EVE & RANSHAW
With a history spanning 235 years, Eve & Ranshaw in Louth’s Market Place certainly understands the local community. Whilst business may have changed over the years, the ethos is still clear: get it right for the customer, get it right for the area, get it right for us.

2015 saw Eve & Ranshaw placed firmly on the map (or TV screen) after they appeared on Channel 4’s Running the Shop. With the ‘boss’ out of the way for three weeks, the staff were left running the business to try to boost profits. The staff were left with a task or creating a new beauty salon, which is still going strong a year down the line. Although David Sandwith, Eve & Ranshaw’s current owner, has moved the salon to a new location on the first floor, he is pleased with the new profile the business has following the fly-on-the-wall documentary.

“We’re still reaping the benefits from appearing on the show. It not only raised our profile, but it also let the wider world know about the business and Louth,” said David.

BESPOKE CLOTHING MADE TO MEASURE
After studying fashion and design at university, Natasha Long opened her first business in Belarus before moving to England three years ago, where she has since opened Natasha Long in Pen Street, Boston.

Specialising in creating key one-off pieces for her clients, Natasha can create bespoke wedding dresses, mother of the bride outfits, bridesmaids dresses and evening and special occasion outfits. For men, Natasha can also create key pieces and handmade suits are made to measure, although she also hires out men’s suits from her hire department.

For those looking for something a bit different, Natasha also creates theatre costumes and fancy dress outfits.

Natasha prides herself on her fabric which can range from £20psqm to £400psqm. Her fabrics come from all over the world including Italy, France, England and Scotland and include cotton, silks and laces.
