THE Little Welsh Dresser, a Welsh gift shop based in Llandeilo has been named as one of 100 trail-blazing small businesses being celebrated on Small Business Saturday which takes place on December 7.

This year's Small Biz 100 features a range of unique independent businesses each contributing to their communities and offering something different, including the The Little Welsh Dresser.

Founded in 2014 by Benedict Vaughan-Morris, the Rhosmaen Street shop has a beautiful and unique selection of Welsh language gifts, and also has an extensive selection of Chalk Paint decorative paint by Annie Sloan, which is perfect for upcyling or giving your furniture a new lease of life.

The Little Welsh Dresser joins hundreds of previous Small Biz 100 businesses, which have been announced by the campaign since its UK launch in 2013.

Benedict said: "We are celebrating the shops fifth birthday this year, although we're the fourth generation of our family to run a shop at these premises, dating back to 1905.

"This recognition as one of the UK's Small Biz 100 is just the icing on the cake.

"Llandeilo is the perfect little town to do your Christmas shopping and support small businesses at the same time."

Now in its seventh year, Small Business Saturday is the UK's most successful small business campaign, which last year saw an estimated £812 million spent in small businesses across the UK on the day, according to research commissioned by founder and principal supporter American Express.

Michelle Ovens, Director of Small Business Saturday, said: “ Small Business Saturday’s increasing popularity means it was harder than ever to choose just 100 of this country’s incredible 5.8 million small businesses to showcase, but we believe those we have chosen are true representatives of the diverse, creative and inspiring heroes at the heart of our communities.”
