Another new business venture is starting out in the village. Ellie Whitehall is an Independent Phoenix Trader selling quality UK produced, Forest Stewardship Commission (FSC) accredited greetings cards, gift wrap, note cards and stationery which are not available in the shops.
Ellie offers her range through informal in-home events called ‘Coffee and Cards’ where a few friends are invited or she can just bring some cards and brochures. Ellie also provides baskets of products/samples or brochures in the workplace, and attends Craft markets, Christmas fetes, mother and toddler groups, school fairs, fundraising events etc.
Originally from Nottingham, Ellie moved to Milford on Sea in November 2013 as she had wanted to live by the sea for a long time and Milford of course seemed to be the perfect place. She loves being part of the village, and with her partner David, enjoy walks along the beach and tasting the culinary delights in the restaurants and pubs. she is also now a member of the village choir, and looking forward to being more involved in village life.
Ellie will be having a stall at the Milford on Sea May Fayre on Monday 5th May where you can buy some of the Phoenix range and she can also be found some Saturday mornings at St. Thomas’ Church hall in Lymington.
Ellie says that Phoenix is a business that is fun, flexible and family friendly, and she is always looking for people to join her team as way to earn some extra income, be part of a team and meet new people.
