A bespoke photo framing business from Maidenhead has been selected to be featured in promotions for the UK's first dedicated day to small businesses on December 7.
Hugo's Workshop, set up by Rebecca De Jager, 31, of Cox Green, in June is among 100 small businesses featured.
Mrs De Jager creates solid oak photo frames and allows customers see a virtual image of their product then make final adjustments before they buy.
The company conducts most of their sales online and via Facebook.
The campaign, set up in America in 2010 by American Express, is designed to highlight small business success and encourage people to 'shop local'.
It is supported by the prime minister and Chuka Umunna, shadow secretary of state for business innovation and skills, entrepreneur James Caan, O2, Aldermore Bank and Make It Cheaper.
Other supporters include the Association of City and Town Management, Federation of Small Businesses, Association of Convenience Stores, Northern Ireland Independent Retail Trade Association and Ingenious Britain.
