A little bit about us


I'm Nicola. I had the idea to set up Harrabellas way back in 2014 after a family holiday in Spain where I saw a local Spanish man making personalised caps on a little stall near the beach. After purchasing one for my grandson, I realised that there aren't many places near my hometown of St Helens that sell personalised items. 

Once home I looked into embroidery machines and my first thought was "Oh my word, this is confusing!" After many hours of research I finally found the machine I wanted. 

Next came thinking of a name for my little business. This took some time! After lots of suggestions and help from friends and family, we came up with Harrabellas which is a mixture of two very special names - Harry and Isabella.

In 2011 our first grandaughter Isabella was stillborn. As a family we where truly devastated but together we got through this difficult time and continued to keep her name alive by setting up a charity, Isabella Rose Foundation, to help other families who experience the loss of a child. 

In 2012 along came our first grandson Harry! He has just started school and brings so much happiness into our lives. 

So because of these two very special little people, Harrabellas was born!

I have been creating and selling various items for the past 2 years and can't wait to see what the future holds for Harrabellas. 

So sit back, relax and have a browse through our products and remember, if there is something that you want but cannot see on the site, please do get in touch with me and I will do my very best to create something that you will love. 

Thank you,
