2021 Year in Review is a roundup of our most popular shops, posts and new features. A year that continued to be challenging for independent shops and small business due to travel interruptions and supply chain issues. The world of retail continues to evolve, with more purchases than ever been made online. Yet we still believe in championing the world of independent shops, and we believe that now, more than ever, it is vital that we support small shops so as many as possible thrive. None of us want to see more boarded-up and empty shopfronts. Small business are the backbone of our communities. They add integrity and vitality to our villages, towns and cities. So please support independent stores, shopping and sharing your local small businesses – whether IRL or online.
This year we introduced The Shopkeepers Candles, that take you on an olfactory journey of our favorite shops. Our Spotify Playlists share the music played in some of our favorite coffee, plant and bookshops. We are excited to be 200K+ strong on Instagram. We added to our Instagram Guides and shared 2021 Best Shops & Favourite Online Shops lists.
