Our Story

Nia Heather – an avid music lover , talented musician and  father opened Raro Records. A place were all muso’s would frequent to listen , play and purchase music and instruments. The store was always a buzz. Local music blasting on the speakers, Papa Nia occasionally on a ukulele or singing. You could feel the passion for our culture before you walked in to the store. 

Yvonne Heather, a new mum quickly realised there was a need for baby goods on the island.  Her passion for providing quality products at a reasonable price saw her open the doors to her first retail store .

Their family grew and so did their love for providing for our people . They combined their businesses and VONNIAS was born – a combination of Nia and Yvonne. The heart of not only their family but their company.
