Just when you thought it

was all going smoothly…

 

 


 

So, following on from my ramblings a few months ago about Eynsham I thought it was time to actually sit down and give you all an Ellie Sanderson update.

You see I totally believe in Fate, I found our beautiful Beaconsfield shop one dull, rainy day when I got lost and came off the M40. I parked up in this pretty, thriving town looking for a tea shop (pub) and found my lovely little London End boutique, just like that – I knew it was the one. She is now 11 years old and holds over 17 National awards for being absolutely brilliant.

 

Three Christmases later on a boring Boxing day, internet surfing at its finest I stumbled upon a shop in Little Clarendon street, Oxford. I quite literally jumped in my car, drove to the shop and sat outside for ages dreaming up the beautiful space it could be. I just knew it was the next Ellie Sanderson boutique. I couldn’t wait for the agents to open after Christmas and let me in, I had the layout mapped out in my head, the furnishings already purchased! Eight years later that journey is complete, as you all know the building will soon be knocked down, so it was onto pastures new, the next adventure…

 

In February this year I came across a lovely little shop at 1 Mill Street, Eynsham. It reminded me of my gorgeous Beaconsfield shop and made me re live those early days again, the excitement of finding somewhere you know will be fabulous, perfect for our brides to be. However, sadly after months and months of negotiations, telephone calls, meetings, headaches I have decided that it was, quite simply, not meant to be. There were too many concessions on standards and me, my team and my brides are obsessive about standards. Its either fabulous or it’s not good enough, and this time it just wasn’t good enough.

So, I wanted to share that we will not be moving to Eynsham. We are now full steam ahead planning our new Ellie Sanderson Oxfordshire shop and I have to be honest, I am totally and utterly excited. Sometimes things are just not meant to be and when that happens I always like to believe that things happen for a reason, that something better is coming. Let me tell you, something better IS coming…

 

I can’t tell you the ins and outs, I actually cannot tell you anything at all, if I did I would have to kill you….but fear not our new Oxfordshire shop will be announced very soon. We’ll just let the excitement build a little more for this one! In the meantime we are holding appointment spaces for our Oxford Brides in our Beaconsfield Boutique, we know it’s been a little rollercoaster so everyone at team ES would like to thank you for being so loyal and staying with us during this crazy, but exciting, time. If you have any questions at all if you’re booked in for an appointment, we’re all still here at the end of a phone call or email so do get in touch.

 

I hope to share the details in the next few weeks…
