Welcome to Fleur and Flora. We are a family run business established in February 2016. We sell clothing, accessories and gifts.
When Claire the owner, first started the business, she was 25 and had a new puppy. Now she didn't want to leave the puppy at home all day as he suffers from separation anxiety, therefore she set up Fleur and Flora so as to work from the comfort of her own home.
She began the journey by holding a clothes party for family and close friends but had soon sold out, so had to go for more. She then began selling online through her website and through word of mouth via friends, family and their friends.
Fast forward a couple of months and she was moving the collections into her first concession at Pendle Village Mill, Nelson.
It wasn't six months into the venture when she realised she needed to start looking for a business premise, as she was using her home office and garage. Now she didn't just want any old place, she wanted the quirky market town of Hebden Bridge where community spirit thrives and strives. You know the one where you can take your dog practically anywhere, shopping, eating, walkies.
Claire has an English Springer Spaniel called Alfie, who loves attention and now goes to work whenever Claire does. Most days you can meet him at the shop based in Market Street, Hebden Bridge. He loves cuddles, tickles and lots of fuss, just like most dogs. He also hangs out with the ducks down by the canal or off chasing squirrels in the park. He works the usual business hours but sometimes will take a break and have a nap.
At Fleur and Flora not only do we want to create a dog friendly environment at the shop, but we also allow our staff to bring their dogs to work too. So there will nearly always be a furry friend here ready for cuddles. We also don't believe in working on your birthday and neither should our staff. So that's why we give them the day off, pay them for it and we treat them to a cake too!
Fast forward just a couple of years and we are now the proud stockists of the following brands;
Seasalt Cornwall, Joules, Brakeburn, Lily & Me, Red Cuckoo London, East of India, WoodWick Candles, Yankee Candles, Louise Tiler Cards, Alex Clark and Arch & Ivy.
Should you have any questions about our fabulous company or perhaps you would like to see us at an event near you then please do let us know.

Oh and we still use the traditional snail mail too.
