In October of 2013 I made an off-the-cuff remark that if the perfect shop was to become available I would gamble my life savings and set up a shop.
I had always dreamt of owning my own dress boutique but it was never actually a plan. I didn’t think I even knew enough. The very next day I went for a coffee with my Mum and we decided to take a look in the estate agents’ window to see if any flats took our fancy as my boyfriend and I had started to look for a place to settle down.
As we stood there gazing into the window a lady placed an advert for the premises ’51B High Street’ into the window. I looked straight at my Mum who then repeated what I had said the previous evening and I suddenly felt like this could be the start of my dream.We immediately went in to find out more and booked a viewing for the following day. I instantly fell in love with the shop and could picture exactly how I wanted it.
