Hello and welcome to Lusciously Loopy!
My name is Lynn. I am loving this time of my life. At 58 I have finally found my dream job and am happily selling and creating in my small corner of beautiful Cumbria.
I set up Lusciously Loopy four years ago and began selling my crochet creations on Etsy. Things soon moved on when I ventured into the world of yarn selling.
I adore yarn and aim to offer you the best possible quality at a reasonable price. Customer service is hugely important to me and I will try my utmost to ensure your experience with me is a good one.
When I set out it was with the hope of doing a job that I loved and to be able to integrate my work life and family life as seamlessly as possible. So far, so good! On track and enjoying the process.
I work alone although I do have two willing volunteers in the shape of a wonderful and supportive husband and daughter should help be needed. Jude (my Mum) is now a regular helper filling shelves once a week and sorting the stockroom side of things out. At 75 she puts me to shame with her energy!
“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” - Kurt Vonnegut
This venture is me jumping off a cliff and developing my wings.
I started off small with the intention of adding a wider range of yarn and knitting and crochet accessories and over the last four years that has gradually happened. I will continue to add to the brands of yarn I stock and also the ranges of crochet and craft kits I create.
It has been an exciting and extremely rewarding time since Loopy began and I look forward to growing the business in the coming years.
I have M.E. I mention this not because it defines who I am but because it does have a bearing on my story. In 1994 I had to leave my job working as a senior manager based in Liverpool for a large discount chain store. It was heart breaking and it took many years for me to come to terms with the changes imposed by illness. However I now look at it as a blessing. The changes I was forced to make brought me to where I am now.
Please don't worry that this will impact on the service I provide. In the four years I have been running Loopy I have found ways to manage the M.E whilst being fully able to operate in a way that provides all you would expect from your experience shopping at Lusciously loopy. I work full time and offer a professional service with a quick turnaround for your orders. Under normal circumstances (barring situations outside my control) orders placed before 12 pm are posted the same day. I have a host of very happy customers who come back time and again and also spread the word so that band of customers is constantly growing. If you haven't shopped here before why not give it a go :) Lynn xx
