biography the story so far...


Twenty years ago, a northern chef met a southern book editor.
They had fun and holidays and BIG ideas.
After they had married and 
bought a lovely house,
they were lucky enough to fill it with some children.

A few years on, their big bad wolf-employers
were very much becoming a nuisance,

so the chef and the editor made plans to
leave their employers in the forest – and go it alone.
This allowed them to work together, and pursue their dreams.

Soon, the (former) chef and the (former) editor 
– along with their young family – 
were visiting French brocantes and vide greniers,

sourcing lots of beautiful decorative antiques 

which they began to sell to customers across the world.

Then one day, it suddenly occured to them: they had
magically transformed into antique dealers,

making their own decisions and shaping new
business ideas
based on a shared passion for
quality design and pleasing aesthetics.

They are the HAIRSINES, and they all continue
to live very happily
in a Cambridgeshire village.

Their journey continues.
