My shop: An anarchist's guide to small business

In his Budget the Chancellor unveiled changes to business rates to help small shopkeepers.

Carrie Reichardt is an artist who describes herself as an anarchist, but she knows the day to day business struggles of small shopkeepers all too well.

Her workspace in Chiswick, west London, looks like a shop, but she actually isn't allowed to sell anything there. Unable to afford business rates, she had to convert her shop into the home of an arts collective.

Video journalist Dougal Shaw went along to find out more.

This video is a part of a pilot series from the BBC Business Unit called My Shop'. The series creates video portraits of shopkeepers and their small, independent shops that follow a distinctive business model. To suggest a shop email: Dougal Shaw.
