Help An Independent Shaftesbury Shop Win A Prestigious Award

A Shaftesbury shop has been nominated for a national retail prize in the Independent Awards.

Amalia Pothecary started the Botanical Candle Company with her partner James Osborn in 2014, making and selling soy wax candles from their Shaftesbury home.

The couple opened a shop at The Commons in summer 2018. The business has expanded to a second workspace unit at Toby’s Court and currently employs seventeen people.

You can vote here until 3rd December. The public vote will influence the selection of the finalists for this award.
