The business had a modest beginning at the Porthleven Harbour market where Vanessa and John offered an unusual collection of scarves and handbags which they had found on their travels in the Far East. Early success saw them soon grow the range to include a selection of unique clothing before seeking a permanent base which they found on Fore Street.

The enterprising couple continue to spend time with tailors and specialists around the world which is immediately apparent on visiting the shop as you soak in the colourful displays. With many items stocked singularly, there is a bespoke yet wide range to choose from an exclusive collection. A steady stream of customers are given the benefit of Vanessa’s undivided attention as she prides herself on understanding her customers and helping them make the right choice.

One reviewer on Facebook said: “This lovely shop is a hidden gem. With wonderful stylish clothes which are comfortable and will fit all sizes. If you love wearing something a little different then make sure you visit Essa soon.”
