Bruce has been in the fabric game all his working life (over 40 years)! He started his career in retail back in the day when everyone made their clothes rather than buy them... (yes he is that old!)
Bruce has extensive trade knowledge with exceptionally strong buying relationships here in New Zealand and abroad. This allows him to source high quality product at the very best price. He believes everyone should be able to tap into the best bargain on the market whilst purchasing the best quality fabric that is available.

Rachael joined the Backstreet Bargains team in 2010 primarily focussing on the financial management area of the business. She has become more involved in advertising and is our contact for questions regarding our website administration.
Rachael has developed a fuller understanding of the use of fabric in design and enjoys working with clients to make sure they look at colour and making it work with their complexion.
Sheryl has managed the warehouse side of the business operation at Backstreet Bargains since 2010. Prior to this she was “Girl Friday” for the business, assisting where needed.
