Welcome to Shop Small Magazine 

 

 

For more inspiration on where to shop small we have created our very own 'Shop Small Magazine' in partnership with Courier, a leading voice in the sector and champion of small businesses.  For us, it was a natural collaboration due to our shared passion for backing small business; helping consumers to discover them and shining a light on the people behind them.


We’ve selected some of our favourite articles from the magazine, including editorial content from the Courier team about insightful shopping trends, the up and coming small businesses to watch out for, as well as a handy guide of the shops and places to visit near you. We hope you enjoy!
