Fabulous Fabulous Places

Good morning all.  It was a good old week for Darby & Joan last week, a pretty amazing start to the year with lots of exciting project to be involved with.

I had a meeting with the lovely Deb from Fabulous Places to discuss the next event she is organising – a date for your diary – Saturday 7th July at The Roundhouse in Derby.  Just the most perfect venue for a shopping event, I am sure a lot of you reading this know exactly what I am talking about!

Since January 2009 Fabulous Places has been holding food & gift events around Derbyshire. The aim behind the events is to offer you a unique opportunity to visit an event that has been carefully put together. Deb organises events that she would choose to attend…there is always an attention detail, the venue is always stunning and there’s absolutely no compromise with the stall quality as each and every stall is handpicked by her.

Darby & Joan have been involved with Fabulous Places for some time now and have exhibited at several of their events.  They are always the highlight of our year, and, whilst the preparation leading up to the event is pretty hectic, the excitement and anticipation far outweighs the inevitable string of evenings when we are working until 2am!!  You can just see our stand in the midst of all the people in the photo which was taken at the Christmas Fair 2011.

Deb was looking for something a little different to add to her catering for this summer’s event, and that’s where Darby & Joan come in.  We are going to have a Vintage Tea Rooms so that you can all sample a selection of our Afternoon Tea menu and enjoy tea and cakes served on our vintage china.

Our staff has been picked, our menu is being tweaked and added to and I am bursting with ideas – some probably far too OTT, but I can dream!

It is early days I know, but I am so so excited about it I wanted to share it and pop it on the blog.
