Meet the stockist | Vanessa from Bumblebee

Bumble Bee is an independent fashion boutique in the heart of Jesmond.

We caught up with Vanessa to find out some more about her!

What did you want to be when you were little?

An actress! 

What makes you happy?

Sunshine on my shoulders...

What does your typical weekend consist of?

Time in the shop, walks with the dogs and my husband and usually a houseful of our daughters friends.

How did you get into fashion?

I have always loved clothes. My mother used to call me a clotheshorse... (rude)! So naturally it made sense to spend time indulging my passion.


What makes Bumble Bee brilliant?

Our staff! We have the best stylists in town!


If you weren’t running Bumble Bee what would you like to have done with your career? What would be your Plan B?

I was a teacher and hated it, I couldn't do anything that tied me down... So I suppose I’d have to crack Hollywood!

What does ‘being comfortable’ mean to you?

Alpaca bed socks and everyone in my family being safe.

What would your ideal shoe look like? And where would you wear it?

Trainers all day long! If I could wear them for a black tie event I definitely would!

What’s your favourite Air & Grace style?

I love the Cru trainers!
