About Us

The store is a family business founded in 1919, by our grandmother Maria Lempidaki and her brother Michalis. They were followed by their children, Theodoros Zafeiropoulos, and Ioannis Lempidakis, who later left and founded the PLASTIC CRETE Industry. Later on, Theodoros  Zafeiropoulos, with the help of his wife Aikaterini, took over the store for several years. Today the business is being continued by us, their children.

Initially, the store was was engaged in selling yarns and haberdashery, while it was soon transformed into a workshop for baptism clothes and accessories. This is followed by the trade of underwear, knitting yarn, buttons.
