Our Team


Rachael joined the Backstreet Bargains team in 2010 primarily focussing on the financial management area of the business. She works at all levels of the day to day functions of the business, as well as managing staff, payroll, accounts and is part of the buying team.  She is our primary contact when dealing with key account holders.

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 make it work with their complexion.


Ngaire has been working at Backstreet Bargains since 2009. She works at all levels of the day to day functions of the business, as well as website listing design, photography, and is part of the buying team.  She also leads a small team who run the marketing and advertising area of the business - ensuring we are sharing relevant and up to date fabric information with all our fabric lovers out there!

Ngaire has a keen creative mind with a flair for assisting our clients in reaching their desired fabric outcomes.


We are very fortunate to have a great team who are:

Katy, Lisa, Sarah, Ang & Rosa

Between them they will offer you customer service that is second to none.  Their accumulated industry knowledge means they can help you find a solution to almost all of your queries, and you will leave having had a great Backstreet Bargains experience!


Bruce is the owner of the business.  You may see him around the office from time to time, but these days he is actively pursuing semi-retirement after a life-long career in the fabric industry.  We still lean on his industry expertise now and then - but that's only if he answers his phone!
