A businesswoman has launched a new online shop that will showcase some of the region’s best kitchen table entrepreneurs.

Rachel Doran’s new business, EliseandFleur, will provide a platform for South West makers of food, garden, home and lifestyle products.

Rachel comments: “In the current economic climate I noticed that people are increasingly looking for value for money.

“The idea for Elise & Fleur came from a desire for people to be able to buy items that are often unique but don’t carry a hefty price tag.

“There is a price ceiling on our products of around £40 per item.

“All of the products are being sold to support micro businesses, run by kitchen table entrepreneurs and mumpreneurs, which I believe are the economic life blood of the country.

There are more than 30 makers who have already been selected by the site.

Nicky and Abbey Massey from Yeovil in Somerset, who make handbags and a variety of different illustrations respectively, are amongst those already selected for the site.
