Shop owner  Josie Rossington said: ” We were amongst 5 other finalists in their area category, so I was totally stunned when it was announced that I had won.

“To be recognised by the gift industry itself is such a boost for all the hard work that myself and the rest of ‘Team Follie’ have put in and it’s definitely going to inspire and motivate us for the future.

“Later this year Follie will be marking its 10th anniversary and will be planning some celebrations around the event, so this award is already the icing on the celebratory cake.”
