In 2007 husband and wife, Matthew & Sue, formed Thomas & Lucia, an eCommerce business selling on their own website, Amazon, eBay and in their shop based in Christchurch, Dorset. Thomas & Lucia become a favorite local destination for home and garden accessories and gifts. In addition, we became one of the largest stockists of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ and ran official Chalk Paint™ workshops teaching hundereds of people how to use this amazning product. In September 2018, the shop was closed so that they could concentrate on a number of specialist services namely, furniture and kitchen unit painting using Chalk Paint™ and, in Sue's case, garden consultations and makeovers.
