'We’re absolutely delighted with the response,’ says Angela Linforth, editor of Homes & Antiques. ‘The awards were set up to raise awareness of and boost interest in antiques and antiques shops among a wider audience who might otherwise overlook them and it certainly looks as if they’ve done just that. Almost all of the shops on the original shortlists have received some press coverage and our winners are obviously much-loved and valued by their customers and communities. Hopefully this accolade will encourage even more people to visit them and to see just what it is that makes them so special.'
Look out for a feature on the winners in the July issue, out on 6th June.
