About eclectica

Jodie and Vicki

Our shop, eclectica, was born from a shared passion for unique and beautiful clothing and accessories.

We met whilst working in fashion retail in Ludlow and became firm friends over Prosecco and a shared love of helping people feel great about themselves.

Our philosophy at eclectica is to source gorgeous fashion, accessories and lifestyle products from around the world which range in price from the everyday essential to the decadent treat.

Every brand is tried and tested by us first and you'll often see us wearing items from brands which we've loved enough to buy for ourselves.

We will try to specialise in unique brands which are high-quality and are backed by manufacturers who have the same passion for customers as eclectica itself.



After spending 20 years in London's creative publishing industry working with photographers to create the perfect look, I moved to Ludlow in 2013 for a richer community life. In the past I've run a personal shopping and styling consultancy, and I'm a passionate believer that little treats can make a girl feel more confident about herself.



I am a Shropshire girl through and through having been brought up on Clee Hill. I moved away at 19 but the elastic pull that seems to bring people back here brought me back before 30 to make my home on the hill and raise my kids in the countryside.

Like the name of our shop I've had an eclectic range of jobs; from travel agent, teacher of English and briefly a bank clerk!

When Jodie asked me whether I would consider running a shop with her I was elated. I started out in retail and may well end my working life in it. Becoming self-employed fulfills a life ambition - doing it at 50 scares me silly but at least I know I'm still alive! Bring it on!!
