Our Team

Any small independent shop will say that the team that works there is the key to their success.

We are all so lucky to be a part of an amazing team of ladies. It’s the thing that gives the shop al buzz and makes it so welcoming – so that our lovely customers return to see us time and time again

So- let us introduce you to our team:

I’m Monika and I’m mum to my beautiful little girl called Martha. She is my whole world. My journey with Stocks began in March 2017 when the shop in Henley opened.

Sandie, who I have known for years, told me she planned to open another branch in Stockbridge and asked if I would manage the new shop for her. I feel very honoured to be the part of the Stocks team.

I worked full time until my precious little girl was born. Now I’m working part time. I am always happy to be in the shop to tell you all about our beautiful and carefully selected stock and to offer any advice you may need. I look forward to welcoming you to our Stockbridge shop very soon.

Hi! I’m Cath

I have worked in retail and managed shops of all sizes for 35 years.
I first met Sandie as a customer in the shop where I worked. I jokingly asked Sandie if she had any jobs at her shop in Henley and started a few weeks later.

When Sandie opened Stocks at the Vine in Stockbridge, I then shared my time between the Henley and Stockbridge shops. I have the perfect job and genuinely look forward to going to work. The whole team are amazing and we feel like a family. Customer service is our passion. I cannot tell you just how proud it makes me feel when customers say how much they love our shop and the wonderful things we sell. I can’t wait to welcome you, so do pop in to see us if you find yourself in Stockbridge. I’m a chatterbox so come with plenty of time!

Hi I’m Sue and have been working with Sandie and the team at Stocks at the Vine for three years now

Having owned and run a cookshop shop for 23 years in West London, and having closed it two years previously after moving down to Hampshire, I had never planned to work in someone else’s business. But, after popping into the shop for a nose when it first opened, I got chatting to the lovely Monika, who could quickly tell that I knew a thing or two about retail. She immediately asked if I was willing to come and help out and I simply couldn’t resist. I love retail and had missed working as a team! I now help both in the shop and from home, working on our online presence and various retail channels.

Switching to fashion after selling cookware has been such fun, although far too tempting being surrounded by so many gorgeous things!

Hello. I’m Philippa and I’m the newest member of the team of lovely ladies in Stockbridge. I’ve worked in retail for several years and love taking care of our customers.

I really enjoy working in Stocks at the Vine. I spend my working days surrounded by such gorgeous, diverse and high-quality products, and I love that so many are ethically sourced, sustainable, and made from recycled materials. Buying these products helps support local communities, charities and conservation projects around the world. This ethos is very close to my heart.

I love spending time with our customers and bringing a smile to their faces when they are trying a new outfit or seeking out that special gift. It’s lovely to know that I have helped to brighten someone’s day!
