience!

UNMATCHED PRODUCT SOURCING EXPERIENCE.

At Glenhaven Home & Holiday, we do more than simply offer a wide selection of products for incredible value. We offer an unmatched buying experience, connecting our customers directly with our trusted suppliers. Glenhaven trips are an unforgettable group travel experience, and we coordinate all the details from start to finish. Our sourcing trips also provide invaluable opportunities to connect, collaborate, share ideas and celebrate successes with your peers in the industry. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our buying trips are temporarily postponed. When it is safe to travel again, we invite you to join us!

INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE.
PERSONAL ATTENTION.

We bring a combined 150 years of global trade experience to the table. For more than ten years have been bringing independent garden center and specialty retail buyers to some of the best product showrooms in Asia. We’ve developed deep relationships with manufacturers in China, Thailand, Vietnam, Bali, India and the Philippines who supply top wholesalers and retailers in North America. We connect them directly with buyers like you, enabling you to source the highest quality products at the lowest possible cost – and this factory-direct pricing is available to all Glenhaven customers.

WHY TRAVEL ON A GLENHAVEN SOURCING TRIP?

Since 2012, we have been bringing buyers just like you to Asia to experience the top showrooms firsthand and make selections that put you ahead of your competitors. You will be selecting the newest seasonal and trending product months ahead of the curve. You also see firsthand where products are made, meet the product designers, and collaborate with other retail buyers. We work hard on these trips, but we also try to find a little time for some fun. We throw in a few travel experiences and cultural pitstops – like the Great Wall of China, Forbidden City, Rice Paddy Terraces in Bali or the Taj Mahal – making your journey an unforgettable experience.

WE'RE READY WHEN YOU'RE READY.

We can’t wait for you to join us – when it’s safe to travel again, of course. While we’re all unable to travel to Asia amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, you are still able to take advantage of our products and direct sourcing from the comfort of your store or home office. This buying option is always available, no matter the season. Please contact us to inquire about our Direct Import Program.
