Hello, I'm Ana E.

Hello! I am the founder of The Octopus Club. I am Brazilian and have been living in London for 15+ years. I became mother to Max end of 2018 and have been busy with the challenges of motherhood since. I love repurposing items and giving products a longer shelf life. Also love to give away things I don't need anymore to people who might need them. If you would like to know a bit more, scroll down the page to My Story. Best wishes, Ana

It was my first experience using the octopus club and definitely won’t be my last! Thanks Ana!

    Ana was wonderfully helpful throughout my purchase. I initially contacted Ana to request whether the item could be held for me whilst I trialled the carrier via a sling library. Ana was more than happy to assist and then answered umpteen questions from me before I committed to purchase after I had trialled the carrier! The carrier arrived really quickly and was beautifully wrapped and accompanied by a handwritten note, making the experience of buying second hand feel so special. The carrier itself is great and in wonderful condition. Thanks Ana!
