It's been a crazy, bean-counting time at Muddy Hants, but we have our finalists.

Whoop-a-doodle. It’s been a crazy, bean-counting time at Muddy Hants, but we have our finalists – 135 businesses in 27 categories, all vying for your love: we totally, nearly broke the Internet again (it’s up and running now though, fear not).

So thank-you, thank-you to those who voted and to the many businesses involved, big Muddy love-ins to you all. Whether you’re finalists or no, you are still awards nominees and that won’t be forgotten.

I feel desperately conflicted today as I’m obviously delighted for those going through, but seriously gutted for those don’t (can I reiterate: you won’t be forgotten) and if you didn’t make it through, then let’s push on to Muddy Awards 2018.

Anyway, check-out the finalists below and go vote when the second round opens: Midday Wednesday 7 June.

Bonne chance, buena suerte, gannbatte and that.

    Mimi is always an Aladdin’s cave of loveliness with an ever changing stock. No visit is ever the same and there’s always something for everyone, a place I always go to to buy gifts for friends and family. Friendly staff and good prices, what more could you ask for!
