Room31 started life on Bury market in Lancashire selling discounted ladies branded & unbranded fashion. I was cold and at times lonely as well as a little poor so decided to start selling surplus stock on eBay with the vision that I could build a successful online store. The name Room31 came along after a few glasses of Sauvignon oohh and the fact that my stall number was 31, I was 31 at the time and didn't simply want my stall having a name like 'ruth's fashion'. The eBay side of business grew but my passion and real dream was to have a young ladies fashion website that blended branded and unbranded clothing at affordable prices and so was born www.room31.co.uk
When you start out in business it needs to be about your passion....the money comes later.
