We're so pleased to have opened our doors to the public on Saturday 13th July!Not been open long, but so far we're absolutely loving it down here!
We've had amazing feedback from the local people who have popped in to have a nosey around - something we definitely encourage!
The best reception we've had has been for our Children's costumes and accessories! Plenty of mums commenting about the pushchair friendly shop and what we have in stock so far and we still haven't got everything in yet! Exciting times.
Our first hire costume came back damaged sadly, but we've also had one of our Medieval Peasants going out for use on BBC's 'Countryfile', due to air 4th August we think, so look out for that one!
As for the usual strange requests we get as a Fancy Dress Shop? Oh we have plenty! Our favourite so far was a guy after a ladies Pirate costume.... for HIM to wear. Always fun to help a guy get in drag! The comedy potential is brilliant!
Our neighbours are lovely - while we've been fitting the shop over the last couple of weeks, Dominic from Do'Lii Caffe Bar (http://www.doliicoffee.co.uk/) has been a massive help, full of brilliant advice. His place is two doors down and fab - definitely recommended! The guys from 'Oh! Calcutta' are lovely too. We definitely have to pop in there soon for an after-work bite!
Fancy coming down and seeing for yourself? Find us at the bottom of Gloucester Road, virtually underneath the arches, barely a few doors up - or take a look at our website for location info:
