Over the weekend I was exhibiting at the Derbyshire Food & Drink Fair at Elvaston Castle. I had a great time promoting Fabulous Places and meeting up with familiar faces and introducing my business to lots of new people. The Handpicked Guide to Derbyshire proved very popular with over 1,600 copies being snapped up!
Thank you to everyone who visited the stand, I hope you enjoy the Handpicked Guide and I look forward to seeing you at the Summer Market at The Roundhouse on 7th July!
Below are some photos I took during the weekend.

Plans are coming together for this year’s Fabulous Places Summer Market on Sunday 7th July 2013. I’m delighted to be bringing the event back to The Roundhouse for a third year. With more more handpicked food and gift exhibitors, a vintage tea room, fun for little ones and much more, it really is an event not to be missed!

I’m working on the floor plan for the Summer Market at the moment and I thought I would give you a preview of what’s to come on the 7th July! The Summer Market will be back at The Roundhouse in Derby for a 4th year with more handpicked food and gift exhibitors, the popular vintage tea room, hot food and refreshments on the plaza and fun for little ones.
The event is fully booked in record time this year and I’m delighted to have found some truly fabulous food producers and makers and gifts shops to showcase their products at the event.

A big Happy New Year from Fabulous Places!
2012 was a great year…I found lots of great new places to include on the website, fabulous food and gift events and two 64 page pocket guides showing you my handpicked favourites around Derbyshire. 2013 looks to be exciting too, with the fabulous two Markets at the Roundhouse in Derby and more printed publications, I can’t wait to get started! The website will also be going through a redesign, for no other reason than I love to design and I’m ready for a fresh new look!
Here are some fabulous dates for your diary:
1. Sunday 7th July 2013 – Summer Market
2. Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th November – Christmas Market
Both events will be held at the Roundhouse, Derby.
There will also be two more handpicked guides to Derbyshire available for Spring/Sumer and again for Late Autumn/Winter.

This year’s Christmas Market was a great success, such a lovely atmosphere with lots of gorgeous gifts and delicious food.
A big thank you to all the fabulous exhibitors, visitors, helpers and the wonderful Roundhouse staff. I would also like to thank Darby & Joan for hosting a delightful Vintage Tea Room and also Bluebells Dairy for dressing the event with gorgeous locally grown Christmas trees.
Congratulations to The Posh Pantry for winning Best in Show for Food and there were joint winners for the Best in Show for Gift, congratulation to Lavender grey and Amanda Hamilton Interior Design. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the exhibitors, I think you’ll agree that each and every exhibitor’s spaces looked fabulous.
I enjoyed the event so much and hope you did too!
Here are some snaps from the weekend…
