Faerly Wins Irish Small Online Retailer of The Year!
We are absolutely thrilled to have won 'Small Online Retailer of the Year' at the Retail Excellence Ireland Awards.
Running for the last 24 years the Retail Excellence Awards, in association with AIB Merchant Services are the largest and most prestigious awards of their kind in Ireland.
This is a really special award for us as we truly believe that small is beautiful. Our dream is to stay small (and mighty!) while growing our impact as a sustainable business. The judging process included an independent external audit of our website performance and then we gave a presentation to the judging panel for the final round.
Like ourselves, Faerly is a work in progress, and human nature being what it is we tend to focus on the problems and the gaps and the features we wish we had. So it feels really good to have experts look under the hood and decide we should win this award.
We want to say a massive thank you to our customers and everyone who supports us. It’s entirely thanks to you that we get to be shopkeepers and spend our days amongst all the gorgeous products that our makers create. You're keeping our dream (and theirs) alive. And as if that wasn't enough, you’re planting thousands of trees too! 🌳
And while we’re delighted to have won, sadly awards don’t pay the bills. 😝 Times are tough for everyone right now and understandably we’re all cutting back. So if you can see your way to send some of your Christmas shopping our way we’d really appreciate it!
