About Rabbit Retail

Hi fellow bunny lover. My name is Anna, I am the founder and CRL (Crazy Rabbit Lady) at Rabbit Retail. I have 5 house buns that are my little babies! You learn more about the team here,

Rabbit Retail is my non-rabbit baby, a passion project and now full time job. I started work on Rabbit Retail in April 2020 after I was furloughed, and in the August we launched the online shop. In April 2021 we were able to open a little shop on the Aylesbury High Street. In February 2024 we have now opened our Shop and Harehouse to further expand! 

Why Rabbit Retail though? I started this shop for a few reasons.

First, to improve the selection of rabbit approved products available for bunny lovers. Often in larger pet shops bunnies are referred to as a "small animal" and grouped with rats, hamsters and guinea pigs. Rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents, and have complex needs. Many food items that are safe for other small animals are not okay for bunnies, such as corn, honey or seeds. I have spent so much time reading labels and researching to find food, treats and toys that are suitable for my fur babies; I thought I should put this knowledge to good use. You can shop at Rabbit Retail with confidence knowing that all the products sold here for rabbits are rabbit safe.

Secondly, I wanted a place that bunny lovers could go to buy bunny related items. I joined a facebook group where people post the latest bunny themed items they've found. Thats when I thought, wouldn't it be so cool if there was a one stop shop for all these kinds of products! It has been too much fun finding the cutest bunny themed gifts, and chatting to some of the most talented people.

One of my friends was amazed that at a busy games expo at the NEC, I could spot a bunny t-shirt from a couple of stands away. It is with this keen eye for a rabbit related item that I've grown the Bun of a Kind range; a selection of one off, pre-loved or rare bunny items. 

Lastly, I am a disabled person with Ehlers Danlos and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I was diagnosed CFS just a month after completing my degree. My life changed dramatically, I spent two years being unable to do much of anything. But every day my little rabbits Oreo and Macaroon kept me company; we would have afternoon nap time together, my boyfriend says its rather funny walking in the lounge to find us all fast asleep. My bunnies helped me so much, so I wanted to do something for them, and other bunnies.

Over the past couple years my Chronic Fatigue has improved and I am learning all the ways Ehlers Danlos affects me and how best to manage it. Having my own business means I can look after my health, take a nap (or two) when I need and gives me the chance to work on something meaningful to me and my rabbits. Its true what they say, find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life.

I hope you enjoy shopping at Rabbit Retail, this really is a dream come true - thank you,

Have a hoppy day,
