We thought it was about time to share a little bit of information about the women behind CSB. We realise we are commenting on people's pictures and connecting with people on social media and no one really knows who we are.
We're a mother and daughter team who absolutely love fashion and have been obsessed with it for years. We both own and run two other businesses together (and have done for 21 years).
We own an Educational Consultancy for Primary schools, providing training and publications to headteachers and teachers, and a commercial property business.
Linda is 67, married to Clive and has 2 grown up children (Claire, 42 and David 38). She lives in Saddleworth. Claire is 42, engaged to Carl and has 2 children (9 and 13) and 2 step children (9 and 12). She lives in Wilmslow.
We decided to take the plunge during lockdown and set up an online ladies boutique, specialising in beautiful quality pieces at affordable prices. Cheshire Style Boutique is just 4 months old but we are overwhelmed with how successful it has been.
We have met some lovely people who have really helped us and got to know some lovely customers in just a short space of time. We’ve had lots of support from family and friends too. Although we have experience in retail, marketing and sales, we are new to the fashion industry and learning all the time. We love a challenge and we love fashion and clothes and when you love something, it doesn’t feel like work. Unfortunately for our families, that means we are always talking about it!
