It’s been a stellar 2022 for Miss Milly as the British brand chalked up nominations for The Gift of the Year Awards organised by the Giftware Association and the FSB [Federation of Small Businesses] Celebrating Small Business Awards.
And now the wholesaler of colourful jewellery and scarves has scored a hat-trick of achievements by reaching the finals of the Boutique Star Awards, with nominations in the Best British Brand and Accessories/Footwear Brand of the Year categories.
Managing director Sarah Watmore said: “We have done so much this year as we celebrate 10 years in business. As well as being a finalist in a couple of awards, we have worked on our sustainability and grown sales significantly since summer 2021. And now we’re a finalist again in industry awards, with our fingers crossed for a successful outcome.”
She added: “It was incredibly tough during the lockdowns, but it gave us time to develop the brand and our customer relationships. And since coming out of it, it’s not got much easier with the cost-of-living crisis, continued Covid issues affecting supply, and now a catastrophic tumble for the pound. So any recognition is hugely appreciated – and we’ll definitely be enjoying our night out!”
