Meet the team

Hannah Ashford, CEO

Alessia Sheldon, Retail & Community Fundraising Manager

With 15 years of experience in high-end London retail and design, Alessia arrived in North Devon on a mission to find a new life by the coast, and rewarding work with depth and integrity. Through fundraising fashion events and a little serendipity she was introduced to the work of North Devon Against Domestic Abuse and the RE:STORE charity shops were born – offering aspirational fashion-focused shopping at affordable prices in modern, design-led interiors. More recently, another fresh look at the fashion world in North Devon has seen the opening of RE:LOVE – a dress agency where customers sell high-quality designer items through the shop or website, with the proceeds shared between the customer and the charity.

Alessia attributes the shop’s success to being brave, having hearty ethics, and making work fun for the team of volunteers who support the shops.
