Read about us below.

Soné

Boeremeisie, Soné Jacobs, trek na die groot stad om haar eie nes te kom skop. Met 'n sjefkursus agter haar blad, winkel-ondervinding wat sy by haar familiebesigheid in Bredasdeop opgedoen het en passievol oor mooi ontwerp, maak sy mooigoed staan!

'n Bietjie Joodse bloed en kreatiwiteit van 'n ouma wat ook 'n handelswinkel gehad het, is deel van haar wenresep. Sy hou daarvan om mense te verlei met heerlike gebakte kaaskoek of 'n gesonde maar interessante slaai.

Haar persoonlike voorkeur? Gesonde, vars en geurige kos!

 



Lauren

Lauren Marshall can be described as many things; creative, dedicated, spontaneous, hard working and committed are but a few of the attributes that she will carry into her latest endeavor, the Rhubarb Room.

After two degrees and six years in the corporate world, as well as extensive traveling of the planet, the influences of a life well lived are all pooled and harnessed into a business that will surely exercise all the resources she has been honing for the last thirty years.

She loves to cook, she loves to bake, and she loves to entertain. She loves to dress herself and others, she loves fashion and style, warm interiors and good family living, there is surely no better outlet for this bundle of positive energy than this, a home-style store that encompasses everything she's loved and been good at her entire life.
