The story of my life...

"Its time for change... I'm retiring!!" is what I said after a happy, long career in the agricultural and food smoking business for 40 years. The days of driving hundreds of miles every week across country while daydreaming about Breakfast and reading the newspaper on beautiful summer mornings were in the past now.... I was living the life!!

Then one day I bumped into an old friend Richard, who joyfully told me he was retiring and that his business of 30 years was for sale. By the end of our chat I had bought his business Capital Cashmere. Yes, back on the road again and haven't looked back in almost 3 years! I quickly realised that as much as I enjoyed retirement I was missing the face to face contact with people and the razzmatazz of business life just as much.

In order for me to manage this successful business I had to know how it all ticked, and understanding the products were key. I became an expert at navigating my way around Youtube to find as many stories on Cashmere as I could. More Importantly I kept James, he was Richards sales assistant for Capital Cashmere for many years and is a cashmere expert in his own right. Cassie is my life partner and my assistant, and comes from a Sales Management background. She has a passion for cashmere and works tirelessly at overseeing the accounting side of Capital Cashmere. She enjoys being out at events whenever time allows.

The Covid 19 lockdown gave me the opportunity to contact my loyal customers, with reassurance that once back at the wheel again, we will continue to offer the best, most luxurious cashmere garments at incredible prices.

We take pride in ourselves by 'going the extra mile' and always offer first class customer service to our valued customers.

Thank you for taking the time to read a snippet of my life. We look forward to seeing you at an event near you soon.
