In November 2003, RE was born in a small converted workshop at the back of a filling station in Corbridge, a small market town in north east England and was followed by our first mail order catalogue in May 2004.
After careers in fashion design we both wanted a new challenge and with years of comparative shopping experience, and inspired by some of the stores we visited globally, we decided to set up shop.
There's no point attempting to shoehorn the range of RE's stock into a paragraph, but if you do need a plaster Virgin Mary and a bottle of the best bubble bath in the world, this is the place.
We have a huge cross section of customers, and everyone goes out with something - even if it's just a smile on their face!
More of our products are presented online; our most REcent finds, some favourites; some raRE or REmarkable; some REcycled; some REscued and REstored; and look out for REgd. - our unique range of originals and textiles designed by RE, and made locally whenever possible.
