Just over a month ago, I mentioned a fab woman that I interviewed her for a feature I wrote for Aspire Magazine. I promised to say a little more about her and her business once the magazine went to print.
Sheri McDonagh is a mother of four with a background in operational customer service, who after a serious illness decided she wanted a change in career. She opened Munchkins, a treasure trove, an Aladdin’s Cave of beautiful home accessories, jewellery, gifts and women’s clothing in Skipton in 2012.
Munchkins stocks well-known brands including Di Palomo, an indulgent range of bath, body and fragrance products, Wrendale homeware and greetings cards and Dansk, a beautiful and elegant jewellery collection from Copenhagen. A new brand is Marmalade of London. All products are handmade in the UK and the range of candles, reed diffusers and bath and body products is exquisite.
It is so beautiful in there and everything is very much to my taste so I spent rather a long while browsing after we had finished "work" which was actually a lovely chat and not really an interview.
The clothing collection is all Italian designs, all a little unusual and all very stylish. There is a comfortable and spacious changing area upstairs on the first floor and Sheri regularly opens up out of hours to meet customers’ specific needs.
I came away with this gorgeous double-layered navy top which has the cutest bow on the back (full outfit details here).
So, if you are visiting Skipton, do go and say hello to Sheri and tell her I sent you. She'll offer you a warm, friendly Yorkshire welcome and you can browse to your heart's content.
