I had spent most of my adult life in the corporate world, with a career in the hotel and events industry, with just two breaks to have my daughters Megan and Milly.
Having successfully run my own business providing venue finding, and event management for many years, I was in need of a new challenge, within a completely new environment, and it had to involve something I had an interest in.
Lightbulb moment….. Shopping & clothes…!!
So, I took a leap of faith, and Voila! A seed had been sewn a number of years previously, when during a weekend away with girlfriends, Irene, suggested I make a move into retail as she felt I had a ‘good eye’ for colours and often I found items which were a bit unique.
The thought rumbled on, and so here I am, and I hope that the items I have selected from both near and far, appeal to you too.
When selecting suppliers, I wanted to work with small companies, and individuals. This way I could ensure that the items were unique, often hand-made, using ethical practices in the manufacturing of their products.
I am always here to help, so if you have any comments or queries, please feel free to contact me.
