Having spent more than 20 years working for a high street chemist and being appointed to my aspirational role, a Company restructure lead me to the decision to leave and start out on my own. Louise Lewis was born!
I became an Independent Phoenix trader, selling quality, beautiful UK printed cards and grew my business; standing at fairs, ladies lunches, hosting Coffee & Card parties and developing a team. I am now an Independent Flamingo Paperie Partner, the new name for Phoenix cards.
I have always had a passion for creating things, which lead me to a giftwrapping course in Harrogate. That was the inspiration for starting my giftwrapping business!
I held my first workshops in 2015, showing people how to make even the simplest gifts look really special and I now run my workshops at the Garden Rooms at Tennants in Leyburn.
Although I am based on the Co. Durham/North Yorkshire border, I have run luxury workshops at the 2-Michelin Starred Moor Hall Restaurant with Rooms in Ormskirk, as well as mini workshops for The Met Hotel in Leeds and at The Ned in London for Heaps + Stacks. The launch of branded giftwrap has added a new dimension to my business
At the start of 2016 an unexpected opportunity presented itself and I acquired a new business hosting events in North Yorkshire and Stockton. Chic Vintique Craft & Vintage traders sell everything from vintage and collectables to jewellery, cake and of course cards.
We’d love to see you at one of our events!
