Ally's Local Recommendations
Here is a list of local independent businesses that Ally supports and recommends you go check out. It's never been more important to shop locally and support smaller businesses.
Previously a broom cupboard, Faith and her husband Scott saw that this little nook in Bath city centre had potential. To have a premises within a craft coffee shop sounded like heaven to Faith, who is a self confessed coffee snob.
The dream continued to grow as they realised they could even squeeze in a full wash basin and reclining vintage barbering chair. A few weeks, and a lot of hard work later, Matchbox was born. To date it is the United Kingdom’s smallest unisex hair salon.
Faith is a dear friend of Ally's and has been her hair dresser since the beginning!
We are Selva Plants - an independent pop-up plant shop that specialises in a range of rare-to-find, classic and beautiful houseplants, pots, macrame plant hangers, and other plant accessories.
We, Delicia, Sam, and Juan the Van began back in September 2020, when the world was a little difficult for us all, and we felt the desire to share the love for plants that we had. Since then we have loved getting to know our customers at markets and pop-up events, working with new businesses to transform their spaces, and bringing together local makers and creatives to stock their products with us.
Ally called on Selva Plant Project to provide plants for the treatment room. Sam was so helpful and sourced fantastic quality plants that suit the space perfectly.
