Guardian Small Business Award: Home Innovation

Share This Post

This is a really exciting time for us at The Bear and Miss Rabbit!  We entered the Guardian Small Business Showcase 2104 in November 2014.

Home Innovation

There are a number of categories to enter, but as The Bear and Miss Rabbit; established in July 2012; continues to be a home run business, I entered the Home Innovation category.

I submitted our entry, which was subsequently published on The Guardian website at the end of November. This in itself is exciting for a small, independent family ran business.

However……we then received a call! We have been shortlisted as one of the 3 businesses within the Home Innovation Category! Amazing News!

I could not believe it! What a great end to the year, and what a great start to 2015 as we are featured as a write up both in The Guardian newspaper and on their website (7th January 2015)!



What happens next? Well, we are off for a peak at the other businesses shortlisted ;) But, there is an award ceremony later in the spring in London to look forward to. Watch this space for further details!

A big thank you to Frances Louise Photography in Street, Somerset for our photos. I had a lot of fun having these done.

The Bear and Miss Rabbit is an online traditional toy shop based in Street, Somerset with an emphasis on toys that encourage imaginative play.

Toys, gifts and arts and crafts that everyone will love.
