Well, it’s been quite a decade, 4 kids, one divorce and 4 businesses!
Bond Street To Your Street grew from an idea that started back in 2009 when I decided I needed to start selling my wardrobe of designer pieces; it was getting a bit out of control and I couldn’t close the door of my closet! So, my idea was to open an evening event to friends in the same predicament and hold a ‘posh boot sale’. It turns out I had a lot of friends who wanted to sell their designer pieces and weren’t getting the money they wanted from other avenues.
The first sale was held early December 2009, I had my six week old, third son George at home with a three year old and four year old! I must have been mad! I marketed this as MeBay, and the event was a roaring success and an article written about it hit the local papers! I decided to host a sale every quarter, and they went from strength to strength. As time went by, It was apparent juggling three young kids and this business was a massive struggle, so I decided to downsize a bit and closed MeBay. As the boys got older, I missed the fun and challenge and came up with the concept of Bond Street to Your Street. My business moved more towards a dress agency, but for top designer items.
After 5 years of hosting ‘pop-up’ boutiques in private homes and London offices, I decided the business needed a focal point, a home, a high-street shop, so, in April 2016, Bond Street to Your Street, Cranbrook, Kent proudly opened its doors.
This again proved to be a popular idea and grew significantly building a very strong reputation, and Bond Street to Your Street became a trusted brand with customers from Australia, Oman, Ireland and America. The boutique was the best move I ever made. Once people know and trust your product, your reputation grows and word of mouth drives growth. Someone once said to me: ‘reputation is solid gold currency’, I whole heartedly believe in this mantra. 18 months after opening the boutique I gave birth to my fourth son, Rex, returning to work two weeks later.
I hope you enjoyed my story… I’m just a mum of four, but with a lot of hard work, persistence and a very active mind, I’m in a position to offer a great service and knowledge of my trade.
I hope you enjoyed my story. I love hard work and I put everything into what I do. My kids, my friends, my clients, my customers. Nothing gives me more pleasure that making them all happy.
Never give up
