We are on the hunt for local craftspeople to showcase their products in our new showroom
UPDATE 15th Feb
We are now only a couple of weeks away from completing the full refurbishment of our Ruddington showroom.
We have had a big uptake of the crafts and gift shop area of the showroom but there is still room to squeeze in more!
Please do pass this link on to anyone you know that may be interested in getting their goodies on the shelves and help us create the number one go to shop for all things made by hand.
UPDATE 7th Jan
We have had a wonderful response to the proposal so far…thank you all very much!
So far we have been offered the following:
Childrens toys, clothes and booties
Fairy houses and general gifts
Please keep them coming, we still have a lot of space yet to offer…
It would be marvellous to include some more homemade nibbles, e.g. jams, biscuits etc (obviously, as with all edible items, these would have to come from council approved kitchens) so please spread the word!

Firstly and foremostly, we’d like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!
As some may have noticed, we are undertaking a complete refurbishment of our kitchen showroom on Charles Street, Ruddington. We had been hoping to complete this before the end of last year, but the nature of the pre-Christmas rush dictated otherwise! The refurbishment is set to be a very exciting new beginning for us as we look to focus much more on our local market.
Whilst we plan to continue with our established reputation of high end, bespoke kitchen designers, we will be shifting the ethos of the business to three core values: quality, local and affordable. We feel that whatever budget a client may have, we can offer style and quality equaled with great design. Our new showroom will be heavily focussed on fun and client involvement, especially by way of our scaled model kitchen station where clients can have a go at designing and building their own kitchen!
But it’s our local value upon which we wish to expand. December’s Ruddington Christmas fayre demonstrated what local artisanal talent there is hidden away behind closed doors; and that got us thinking. Why do the villagers of Ruddington see this just once a year?
So, we decided, if there is a significant enough response, that we would like to designate an area of the showroom to local designers and craftspeople to display and sell their products. Even, in the era of the supermarkets and internet, we believe collectively we can demonstrate the values of homemade and unique products.
We will have approximately thirty metres of racking to fill, so very loosely we are thinking one or two linear metres per business. There will be no cost to any interested party, and we are planning on having the refurb completed by the end of February. If you feel you would like to know more, or if you have a friend that may be interested, then please contact Rob on 07879 634598 to have a chat, or send us an email.
