What is it?

aboutQ IS FOR QUIRKY is quite simply a breath of fresh air to Devon, Cornwall and the South West. An amazing emporium of wearable fashion which is focussed on individuality, expressiveness, colour, texture and design. We believe in making quirky, unusual clothing both affordable and accessible – it’s about having fun, having confidence and having your own style. With lagenlook clothing (german term – loose and layering) there is no age limit – and we wholeheartedly believe that our eclectic mix of style separates and accessories is for anyone who enjoys fashion and likes to express their creative spirit.

It is our desire to bring this style opportunity to you, not only with affordable prices, but also with the kind of friendly and professional service that would build lasting customer relationships. We have the passion and the know-how to style all shapes and sizes and want to create a welcoming world of ideas and inspiration. We always cater for larger size women within our clothing ranges, but more recently, we have also been adding stock for more petite ladies who have been expressing a desire to join in with the idea of Italian and lagenlook styling. We listen to our customers and we always go the extra mile to accommodate needs and desires. We currently stock clothing, handbags, statement jewellery, hats, scarves, gloves and other gift accessories. We welcome cash or card payments.

Who's Behind It?

JD 109Q IS FOR QUIRKY is owned and run by Juliet – a self-confessed quirky clothesaholic – who moved to Cornwall from the north in 2014 with her family and 3 young boys. Juliet, a singer by profession, has spent years designing and putting together costumes for stage whilst also sourcing and acquiring her own unique clothing collection. This passion and inspiration saw the beginning of her own clothing brand “Q is for Quirky” built with her friend and seamstress Carol Duncan from Denby Dale near Hudderfield. This acorn blossomed and became the inspirational emporium boutiques that we see today. Still very new, still developing but very sure-footed in their style and design. Juliet has a degree in Communication, and as such, it has been crucially important for her to build a strong team of great people to share in the operation of the business. Alongside Juliet are a small and amazing team of creative, people-loving, extrovert, kind-hearted women with a passion for fashion. We all believe in great customer service and that shopping is as much about the experience as it is about what you purchase. This is certainly not the high street, but an all-inclusive friendly business that aims to bring a personal touch to all customer relations.
