A NEW ‘feel good’ luxury retail space has opened its doors to the public for the first time.

The store Luxury Bubble is located on Silver Street and opened at 10am today, (Thursday, November 11). The shop is so-named because owner Sian Currie used to call having 'time out' a luxury bubble. The name stuck.  

Inside, the shop has an elegant feel to it. There is a variety of products - from clothes, to jewellery to make up and homeware items. Customers will find British, Danish and Dutch brands. 

Sian said: "It's a lifestyle store."

Having previously called it a 'a teeny-weeny department store' due to its eclectic mix of products, there is something of interest for everyone.

Many of the clothes are colour co-ordinated and the layout of the shop makes it easy to browse.  

Sian said: "I think we took over the lease 10 days ago and have turned it around very quickly. As a result, only the ground floor is open, and we haven't finished upstairs."

When the first floor is finished, it will become a personal shopping area, a waiting room, and a beauty area.  She is hoping the wellness area will be set up within a couple of weeks. 

Sian said: "The first floor will be for beauty customers and for our VIP's. Because we have a shop in Fordingbridge already, we have a loyalty scheme, so when people make purchases, they can use those points and go upstairs and have a nice glass of prosecco with a friend."

"Almost everything here is available to purchase, but people can also make purchases online or go to our shop in Fordingbridge. There are totally different brands in both stores. The only thing that is similar is the homeware or beauty products."

Sian said: "I think any boutique will reflect the taste of the person who does the buying, it is different than if you are in a department store, I choose things that I like, I am relatively conservative, but the clothes often have something a little bit different about them."

There is also the potential to bring workshops to the store as this has been successful with customers in Fordingbridge.
