Our Story


 

Our names are Lauren and Robin and we own The Hendersons. 

The idea started back in early 2014 when we decided that our love and passion for vintage could become a great base for a business. Before we knew it we were at our local auction house, putting our hands up to buy products we loved that we could see in our own home, in the beginning our main base was stalls at local flea markets and vintage fairs where we could sell our pieces and meet other like minded people.

From there we thought the next logical step would be to create a permanent base for us to sell our belongings, and we went looking for a small shop to call our own, and we soon fell in love with a wonky shop in the heart of Rochester. Over the past couple of years our business has expanded and our product range has grown with it.

As we grew our small shop could no longer cope with our products and ambition so we decided to close doors and concentrate our time to our expanding online business, we do our best to bring you the best quality unique gifts from around the world to enjoy as much as we do.

With our backgrounds in art and design we had always had an eye for unusual items, we often found ourselves browsing antiques fairs and makers markets buying things to fill our home and as we grew we looked to find beautiful products made by independent makers and illustrators which we could sell in our store so more people could enjoy the products as much as we do.
