Antoinette Lawrence AKA Nettie

A bit about me....

I started out my business venture by making 'dotty' scallop shells and selling them in my kiosk, The Last Fisherman Cafe in Walton on the Naze until one day a friend sent me the idea of decoupaging scallop shells. I tried it out with 3 designs; the blue and white floral, the nautical boats in red/white and the blue and white fish shell. Needless to say, they sold like hotcakes. I was then requested to make some butterflies, and then cats, and then lobsters, giraffes, elephant... etc etc.. My business grew tenfold! 
I then thought of the idea to make up some christmas shells to sell at fairs through the winter. I booked into many local events and also at the Bury St Edmunds Fayer!! The business EXPLODED... I can barely keep up with the demand of online orders through my facebook page. Hence i have now created this website to help people browse alone and add items to a basket without the need to relay instructions. Although i am still here if you need any help :)
