We look like this ... and here's where we are

   Black Orchid was opened in Stamford on Friday 9th April  1986 by Kate and Craig Benson in Stamford Walk.

   A few years later we moved  100 yards down the road to  7 St.Marys St. with added Aladdin's Cave  ....

  ... our  Gifts and Interiors room, and  probably the best  selection of jewellery in the area, plus a corridor of 

     beautiful and artistic cards.

   Kate is the “brains” of the operation  in charge of buying, display, windows and merchandising .

Pre  Black Orchid she worked for Monsoon and East and  has a degree in textile design .

 Craig does the other stuff … and is by and large, purely decorative. Before Black Orchid he was a primary school teacher in London and has a slightly less useful degree in Theology.
