This is us, I’m Laura and this is Poppy my 16 month old daughter. She is the reason that Pop & Punch now exists, this crazy little girl gave me the nudge I needed to finally open the shop I have always wanted to own.
I wanted to spend the time with Poppy so obviously finally starting the business I have always dreamed of was the best way to do that. Pop & Punch is the realisation of my dream to have an interiors shop. As with all dreams, it has developed over time and a big reason of why I chose older children’s interiors and decor is because of my gorgeous nieces. Talking to my sister-in-law trying to decorate their new rooms, the trouble was having to use so many websites, pay soo many shiping charges and wait in for endless deliveries. I decided I wanted to be a one stop shop for children’s and teens interiors and decor. We are starting small and will expand and add furniture to our range as soon as we aren’t using the spare room for stock storage.
My other half, Ed, is a digital marketing genius apparently (his own words) and has been the incredible driving force that has kept me going though all the planning and set up. He’s also pretty handy as well, he helps me a lot with the business as well as taking on loads more at home and with Pops so that I have the time I need to work. He has been an incredible sounding board, source of advise and Wealth of advertising advise throughout the set up. He even recons one day he’ll come work with me (we all know I’m the boss, so work for me).
I have loved finding the right brands to open the shop with look forward to the future and all the exciting brands I have lined up to show you all. So take your time, browse the website and let me know what you think, in fact i would love to know what you think of it all!
