Miss Milly wins Small Business of the Week Award

British jewellery and scarf wholesaler, Miss Milly, has been named as his Small Business of the Week by Nick Brown, the business expert on Jeremy Vine’s Radio 2 show.

“What a fantastic start to the week,” smiled Sarah Watmore, the owner of Miss Milly. “This year just gets better and better for us; sales are growing phenomenally and the brand is going from strength to strength. National recognition from a renowned business guru is definitely something to be proud of and anything that boosts the profile of the contribution that small businesses make to the economy is valuable.”

At the start of 2014, there were a record 5.16 million small businesses contributing £1.2 trillion to the economy, equivalent to 33% of private sector turnover. Add in a further 31,000 medium sized businesses and the turnover jumps to £1.6 trillion. And wholesale and retail trade accounts for 35% of this SME turnover.

“The key to our success is building a strong brand that offers excellent value, mass appeal products that are different to those of our competitors. We operate in a very competitive market and in order to stand out, gain and keep our customers, we work incredibly hard on product design and marketing,” Sarah continues. “Having our efforts recognised by Nick Brown feels fantastic.”

As well as a stunning and varied range of costume jewellery and scarves, Miss Milly offers branded stands and packaging to create attractive retail displays. With a low £50 minimum order and no minimum order quantities, it’s definitely worth a look. Register online at to access trade prices or call the company on 01905 622509 for further information.
