HSN and QVC are great places to learn more about new and exciting brands you may not have otherwise heard of. And, this year, the mega retailers brought back a joint program to help track down small businesses customers will fall in love with.
It’s called The Big Find initiative, and it launched this summer as a way for brands in beauty, apparel, footwear, accessories, jewelry, homeware and more to share their goods with a bigger audience. In case you’re not aware, QVC and HSN have long traditions of launching and promoting the growth of some of today’s most successful brands.
Entrepreneurs had the chance to submit information about their product and the story behind it, where it was judged by QVC and HSN merchandising experts, brand founders, hosts and Big Find winners from 2019. The winners of that round went through a virtual panel in September, and the winners of that will get to premiere their products on QVC or HSN this year.
The retailers went through 2,400 entries from 60 different countries and hand-selected 92 exciting new brands that you can purchase through either QVC or HSN this year. You’ll enjoy 14 new brands in apparel, accessories, jewelry and beauty at HSN and 15 at QVC, along with 24 new offerings in home and culinary at HSN, with 39 home, culinary and electronics offerings at QVC. Worth noting: 66 percent of the brands identified as woman- or minority-owned.
What brands can you expect? For the first part of the year, QVC and HSN plan to launch 23 new brands, including:
Poppy + Sage
Pacific Northwest Cookie Company
Go Hang It!
And—get this—some of the brands are available right now. Shop these offerings to support small businesses—and get plenty of good stuff for yourself in the process.
Chunk Nibbles were founded by Bradley Cocklin, and they’re based on a recipe that his grandmother, Cuddy, has been making for decades. These gourmet snack mixes have a little of everything in the mix, whether you’re looking for something salty, sweet or crunchy. You’ll get two 6.5 ounce bags of the Chunk Nibbles Original Snack Mix (pretzels, salted nuts and corn squares in a sweet coating), two bags of S’mores Snack Mix (pretzels, marshmallows, salted nuts, corn squares and graham crackers in a sweet coating) and one bag of the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Snack Mix (pretzels salted with peanut butter chips, corn squares and a sweet coating). Basically, it’s a lot of crunchy deliciousness that’s headed your way. Reviewers are pretty excited about these treats. “These are eat the WHOLE bag delicious,” a five-star reviewer wrote. “I cant even describe how good they are!!!!” another fan said. “Perfect balance of sweet and salty! Definitely going to buy more! Love love love!!!”
Trying to prop up your phone on a counter or table is a challenge, to say the least. It easily slips and slides and, if you’re trying to read a recipe while you cook, you can end up getting your phone covered in gunk. Well, help is here in the form of the GoDonut Tablet and Phone Stand. It has three stand notches built into a sturdy base, and the whole thing rests on a swivel base, allowing you to move your device with you. This handy device was created by inventors and business partners Raymond and Nina who have a passion for creating innovative and deceptively simple solutions to everyday issues. Choose from a range of colors, including purple, orange, green and pink. “I didn't have a stand for my phone and this is perfect. The swivel is an added plus,” one happy customer wrote in the reviews.
Filing and buffing your nails one by one can take forever, and who has time for that these days? The Bellasonic 4-in-1 Electric Nail File lets you shape, smooth, buff and shine your nails quickly and easily. It can even buss out excess cuticles and callused skin around your nails. It’s basically like having salon-quality manicure tools in your home. “My nails look like I just visited the salon and it only took minutes! It’s definitely a keeper and will get used often!” a fan wrote in the reviews.
Remember: QVC and HSN just started rolling out these new products. There are many, many more to come.
