Biography

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!
