Hi! Welcome to Polka Dots and Petticoats!
We are an online business based at our offices in Suffolk, established in 2013.
I'm Jackie - the lady behind the business. A lover of all things shabby chic, vintage style and pretty, I particularly love the 40's and 50's and am a big fan of gorgeous ladies Audrey Hepburn, Doris Day and Grace Kelly. My aim with Polka Dots and Petticoats is to bring all the things I love under one roof. You will find a wide and varied range of pretty items - perfect as presents for all occasions, or as a treat for yourself! From scarves to handbags, cushions to candles, you will be sure to find something different and exciting!
My philosophy is to choose items for the shop which I would like to receive as a gift, or have in my home. All new stock is chosen by me and a lot of time goes into picking the perfect pretties!
Kelly is our Social Media Assistant, who helps manage our Facebook and Members Club Group pages. If you message, comment or contact us on Facebook, it will be either Kelly or I who gets back to you.
CLAIRE & RACHEL
are our Office Assistants, who help day to day in the office and Dress Room.
If you visit us for an appointment, or to collect an order, you will see either Claire or Rachel, as well as myself.
We are a small business and offer a personal, friendly and bespoke service. If you place an order with us, you won't get next day delivery or same day dispatch as you do with larger companies. However, you WILL get an personal service and a consistent, caring approach. I personally pick, giftwrap, pack and check all orders myself, but this care and attention takes time. I appreciate you spending your hard earned cash in my little shop, and we will do my best to make your shopping experience an enjoyable one, from start to finish.
Please note we don't stock large quantities of each item. We like to keep things fresh and new, and stock can turn over very quickly, particularly dresses. If you fall in love with any of our products, we would recommend ordering as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.
I hope that the personal, friendly and helpful service we provide will encourage you to come back again and again, and make you a regular Polka Dots and Petticoats customer!
I hope you will enjoy browsing the shop and will find something you love.
