About Us

Me . . . . . .

Hello, my name is Suzy Buckle and I set up my own business back in 1994 not long after the birth of our son Jonathan through reading an article in one of the weekend magazines.

I started by selling second hand designer curtains and soft furnishings from a shop called Curtain Connection on London Road in St Albans. In 2002 I decided to close the shop and change the focus to selling through other shops and online and this is how we have continued to this day, although now there are our various social media channels as well.

One of my favourite personal highlights so far was being part of the Vintage Festival on Southbank in 2011, which was just so much fun! You can see me and my partner, now known as Mr DV to those of you who follow us on Facebook, actually on the video but only for about a millisecond at about 1.08 minutes in. Don't blink or you'll miss us!!! 

. . . . . And my Business

All our secondhand/pre-loved curtains are on display at our main showroom on Coursers Farm just outside St Albans (see our map on the Contact Us page) and we are open here on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 10am and 1pm.

Our other showroom is inside St Martins Antiques at Stamford and we are usually there every other Wednesday but best to ring us first to check we're actually going to be there and what time!

Our main online selling channel is through the Shop on this website, where we have introduced a search facility so you can search for both the type of curtains (Category) and the number of pairs (Tag).

We also sell through our eBay site, Susies Emporium, which is full of quality curtains at the more inexpensive end of the spectrum, especially for those on a tight budget and Landlords looking to furnish rental properties.

Another area we try and make good use of are our various social media channels, Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter.


If you want to get in touch or ask a question or send us details and measurements of curtains you are looking for, use the form on the Contact Us Page or ring us on one of the two telephone numbers at the bottom of this page and thanks for visiting our site!
