DRAGONS’ Den star Theo Paphitis has given an Oundle craft business the seal of approval on social networking site Twitter.

The well-known businessman chose The Emporium Oundle as part of his Small Business Sunday initiative which uses the hashtag #sbs (Small Business Sunday).

Theo invites small businesses across Twitter to contact him and then handpicks six winners each week, retweeting them to his 152,000 followers.

Rebecca Holder (25), owner of The Emporium Oundle – an online business which sells quality, ethically sourced handmade craft
was delighted when the business guru picked her business from among hundreds of entries and then announced the news to his worldwide Twitter audience.

“This is fantastic news for us. To be recommended by Theo is a real joy and we will be working very hard to live up to this honour,” said Rebecca.

She added: “I have worked really hard to create a professional, ethical business selling the very highest quality craft. It’s great to know that Theo was as impressed by our gorgeous,
hand-picked range of British crafts as we are. It’s a credit to the talent and creativity of our UK artisans who feature on
and I have no doubt this will spur us on to go from strength to strength.”
