Welcome to the fabulousplaces.co.uk blog! The website is dedicated to the most fabulous independent places, makers and services in Derbyshire and nearby.
The blog is updated by me, Deb – the founder of fabulousplaces.co.uk, and covers all sorts of things from fabulous suppliers to fabulous events and great things I’ve spotted along the way. I’m a mummy, lover of cake and and fabulous little shops.
So, why did I set up fabulousplaces.co.uk?
For many years I have been out and about in my home town, Derbyshire, with my husband and our dogs, Molly & Toby. Each visit I would find another fabulous shop, gallery, producer, cafe etc, all of which I added to my list of places to visit I would return to and recommend to friends. My initial idea for the site came from pure frustration of not being able to find this type of information on the internet. Before we ventured into Derbyshire I would Google the areas we were visiting to find out which coffee shops, eateries and gift shops were there, but I would always struggle to find anything of interest, so it was a case of walking down back streets and finding them for myself. In July 2008 fabulousplaces.co.uk, which is now my full time career! I feel very lucky indeed!
The blog will cover my journey to finding more fabulous places and producers and also anything else I think you’ll find interesting along the way!
