Work Dandy Lion 118 High Street Co Down Holywood BT18 9HW Northern Ireland Work Phone: +44 7746 766015

Biographical Info

Dandy Lion Holywood – is situated in Audley Court, beside The Bay Tree restaurant. I just wanted a tea and cinnamon bun, but when I saw the lovely little shop that was up for rent, I thought – what the heck, why not?! – I have a full time job as a Creative Director for a health supplements wholesaler, and to be honest hadn’t really thought out the whole opening and running a shop thing in much detail – other than, Im sure Im capable of doing this…lol.

Had to spend the next 6 weeks trying to source stock, its been such fun, Ive spent endless days and nights at auctions, markets and trade shows, gone to Paris and Spain to buy stock, brought a lot home in suitcases, shipped the rest. The people who have helped out have been as crazy as me, and I couldn’t have done it without them ( and the biggest thanks to my partner, Guy!)

Make a business plan they said – yes, yes, I will get round to it said I. In the meantime collated stock consisting of antiques, vintage, retro, old and new. Tried and tested delicious edibles ( I did say this was fun) – raided my mums house for more stock (she’s such a hoarder!) The local business people helped out too, and on the day the shop finally opened they came round to give us flowers and cards.

Where do I see Dandy Lion going as a business venture – well thats really up to you all, and I hope you adore the little shop as much as I do….please do call in and say hello, you might just not expect to find the things you do!

Poise and Presents

Biographical Info

Hello my name is Sharon Kerr and I work from home in Glengormley creating faux floral gift arrangements, my business is called Poise and Presents. Although my business operates online from Facebook and Instagram, I don’t operate from commercial premises but I have collection points within the Newtownabbey and Greater Belfast areas. My most popular arrangements to date have been my unique bespoke wrist corsages and button holes. Wrist corsages are primarily but not exclusively linked to school formals. I create wrist corsages for various occasions such as to compliment your outfit if attending a wedding, gala dinner dance, day at the races, fashion show, to compliment your gown if you are off on a cruise and for your bridesmaids. I like to create pieces of art that you can wear to compliment and not overpower your outfit of choice. Attention to detail is paramount to me and I won’t compromise on quality. Attention to detail is something customers have complimented me on and has been one of the unique selling points that have brought me repeat business and recommendation. When creating button holes and ladies spray I like to create something unique and bespoke that can be used time and time again. You can view a small selection of my corsages at The Sassy Boutique located on the Lisburn Road in Belfast, The Dainty Doll Boutique & Balmoral Dress Hire located on the Upper Lisburn Road in Belfast, the Bridal Elegance Boutique located in Larne and at the Urban Hair Company Salon located here in Glengormley.

Besides the aforementioned arrangements, I like to create gift arrangements that the recipient will remember you and the occasion for. One idea that I had was to create unique faux flower arrangements incorporating vintage handbags. The benefit to this arrangement is a ‘one-off’ statement piece that can be a vocal point in the home and a conversation starter .

Although my wedding was over 20 years ago, I remember how expensive wedding cakes were and indeed are today. It takes great skill to create the perfect wedding cake and the remuneration is justified, but not all couples can afford to purchase such beautiful cakes. For that reason, I wanted to create beautiful dummy cake tiers that are affordable and help couples have some of the vow factor their tight budget cannot stretch to.

Since I started Poise and Presents I’ve had a lot of enquiries for bridal/wedding items and this is something I’m working on over the coming months. I have created a couple of faux flower hair pieces and a bridal bouquet all of which have brought great feedback.

There are two things that are central to my business; attention to detail and great customer service, I’m pleased to say that those are 2 key comments from my customers. I am self-taught in what I do, but I’m pleased to say that some of that artistic flair is genetic with both my maternal and paternal families having worked in creative industries for generations. I do know my limitations and I won’t over promise and under deliver, if I cannot create for you what you would like I’ll certainly do my best to help you find someone who will. If you’d like a little inspiration, take time with a cup of tea/coffee and browse through the photo gallery on my Facebook page I hope you enjoy.

Biographical Info

Molly & Me is a small artisan business which produces handpoured 100% Soy Wax candles and melts. We are truly committed to ensuring our products are as eco friendly as possible so our candles also have wood wicks and untreated eco cotton wicks and our fragrances are sourced so they are phthalate and paraben free.
Our Soy Wax Candles are made from a pure and natural vegetable wax which is non-toxic , unlike a lot of other well known candle products which are made from paraffin wax. Soy Wax is biodegradable and made from a renewable resource so it is the best environmentally friendly option. Candles made from soy wax are very clean burning. Not only is there a reduction in soot , but due to the make up of soy itself , the burn time of a soy wax candle increases because it burns slower and cooler than paraffin – giving you better value for money!

Biographical Info

My name is Niamh and for he past decade I have been busy building my family and dreaming of opening up my own business.

Apparently I decided to wait until I had 3 children until I was ready to start my own Mama Merchandise business. You know, because after 3 babies you obviously have loads of time on your hands! 😂

No, I’m joking. Honestly, I have actually been dreaming of this happening ever since I had my first daughter back in 2014. Ever since I became a Mother I felt like I became a part of something so much bigger than just being ‘someone’s Mum’. As Mothers we become the most important thing in the world to someone, we come part of a massive community of women who are thriving, yet struggling, beautiful, yet stressed, amazing, yet tough on themselves and I wanted a brand that reflected the humour and strength of being a Mum – so I’ve created one.

Ive started small but who knows where this will lead ❤️

 

Thanks for for your interest and support ❤️
