Drapers Inspiring Indies 2013

Hurray! Check us out at no16 on Drapers' list of inspring independents.

Winchester indie The Hambledon is full of charm, from its gallery-like interior to the Georgian building that houses it. Owner Victoria Suffield loves her shop and enthuses: 'Shopkeeping is truly the best job in the world'. Combining fashion with a lifestyle offer, which includes bath and beauty products, books stationery and children's gifts, customers are often surprised by the scale of the store. Several areas of the shopwere redeveloped last year to allow for dedicated bath and beauty and stationery departments, as well as a project space to host temporary exhibitions. The Hambledon's website was also re-launched, and Suffield says making it profitable will be a focus in 2013.
