All Our Own Crafts pop-up shop was nominated this year for an award! I was so proud that a shop we've been running for only 18 months was up for an award. What's the award? It's the "A Place To Be Proud Of" awards, which is held every year by Destination Basingstoke.
Many of us attended the evening, held at the Haymarket Theatre in Basingstoke, to show our support for the shop at the ceremony.
We received 2 nominations: One in the "Arts and Entertainment" category and the other in the "Community" category. To our delight, we were shortlisted to become top 3 finalists in the Arts and Entertainment category, which was a tremendous accolade for our relatively new venture. We didn't win the award, but being a finalist was something to be truly proud of.
Here's a photo of some of our gang posing with our finalist's award:
