Period Features is a small company, and we plan to keep it that way!
Staying small allows us to offer the friendly, personal service for which we have become known. We don’t want our customers to feel like just another number – we carefully track every order from the point it is received until the moment of dispatch, and provide excellent communication along the way. This means you will always know when your order has been received, when it has been dispatched and when you can expect it.
Internet companies often seem very impersonal, so we thought it would be nice if you could see who you were dealing with:
Suzy Dymock is the enthusiastic, creative owner of Period Features, together with her husband Jonathan. Before taking over the business, she gained a degree in sculpture and worked as a prop-maker for some time. Suzy then worked as a buyer for a local department store and was an art teacher in various schools in Derbyshire and Staffordshire. She and Jonathan live in an old farmhouse which they have lovingly restored, located in an idyllic Peak District village with a very scenic trip to work! They also have two children, two dogs, three savage cats and six chickens (at the last count).
Jonathan Dymock is the co-owner of Period Features, together with his wife Suzy. Previously, he spent 15 years working in logistics (so if your parcel doesn't turn up, he's the man you need to speak to!). He enjoys life in the Peak District and is a very keen angler, with an interest in dry-stone walling and organic farming. Period Features is the first business that he and Suzy have owned and they are very much enjoying this new challenge.
Heather has a degree in Jewellery & Silversmithing and worked and exhibited as a designer maker before becoming a teacher of Art & Design. A break from teaching and a move to lovely Leek brought her to Period Features. She can often be seen photographing lovely things or the window displays, as she keeps you all up to date with our current products and goings on via the wonders of the internet! She loves the outdoors and with her two very active boys (3 if you include her husband) spends most of her spare time off in their caravan hunting down family adventures.
