Having left school at 16 without a GCSE to my name, my first job was as a post-room assistant working for a recruitment agency. Within a year I'd left and started up my own business, Keyword Secretarial Services at the age of just 17.

A few years on and I took on secretarial work for the 'Orchant' family and soon became their PA working for their chain of petrol stations. In 1997 C.Gars Ltd was born and I have been the Website Manager for this company (Director: Mr Orchant) since then, building my first website using a 'Website for Dummies' book! I'm self taught and now have extensive knowledge of Google, SEO development and general website techniques.

Back in 2006, alongside C.Gars Ltd, I set up my own business. Snuggleshoes, which sells a range of ladies wedding and evening shoes at affordable prices. Hand in hand, Snuggleshoes and GreatGiftsEtc can provide you with all the wedding extras you need including favours, bridesmaid/page boy gifts, confetti, stag/hen accessories, guestbook's, photo frames, the list goes on!

In my early 30's I decided to go back to college and achieved an A level in Business Studies (Grade A).

I'm now studying (In my spare time!) for a psychology degree with the Open University.

My ethos has always remained the same... 'First class customer service is the key to any business'. I like my customers to be treated in the way that I would wish to be treated. It is indeed true, the customer is always right :) Of course this makes me a nightmare shopper!

We aim to get orders shipped the same day, supply great quality products at affordable prices and above all ensure the customer is always happy. How can we go wrong :)
