Alphabet Barn is a business specialising in gifts, most of which can be personalised, and all of which are our own original designs. I began designing and selling personalised gifts in 2011, deciding to take the plunge and start my own business. Previous to that I worked in retail for over 20 years, predominantly as a buyer for large corporate companies.
But having children meant that going back to work for a large company was going to be difficult....so I decided it was time to take the opportunity to do something for myself. Developing gifts has always been something I have loved and in particular seeing something that starts off as a small idea and becomes a big seller! The range is ever expanding as we are constantly working on new concepts that will tempt the customers. Our focus is on wood items and handmade where possible, working with several other small companies who produce our items.
This year has been a year for moving the business up a level to keep up with the growing demand. Help is on board to get orders to the customers quickly, as well as a new website, Instagram site, a new work space...and of course lots of new products.
