My Moonfruit Experience - Goose Home & Garden

Here at Moonfruit we are very community focused and we like to learn about our users and their experiences with us. We decided to share what we discovered about Paul and Sarah Kingston, owners of Goose Home and Garden, a beautiful vintage homeware site which recently won our Site of the Week competition.

The couple have been running their business from their shop unit and through various fairs in the south of England for over 20 years. However, they recently decided to embrace technology and the 21st century and set up an online store in order to reach customers from further afield. They began building their website 6 months ago, and it took them 2 months to complete it, working around their busy early morning hunts through antique fairs in England and France.

The pair decided on Moonfruit after looking at various do-it-yourself website builders as they believed that Moonfruit gave the most flexible options. They had a clear idea of how they wanted the design of the site to end up, i.e. a vintage style which reflected the look of their products. Paul was the primary designer and liked how Moonfruit allowed the user to build their own pages and also mix them with the present template pages. The couple confirm that the whole design process was very straightforward and enjoyable, finding the editing tools easy to use. They did encounter the odd frustrating moments along the way too, which they openly admit were down to their limited computer knowledge, but the response from friends and family has made all their effort worthwhile. Everyone has been extremely positive, comments Sarah, mentioning that some were shocked when the couple revealed that they had built and designed it themselves, simply because of how professional it looked.

The couple affirm that they have really enjoyed their design experience and now feel like they are part of the Moonfruit community that has been established over the years. The duo revealed how the Support page's Forum was especially useful in helping to create their site, reading what other users have said to find answers to their questions and they also mention that the interaction on the social media pages has been quick and friendly.

So, what do the pair think of us overall? Paul and Sarah said that they would happily recommend Moonfruit to anyone thinking of building their own site, which is very high praise indeed!
