My husband, Paul and I bought the fancy dress business in 2005. Neither of us had any retail experience having both worked in finance since the 1980s. Business was slow at the beginning as the shop we rented initially was on the outskirts of town but on reflection the slow start gave us chance to learn about the business.
We moved to 11 La Colomberie in 2012 and into a larger shop, which has allowed the business to grow steadily and naturally. Over the last few years we have developed a fantastic, loyal customer base as well as gaining new customers, too. We focus on delivering authentic, top quality costumes available through both sale and hire.
With the growth of the real life store and customer base we recognised that it was time to take our presence online, creating this website. This will be a place where customers are able to purchase costumes as well as keep up to date with us via our blog and to have a look around see what we have to offer!
The fancy dress world is good fun and every day is different. We enjoy meeting different people and I like to think that my staff and I offer a consultancy service as well as being regular shop assistants.
