Cinderella’s Dress Hire’ started out in 2007 as a home based business by Sarah. As the business became increasing more successful I needed to increase stock levels to accommodate a growing client base.

The positive feedback I received from clients encouraged me to push forward an already very attractive idea, so in February 2009 I opened a premises in Shanklin.

I then introduced a traditional Tea Room, serving tea and cakes on vintage china, which has proved very popular with clients, residents and visitors to the island. This is when I met Toni, who also had a dream of opening a traditional tea room!

Pulling our ideas together has enabled us to introduce more to the business, including childrens tea parties, workshops and allowing hobbyists to use our space and share ideas.
