Hello, my name is Susie Buckle and I set up this business back in 1994 not long after the birth of my son Jonathan after reading an article in one of the weekend magazines.
I started by selling second hand designer curtains and soft furnishings from a shop on London Road, St Albans called the Curtain Connection.
In the early 2000's I decided to close the shop and change the focus to selling through our website and this is how we have continued to this day, although now of course 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 actually see me and my partner, now known as Mr DV to those of you who follow us on Facebook, on the video but only for about a millisecond at about 1.08 minutes in. Don't blink or you'll miss us!!!
It may sound a bit trite (no apologies required) but we really do believe in sustainability and stopping great quality curtains from going to landfill is a bit of a no-brainer. We even use special boxes to pack our curtains in called 'Enviro Boxes' and you can find out more about them HERE. Occasionally curtains do come back to us and by using the same box to return your curtains you are helping us in our quest to make a difference.
The curtains we get in from clients have gone literally all over the world and the only continent we haven't sent curtains to (yet!) is South America. Second hand does not mean second rate and all our curtains can and do have another life once they leave us for a new home.
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!
In other news we recently featured in a lovely blog by Janice Issitt Life & Style and you can read it HERE and also a great feature written by the lovely people at Fasthosts who host our website and this you can find HERE!
