BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Sammy Duder Ltd was founded in 2004 by the current owner and specialises in a baby footprint and handprint service from its shop on a boutique shopping street in Battersea. The location of the business attracts a wealthy clientele including celebrity clients and their families, generally from the SW London area, although there are a handful of international clients who visit annually. Levels of repeat business are high - once a first visit is made, every subsequent child birth is marked by a visit, the experience likened to being as regular as the 6 week check up at the doctors with a newborn!

Typical products include applying prints to pottery items, in clay as imprints, in silver and bronze as casts and silver fingerprint jewellery. There is great potential to develop the business further, including adding new products such as plaster moulds of feet, greater involvement with local schools and nurseries, developing the website in terms of online sales, particularly the silver fingerprint jewellery and also developing other craft avenues such as decoupage and ‘make and take’ items.

The business is being sold with all the required equipment including 2 large pottery & clay kilns with controllers and kiln furniture, a small silver kiln and all tools and shop fittings. The vendor works in the business Tuesday to Thursday 10am to 3pm overseeing the running of the shop, the kiln and silver work and the business marketing. In addition the business employs 2 staff, who would be keen to remain.

Sammy Duder Ltd is financially robust, with revenues typically in the range of £140k to £160k delivering earnings before owner drawings of £40k to £50k. The vendor is struggling to juggle 3 young children with the continued development of the business and hence it is being marketed for sale. The guide price for 100% of the shares is £119,000.
Please do not
