Closet & Botts is a partnership between two old school friends, Chloe Shearing and Harriet Maxwell. Chloe originally worked in a French patisserie in Brighton, whilst Harriet was a display artist for Anthropologie in London. They share an eye for well-made, beautiful objects, and over the years have spent many a cold morning hunting around markets and car boot sales, dreaming of opening their own shop. After a particularly inspiring trip to Paris, they decided to take the plunge. They left their jobs on the same day, bought a van (The Pearly Queen), and spent the next eighteen months learning their trade, scouring the flea markets of Europe, bringing home overlooked treasures to sell in pop-up shops and vintage fairs.
