Carlene was so helpful the other week and has been in the past as well on about 3 occasions.

I was looking for a hat for my son’s wedding-we tried last month but it was too early for the new season hats so Carlene advised a good time to come back, whilst I was in the changing room with my wedding outfit on she found more hats/fascinators for me to try and we found the perfect one-the one in store was damaged so she suggested ordering it online so it would be brand new and well packaged-she helped me with the instore process and it arrived 2 days later.

I find her very helpful-she listens to what I want/need and is considerate in helping to find it. Thanks for providing this service-I’ve recommended it to many friends.
