High Street Shop of the Year
It’s fair to say 2020 has been a challenging year for most businesses, so finding out we’d been nominated for a Holly & Co Award felt like ending the year with a great big hug.
We were nominated for amongst some of our favourite independent stores including Berylune, Pencil Me In and Sanchos who went on to be very worthy category winners.
Holly & Co is the brainchild of Holly Tucker, one of the founder’s of Not on the High Street which is where our online story begin in 2014. I’m so grateful to marketplaces like those for helping us in those early days, back then having our own Bricks and Mortar store felt like a pipe dream, I would never have believed that 6 years on we’d be where we are.
What made it even more special is that each of the shortlisted businesses were voted for by you, we’re well aware that we’d be nothing without our customers - both those who visit us in store and those who support from afar.
I’ve never much been one for awards, I’ve never applied for any (quite probable fear of failure) and I’ve always valued feedback from real customers and jewellery lovers over a judging panel of experts. That said, this one gave us an excuse to stop, sit back and admire what we’ve achieved.
We just wanted to say another thank you for your continued support, and for letting us end a challenging year on a high.
