Saturday 9th November we set out for our first Christmas Market of the year by Fabulous Places at Roundhouse Derby. And WOW, what a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas season ✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fabulous Places Markets aren’t your average Joe, they’re more like a mini celebration of the incredibly talented local independents. From the unique selection of independents & their products to the beautiful set up of the venue and a cheery welcome on the door, it was a challenge to not take home everything in sight.

We arrived as the doors were set to open but the snaking queue from the entrance told us everyone else had the same idea 😂 we were through & armed with a detailed map of all the stallholders in no time. From getting in until the moment we left we kept overhearing “it’s getting busier every year” or “this is the busiest we’ve ever seen it”, and even with more customers than ever the organisation couldn’t be faulted 👌

It was great to see people of all ages & multiple generations there from babies, to teenagers, millennials, their parents & grandparents too. A lady, with Prosecco in hand, said “well this has been a lovely day out” and we couldn’t agree more.

Massive kudos to the independents. You guys are seriously inspiring. From creating, curating, selling & everything in between your work never ends & your passion shines through it all 👏🏽 thanks for a FABULOUS weekend!

They’ll be back at The Roundhouse for the Spring Market on Sunday 29th March 2020. Oh and if you’re a small independent business and would like to be considered for a space, you can register your interest here.
