Cathy Frost’s Ipswich unique card and gift shop Love One has been selected as a regional finalist, in the Greats - the Gift Retailer Awards 2018.

Love One, in St Peter’s Street, is a beacon among the independent traders in Ipswich, with Cathy celebrating her 10th anniversary in business last year.

Last year, too, Love One was a finalist in the RETAS 2017 - the UK greeting card retailer awards.

Cathy is a champion for Ipswich as a retail destination, and for the business community in The Saints area in particular.
