Pocket Size Paula – Assistant Manager

Meet our Paula – aka “Pocket Size Paula” as we call her. Our little lady has a big personality and a bigger heart. Loved by our customers, Paula knows just how to keep them entertained with her happy outlook on life and with a big smile welcoming you as you walk through our door.

Sophisticated Alice – Sales Assistant

What a character – Alice finished college and took on the challenge of “The University of Life”. Trust me, working here with our gang, there is a lot to learn. For Alice, nothing is ever just plain good, it is “awesomely wonderfully good” and life is a constant pleasure as she sings good morning to you as you walk through the door (often in French).

Eagle Eye Aga – The Boss

Naturally having good taste, Aga loves the challenge of the shop and visits many trade shows and stockrooms looking for that something different to keeping the shop fresh. Having a natural attention to detail and the love of the unknown, Aga’s displays, both inside the shop and in the windows, have become a local conversation point. Aga also enjoys a good party, so likes to book “Emporium Team” nights out to celebrate any occasion.

Wonderful Emily – Sales Assistant

Emily is always smiling, always happy and is a pleasure to have in our team. Emily has a fantastic singing voice and is a top-grade star at school. Emily works with us most Saturdays and is our “Super Saturday Star”.

Chippy Chirpy Nikki – Online Assistant

New into our business, Nikki joined to become the beating heart for our online business. A chirpy happy mum of 2, Nikki is our hero behind the scenes making sure everyone gets what they ordered – fast. Nikki is our No. 1 lister of new products.

Chauffeur Richard – Chief Cook and Bottle Washer

Richard is an excellent chauffeur of balloon displays, so far, they have never complained. He is pretty good at DIY and a good listener to Aga’s challenges. Rarely seen in the shop but always in the background doing something.
