We are fast approaching the First Birthday of our little shop and are taking our first tentative steps onto the World Wide Web , I have to pinch myself to believe it’s true that at the grand old age of 57 and after spending most of my adult life as a wife and stay at home Mum of 4, I got the chance to open a Gift Shop together with our youngest Son ( Benedict )

Benedict had spent 3 years as a full time volunteer in a local Charity Shop where he thrived but his mild Autism makes him shy at Interviews so we had failed to find him paid employment in retail , it started from there , an idea to just start our own shop and the more we thought about it the more excited I got about the idea ?
We found our little shop in September 2016 and by January 2017 the legal work was done and we had the keys. In early March the renovations were complete and with the help of a couple of good friends, we moved the stock in ready to open on the 18th March ?
We wanted to stock as much as we could that is UK made and our bath products are skin kind and animal cruelty free , many are vegetarian society approved .We only sell candles that are 100% soy wax and we are gradually increasing our selection of gifts , we offer made to order gift boxes and have just been to our First Trade Fair at the NEC in Birmingham.

Our website and online shopping facility has been created for us by our lovely Daughter and Benedict’s big Sister ( Melissa ) and as a family we are looking forward to our second year in Business and this Blog is to give me a chance to share the ups and downs we encounter along the way together with reviews of the many products that we sell that I have tried personally ?
