We are a small close team who love our jobs!
We all appreciate that helping customers look and feel good is the most uplifting thing we can do. We love to listen and to chat and get to get to know our customers who have become friends over the years.
Our aim is to make you feel good after visiting us - even if you are browsing.
We offer a personal shopping experience as standard - no appointment needed. Allow us to help you find your perfect outfit or gift, perhaps introducing you to something new but staying true to your style.
Come and let us show you some good old fashioned service delivered by a team with personality and passion for what we do.
