Our small business is owned by Lisa and Ian Scott from Tauranga, New Zealand.
After living in Canada for a few years and not only falling in love with my Canadian husband, I also fell in love with Espe handbags and wallets! Previously, I hadn't been much of a handbag kinda girl (I was more interested in carrying a backpack) but there was just something that really caught my eye with this brand - the colours, the quirkiness and the different yet functional styles. It was great to own something different from everyone else.
When we moved back to NZ from Canada in 2010, I knew that I (and mum) couldn't be the only kiwi women to love Espe handbags and wallets! I had always thought there was a gap in the market here as I had never seen anything close to this fabulous brand. My mother-in-law had kindly keep me up-to-date with various bags for Christmas and my birthday but that just wasn't enough for me.
That's when we established Snazzy Shop. I just knew I had to share my love and passion for their products - it was time to bring Espe to NZ!
