Meet the Team

Hi my name is Nicola and I am the owner and creator of Florence & Amelia’s.  I opened Florence & Amelia's in October 2014 and I can safely say it's been the best (and scariest) decision I've ever made.  Prior to opening Florence & Amelia's I  spent the majority of my working life in a law firm in Manchester.  My favourite jobs in this shop are ordering all our lovely products, restoring tired old furniture and designing the window displays.  I love holding the paint workshops and chatting with all our amazing customers.  When I'm not in the shop I'm usually trying to restore our Victorian house (the film "Money Pit" springs to mind) or just hanging out with my boys, going to the cinema and family meals.  I really hope you enjoy browsing our online store and if you're ever in Stalybridge please pop in and say hi.
Hi! My name is Freya Healey and I’m 17 years young. I started working at Florence & Amelia’s in the October of 2017 just in time for the shop’s 3-year anniversary! I heard about the job after spending 4 weeks in Uganda with Nicola’s son on a Duke of Edinburgh expedition with West Hill School (my mum is a Food Technology teacher there). I’m currently an A-Level student in my second year at Ashton Sixth Form College studying English Literature, History and Religious Studies in hopes of studying Law at university. Working at the shop has given me the opportunity to expand my work experience and gain valuable insight into the world of work and true customer service, something that Nicola has taught me lots about. I thoroughly enjoyed Art in school and working in the shop also allows me to continue artistic interests through up-cycling old furniture and developing original ideas. There’s never a dull moment working in the shop, I love every second of it, and I honestly couldn’t ask for a better boss (she hasn’t paid me to say that). I’ll be very sad when the time comes soon for me to leave to go to university, but I’ll be very grateful to Nic for the experience working in the shop has given me.
Hi! My name is Noah Buckley and I’m Nicola’s 11-year-old son. I have been helping out at Florence & Amelia’s since the beginning. I normally help out with the technical side of the shop. For instance, this website. As of July 2018, I am now finishing my first year at West Hill School. Working at the shop has helped me expand in my technical ability and I spend a lot of time with my mum. I enjoy helping out most of the time however sometimes I prefer to be somewhere else doing kid stuff. I also help out with other things than the shop as I was the main person who created the Stalybridge Town Team Website. I also help out with the computers at my Grandad’s business.  I have always liked ICT and have always had a knack for picking ICT related things up quickly. I've gained the vast majority of my technical ability by trying things out on my PC. At West Hill School I am a top set student and I hope to achieve high grades in Year 11.
