The story of Drake Apothecary does not have a particularly glamorous beginning I’m afraid.
The business was started with next to no money and even less business experience at my kitchen table with a baby on my hip. Not the stuff of fairytales most might say and I would have to agree. This is not a fairytale at all you see but that does not make it any less magic.
This is a story of the making of somethings out of nothings, the building of a dream, a promise made to a river, a mother’s love, a shot in the dark, the words of a flower and a lady made out of stars. No this is not a fairytale. This is the story of my life.
