Red Propeller's Sallyann!
Sarah (RPG Director) and Sallyann have been firm friends for years. This dynamic duo are a driving force behind Red Propeller Gallery and have a zealous and bubbly rapport that quickly brightens any room...
"We are collaborators and conjurors of creative ideas and events!"
Sallyann is fuelled by styling, designing and creating spaces. She has a wealth of experience in boutique and offbeat retail; being the mastermind behind two unique emporiums here in Kingsbridge - Pig Finca (originally launched back in 1993) and Cherry Cherry (2003).
"Both individually styled and designed offering the customer something different to the normal shopping experience."
The gorgeous Sallyann plays a crucial part in the vibrant story of Red Propeller Gallery!
"I became involved with Red Propeller just over a year ago when I came up with the concept of a pop up £5 shop ‘in a cupboard’, full of vintage curiosities and trinkets to make you smile.
I launched the original 'Lollipop Up’ cupboard in Red Propeller last summer, which has now developed into the ‘Salon De Swag, a permanent retail wonderland in the back room of the gallery.
I am passionate about the ocean (a not-so secret mermaid) and love trawling the shores, so came up with the idea to make lamps with beach-combed fishing buoys. Using washed up buoys, worn and weathered by the ocean each one uniquely numbered; I then add my own flavours with handmade sea-dog shades and old marine charts."

As an artist and abit of a jet-setter Sallyann is constantly seeking inspiration from both the environment and her travels (most recent trips including Panama and Italy). Whether it's jewellery from Greece or genuine vintage trinkets, Sallyann has an eye for beautiful things!
