Four years after it opened its doors, womenswear boutique Pipa finished 2012 on a high, with its best year of trading yet. Owner Bhavna Boesen says the store was overflowing with customers at a pre-Christmas party, many of whom have shopped there since the beginning.
One fan described Pipa as “a lovely gem of a boutique”, and it’s not hard to see why. The eclectic store combines antique furniture and pieces from the Far East with great products at accessible prices.
In the past 12 months, Pipa launched a website to grow its customer base, and plans to develop it further this year.
