  • Fiona Rae Goldsmith and Enameller

    Muddy says: Goldsmith and enameller Fiona Rae won Best Jewellery Store in the Muddy Awards 2018. It's hardly surprising. She holds a Royal Warrant, she's a talented and fascinating person, and each piece of jewellery tells an interesting story.

  • number twenty, Berkhamsted

    Muddy says: number twenty won Best Gift Shop in the 2018 Muddy Awards. Step inside and you'll see why it deserved to win!

  • Taylor Benfield Candles

    Muddy says: Think you know candles? Think again. Taylor Benfield is a brand new boutique candle company based in St Albans. I'm not waxing lyrical, but it's quite something to be able to enjoy armchair travel as you are transported around the world, all your senses a-flicker, with Ligurian citrus, Mallorcan orange blossom and Cephalonian wild flowers. Evocative, luxurious and delicious!

    Alexandra Wood Bespoke

    Muddy says: to experience Savile Row in Bishop's Stortford is a very special and delightful thing. In addition to bespoke tailoring, you will also find made-to-measure suits, wedding hire wear and accessories. Put Alexandra Wood in your own little black book and make a date to visit. No appointment necessary!

  • Staffy B

    Muddy says: this vibrant and always changing lifestyle store in Baldock is great for gifts and vinyl, but it's also a destination for interior design.

  • Urban Flower Farmer

    Muddy says: Emma's story is inspiring: she worked in retail as a fashion buyer, became a florist, then read a book called The 50 Mile Bouquet which completely changed her approach to floristry. She now grows all her own blooms on her flower farm in Barnet. Her business is organic, sustainable and seasonal, and her floral design is stunning and constantly evolving.

  • Halia Rose

    Muddy says: this stylish, colourful jewellery is also chewable! It has to be seen - and worn - to be believed.

  • Blackfish swimwear

    Muddy says: we reviewed Blackfish swimwear and gave the tankini and shorts a fins up. Blackfish swimwear has been designed to give a second skin flattering fit. It works!

  • Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery

    Muddy says: Bespoke means bespoke for Harriet Kelsall who continues to win awards for her jewellery design and ethical business practices.

  • David’s Bookshop & David’s Music

    Established in 1963, David’s Bookshop and Music is a shop like no other.

  • What Sarah Did…

    What Sarah Did is a lifestyle store that for me epitomises all that is great about Hitchin. Quirky, individual, and hugely supportive of other independent retailers and businesses.
