2021 has played a huge part in the make-or-break future of so many small businesses. Over the last few years, it has been both heart-breaking and heart-warming to see brands we have known and loved to succeed – or sadly shut. However, that said, there have been some amazing new ventures launched during lockdown that have boomed which is what SL Guide Love to see.
