We sell a unique collection of Spanish and Italian shoes and handbags, through our Online Shop or at home shoe parties, corporate events, fashion shows or whilst supporting a really good cause at a charity fund-raising event. We can arrange a party at any venue of your choice, so you can browse the shoes and handbags in a totally relaxed atmosphere.
We pride ourselves in providing you with an exclusive product, something that you won't see on the high street! We only ever buy in a limited quantity of any one design, so you can buy with confidence. Let us show you how the experts in shoe and handbag design can lure you into wearing something 'different', something 'extra special' but at very reasonable prices! We hope you will enjoy browsing our 'new look' website!
Well, here is where I write a little bit about me, just to give this a personal touch!
I am the founder of Shoe Devotion, born in Edgware, London, I came down to Bournemouth as a little girl with my parents and two sisters. My mother, born and bred in London and my father, born in Tenerife, Canary Islands, after spending every summer in Barcelona, visiting my aunt, I suppose I was always destined to have a love of many things Spanish and Mediterranean!
The family emigrated to Tenerife when I was a young teenager and I spent 8 years there, which is where I found my love of beautiful, good quality shoes. When I came back to the UK, I remember often thinking how boring the shoes were and how I longed to go Shoe Shopping again in Spain!
It took me many years to actually realise that dream ... after a tremendous career working for a local Engineering Company as a Sales Manager, an opportunity arose for me to create my own business, establish my own 'brand' and pursue a new venture buying and selling what nearly every woman loves. Can you imagine going to a Shoe and Handbag Fair for the 1st time, where 100's of manufacturers are selling their new designs for the next Season's Collections ... I was like a kid in a toy shop! Didn't know where to look first, how to decide which shoes to choose when there were so many wonderful and beautiful designs available. It wasn't an easy task!
I am very proud of Shoe Devotion. I'm not embarrassed to say that, after many weeks of real turmoil, trying to establish the name for my business, when it came to me I just knew it was right! I absolutely love it! And I love the Corporate Image, the Logo and sincerely hope that you all agree it oozes style and class!
Married to Kevin, he has been a tower of strength over the past 18 months! As a Graphic Designer himself, who owns Tandi Creative Media in Bournemouth, his input into the business has been invaluable. We have two wonderful children, twins of nearly 6 years of age - a boy and a girl – who are a total inspiration to me and I adore everything about them ... well, nearly everything!!
I truly hope that Shoe Devotion will inspire you to be liberated to wear something a bit different or perhaps a bit more unique, as you really won't find the designs I have to offer anywhere on the High Street. Enjoy the ride, take a chance and feel that buzz when you walk away with something just that little bit extra special!
Happy Shopping ...
