Wiltshire artisan retailer PinkBox appoints first ‘gift curator’

By Anita Jaynes on 29 July, 2016

PinkBox Boutique, the Wiltshire-based multi-channel retailer offering artisan products suitable for friends, family or business colleagues has appointed its first ‘gift curator’.

Liz Denbury has joined the PinkBox team offering Boutique@Home shopping parties for a great night in with friends, charitable causes or any social event.

She said: “I’m thrilled to be part of PinkBox. I’m already going out and taking part in fairs and doing Boutique@Home parties. I thoroughly enjoy the one-to-one role with the customer, finding out what their needs are and helping them select inspired gifts which are often locally produced.”

Liz is also supporting PinkBox at its HQ in Meadow Barn, Coate, near Devizes with the day-to-day logistics of managing a busy retail business and meeting hub for local people and business owners.

She started her career in the fashion industry rising to the role of manager but then left to have a family. She’s married to Andrew and they have two children, Poppy aged ten and Morgan, eight. Liz, who lives in Devizes,  re-trained as a chef including running a school kitchen and met PinkBox founder Kerry Gover at a Christmas fair late last year.

Kerry : “I was looking for somebody who would have a passion for products, people and who had a strong desire to start a business of their own and offer great customer service. Liz’s passion shone through and I thought that’s the person I need for PinkBox. Several months on, here she is as part of the team.”

PinkBox Boutique was created by Kerry three years ago with the aim of reducing the pressure of choosing inspiring gifts. PinkBox offers a wide range of high quality products in a single place – many created by local suppliers including Wiltshire Chilli Farm, Hive Originals, In a Pickle, Stainswick Farm Rapeseed Oils and Pink & Green skincare. It is also one of the only outlets in Wiltshire to stock the unusual range of quirky handbags made by Vendula.

The business has strong ethical values, buying in products from the UK where possible and supporting smaller businesses. It offers an artisan food range which contains no artificial colourings, ingredients, preservatives, skincare with no SLS, parabens or silicones and clean burning candles free from paraffin wax.

Earlier this year, PinkBox moved into a larger HQ, Meadow Barn, Coate in Devizes and has now opened a ‘hub’ facility where people can meet, run workshops or small events or shop privately by appointment.
