How it all began...
After 30 years in banking 10 of those in business banking helping new businesses start up. Inspired by many of the lovely business people I met during that time I wanted to start a business of my own. I had a little stand at an emporium were I sold second hand vintage items and decided to add some of my handmade items to the stall. When the shop closed due to redevelopement I went on to sell at local fair's and markets but many of them were finding it difficult to keep going.
I went back to full time employment but continued to make and sell my cards and jewellery through my local shop. I also added gift items from other suppliers and designer/makers as I didn't have the time to continue making all the items myself. I still make jewellery and cards and sometime's combine the two but I now concentrate on promoting other designer/makers, family run businesses that design the things that I love and hope you will enjoy them too.
