About Us

I set up Aster in 2011 after struggling to find a gift for a friend's wedding that was personal, different and good quality. I decided there and then that there must be a solution...and Aster was born! The aim is to make the shopping experience an enjoyable one, and allow the customer to buy everything in one place. I was also adamant that the website should be postage free and offer a complimentary gift wrap service, as these would be the things that I would like!

My family has had a long history in retail and both my Great Grandfather and Grandmother were involved in the business in Oswestry, Shropshire. My Great Grandmother, Annie Ellis opened a small china shop for my Grandfather, Norman in 1938. This was called N.S.Ellis and with my Grandparents eventually moving to London, my Mum subsequently was put in charge! I have fantastic memories of my visits to the shop, and even better ones of working there as I got older.

Unfortunately, the shop closed in 1996, but one of the lessons that I learnt from my involvement was that customer service is the key to any sale. The staff prided themselves on giving a good shopping experience and that is something I have tried to emulate with my own business.

We are always looking for fantastic products to sell on our website. If you think you have a collection that we may be interested in stocking, please use the "contact us" form to send us some information and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for having a look around and I hope you find something that you like. If you have a question about any of the items or just wish to give any feedback about the website please contact us

Thanks again,

Sian Boffey
