As an #SBS winner, MK Kids Interiors was one of the 12 businesses, chosen out of hundreds of business to be attending the Autumn Fair 2018.
Louise Young, managing director of Spring & Autumn Fair, said: “Deciding the winners has been no easy task, with every entrant making a sound case for being here at Autumn Fair. We are, however, more than confident that the twelve small businesses that we’ll be welcoming in the #SBS Pavilion come September 2 were the most innovative and unique of the 36 shortlisted.
