We have made the Best Small Shops competition 2020 shortlist! 
Out of the thousands of entrants nationwide this year, only 30 shops have been shortlisted to be in for a chance to be named the Best Small Shop of 2020, a Runner Up or the Most Innovative Business During COVID-19. 
We are super excited as we have been shortlisted for not 1 but 2 awards. 
The Best Small Shops competition celebrates, not only the commitment and creativity of entrepreneurial independent retailers on the UK's High Streets but also, the central role independent retailers play in their local communities. 
The retail landscape is constantly evolving, giving independent retailers challenges and opportunities to thrive in a unique way, offering customers specialist knowledge, products and customer service. The Best Small Shops competition gives us the chance to celebrate this unique industry and show consumers what makes these small shops just so special. 
The Best Small Shops competition is in association with Maybe and https://www.indieretail.uk. 
Independent retailers are the lifeblood of UK high streets, offering specialist products and services, knowledge and passion for their community. 
Shopping at an independent retailer supports local traders and in turn, the local economy, enabling local businesses to prosper and grow. 
DID YOU KNOW? For every £1 spent with a local, independent business, between 50p-70p circulates back into that local economy. Shopping online or in corporate, out of town retailers only generates around 5p back into the local community. 
WE WOULD LOVE YOUR HELP….. expose us further by using any social media channel you prefer and tagging us here at Ruby and the Angel and tag Indie Retail UK and use the #BestSmallShops. Just say a little something about us, shopping in Suffolk or the wonderful village of Debenham. The more we shout about this the more our shop and our community thrives.

COMING SOON....Solid Cologne UK (SCUK) 
Solid Cologne UK was launched in mid 2016. Solid cologne is a solid wax based cologne/aftershave for men. In contrast with the traditional liquid bottle cologne we introduced a natural wax and skin friendly cologne which is applied directly on to the skin. 
The original idea was based on those who travelled often and had a problem of spilling the liquid colognes or often were not allowed to take them on board with their hand luggage. SCUK felt a solution was needed for this. After much trial and error they finally came up with Solid Cologne UK. Although this cool concept was very popular amongst the ancient Egyptians, they decided to re-introduce the concept with our own twist. 
We will be stocking 5 colognes and the 3 women’s scents. These colognes have the highest quality of natural ingredients including Beeswax, Shea butter & Jojoba oil. which all support and protect the skin. 
Benefits: To highlight, these highly concentrated wax fragrances are portable, natural and moisturizing. Easy to apply and handy too. Perfect for carrying in your pocket or gym bag and you can travel on aircraft with this range. Discreetly packaged, application is fast and easy. Whip it out in the office, on the bus or in a crowded club/bar. 
The scents are by no means overbearing, they are subtle but refreshing which are identified within close proximity. The blend of various notes within our solid colognes tend to stay on the skin which allows the fragrance to evolve throughout the day while interacting with your body temperature. 
Each of the small pocket sized sliding tins have a certain aura about them, which will leave you feeling like a true gent! 
Not yet convinced ….. read on! 
“With many different colognes to choose from, you can certainly adapt (or even mix and match) these fragrances to your mood thus channelling your inner masculinity, without them being too overpowering. 
The packaging comes in a sleek, pocket-sized sliding black 18ml tin, perfect no matter how small your luggage is. 
The products are not tested on animals and are even handmade in London. They are easy to apply, making them ideal for those times when you are on the go. 
The fragrances are long-lasting, as well as rather timeless and elegant. There is something rather special about carrying around one of these tins, which allows you to dab a bit here and there in order to freshen up anywhere. We heartily recommend these solid colognes they are not just reserved for us boys – the girls seem to love them too! All the colognes can be bought individually or in packs” – Amazing PR London

About bollox underwear 
A quality brand of men’s boxer shorts supporting men’s cancer charities. bollox first product was the high quality black and white boxers for you to wear at every occasion. Since then they have launched many new colours. These boxers show a lot about you – you know style, you know a good brand, and you LOOK AFTER YOURSELF. By buying a pair of these boxer shorts you are helping to raise money and awareness of men’s health.

The Idea 
“The bollox idea had been rattling around for 4 years or so, then after cycling the London to Brighton for the ‘British Heart Foundation’ in 2012 and raising £500 I got a real buzz out of raising money for a charity. 
So that was it – I loved the name and it fits so well with cancers that hits plenty of guys – Testicular, Prostate and Penile. The rest seemed quite a natural thing to do… it’s had to be a product that every guy would love to wear, and raised money for a cause that affects us guys. So with the help of my wife and family the bollox concept started…. from the sketchy drawings and messy scribbles, to where we they are at the moment, the aim of the brand is to not only be recognised as a Charity raising brand but also be a ‘must have’ item, a product which you want to show off to your friends, family and strangers in the street.” 
– Daren Elsley, Founder 
bollox boxers are available in store when we re open on Tuesdya 16th June and will be online soon. Remember Fathers day and help save lives.
