About us


Founded in 2011 Custard and Crumble is a luxury online boutique offering stylish, unique and inspiring nursery furniture and accessories.  Having worked in fashion retail for over 8 years for some key UK high street brands, in July 2010 my husband and I had our first baby boy.  Like many new mums the time at home allowed me to reflect and think about how to achieve that perfect work life balance.  I had always thought about working for myself but was never brave enough to leave my job and take the risk, but now I was fortunate enough to use this natural break in my career to take the plunge.

So here I am today with my Company ‘Custard and Crumble’ and a baby girl as well.  I have our friend Oli to thank for the name, but apart from that I can promise you that I have handpicked all of the nursery furniture and accessories on this site and have only chosen those, which, I would be happy to have in Jack or Lilly’s nursery.  All of the products have been handpicked for their individuality and cannot easily be found on the High Street.  With the growth in baby showers in the UK I also decided to offer customers the convenience of using a gift list service.  Finally, our unique recycling service was created with those less fortunate than us in mind.  With this I hope other children will be able to benefit from the products our children have enjoyed.

I hope you like what you see and enjoy shopping with us,

Love Rachel x
