All in the family

Congratulations to The Old Bag Company, a Devon-based business selling handmade bags, which won the regional heats in the Barclays Local Business “Family Affair” competition. It receives £1,500 and a year of free business advice from Barclays presented by Dragon's Den and Reggae Reggae Sauce entrepreneur Levi Roots.

The press release said the judges were impressed by how working as a family--15-year-old Will for instance, is credited on the website as head of IT--The Old Bag Company achieved a 60-percent sales increase on the previous year and introduced a steady stream of new designs to its range of handbags, purses, pouches and baby changing mats.

Personally, I love the name of its enewsletter, The Old Bag Fan Club, I’ve already put my name down.—MT
