When we all start in business we do so with a dream or a vision. Realising that dream is usually a roller coaster and our story is no different than many others. That said this story has foundation, two good friends and neighbours who became business partners and have maintained a business marriage for several decades... and guess what… we still talk to each other!!
Not only have we maintained our business marriage, but we’ve raised a family of loyal staff, moved house taking the business from our home town to sunny Somerset, expanding from our spare room to 5 warehouse units bursting at the seams with product, got WiFi and went online with our first website in the noughties. Our social network of customers, suppliers and trading partners is now worldwide, and our partnerships are much trusted.
Everyday our family of loyal staff pull together, most of whom grew up here and have stayed at home within the business for many, many years, so the heart and soul of this business marriage, beats in the veins of every person here today.
Through the years, we’ve done our time on the road and in the warehouse; worked stupidly long hours and unloaded more than our fair share of containers. We’ve picked and packed our way from handbags, yes that’s what we sold in the early days!... to worry stones, t-shirts, baseball caps, PJ’s and now even fuzzy feet! As we’ve continued to grow and evolve, we’ve invested heavily in IT to guarantee our operation is slick and efficient.
Our use of technology ensures the best use of space, the most cost effective postal and carriage methods, fast order import and processing and more ways to keep you informed than ever before. We believe in working smarter not harder and will always do our best to ensure working with us is easy peasy.
