Last night, the newly opened Novikov in Mayfair, played host to the Telegraph Magazine's The Best Small Shops in Britain awards, which focuses on finding the best independent shops across the UK which give high streets their special identity.
Hosted by Michele Lavery, editor of the Telegraph Magazine, and retail expert columnist Mary Portas, thousands of consumers voted for their favourite local shops in nine categories.
Huge congratulations go to the team at Kidsen, who were awarded the coveted Best Independent Children’s Shop Award by a panel of judges!
After launching three years ago, the Kensal Rise store sells children’s clothes and shoes, interiors, toys and gifts, quite rightly described by The Telegraph as an ‘oasis of Scandinavian cool’!
“Being an independent retailer can be a roller coaster of emotions, but today I feel like all the hard work has been more than worth it. I am so grateful to all the people I've met who have supported us and helped our shop grow and to The Telegraph for showcasing all us Independents. Our mission is to continue to offer specialist service and advice and to keep our high street interesting by finding innovative and exciting products and generally make it a great local shopping destination. Long live the high street!"
Corina Papadopoulou, Founder, Kidsen.
We can't wait to read Corina's next guest blog for Bubble and Speak on the back of such a prestigious win! Congratulations again team!
