Showcase Winner – The Little Cufflink Shop

Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to Freddie Pig. He’s been more than supportive of the business ever since we started in December 2012. Being a new business, I assumed it would take us about 6 months to start creating a good following on our social media sites, but with the help of Freddie Pig and countless others, we were gaining customers and recommendations by the end of January. I, Findlay Downing, started The Little...
