Making your creative mark, with Eleanor Tattersfield, founder of Marby & Elm

This week on Conversations of Inspiration, Holly speaks to Eleanor Tattersfield, founder of Marby & Elm. A fellow stationary addict, Holly joined Eleanor in her east London emporium like shop to hear her journey from student and waitress to Liberty stockist and business founder.

This episode covers everything from where Eleanor finds her inspiration, to running a high street space, customer experience in retail and the importance of community.

So open, funny and self-deprecating - Eleanor offers such useful tips and advice on how to approach some of the biggest retailers like Liberty, as well as thoughts on setting up a retail space and what it means to run a family business.

Born to entrepreneurial parents, the seed of running her own business was planted from an early age, but it was only after having her children and a chance google for some personalised stationery and a spontaneous purchase of a letterpress off eBay - that Eleanor found her true calling.
