Introducing Hayley

Instagram @Southwoodstores – Hayley – 21.4k followers

Vintage Scoops was the second business that Hayley had launched, the first was a specialist boutique Nursery School in East Northants called Little Stars which is still thriving today.

Vintage Scoops was born in 2010. With little to no budget for marketing Hayley taught herself about social media, hit Twitter in a big way and was an early embracer of Instagram. Her business grew by word of mouth driven by her ever-growing social media following.  Over an 18 month period Mrs Scoops and her vintage ice cream van were featured in over 100 publications including YOU magazine and Country Homes.

Work for Hayley had always been about earning money and fitting in around bringing up her two boys (now teenagers) so after owning and running Vintage Scoops for 3 years Hayley felt better about life and wanted her weekends back. This was time to re-invent herself and move on to pastures new, with a large following on Social Media Hayley launched her blog along with a photographer she had met through the wedding industry. ‘Breathe Happiness’ was an instant success. Whilst blogging Hayley was racking her brains trying to come up with another business idea that could draw on the experience and knowledge she had gained.

With a passion for styling and a love of the creative world Hayley decided to curate a collection of quirky home-wares and clothing that you couldn’t find on the high street. In August 2013 Hayley announced through her blog that she was going to launch Southwood Stores. Her understanding and passion for social media gave her the launch pad that she needed.
