Established: 2015 – present
Why I start the business: I have always worked in retail since moving to Dorset. The last the job then was getting very unsafe with staff levels being reduced but the customers where rising. There was a couple of incidents which made me not feel safe. My mother asked what I would prefer to do and decided to take up the previous selling of Haberdashery. I had done it before but as only a hobby. I was looking for item that where not that very easy to get hold of but easy to post. I have always posted with the Royal Mail and have continued to post through the lockdown.
