Introducing… Diva’s & Dudes Children’s Boutique in Wick

I’ve only just looked on a map to see where Wick is (geography was never my strong point!), and was surprised to discover it’s way up almost at the top of Scotland! It’s certainly one of our most northerly stockists in the UK! So, I’m guessing shops selling nursery & children’s items are probably quite hard to come by all the way up there, so if you live in the North of Scotland, please pay them a visit & check out their fab window displays! Please read on to find out a little more about Alana and Diva’s & Dudes Children’s Boutique…









What made you decide to open your shop?

I have 4 boys and have always struggled to find nice clothing for them especially in the North Of Scotland so decided to take the plunge and fill a gap in the market by opening my own boutique.

What do you like to do if you ever get a chance to relax? Go to the cinema - Favourite Film – Titanic (Me too! A rare treat though!)

If money was no object, what would be the one thing you would do? Travel the world
