“It is an absolute honour and actually mind-blowing to win this award especially as we have only been open for just three months! I thought it was incredible to have been recognised as a finalist, let alone to win.

“There is some massive talent in Chesterfield and these awards are perfect to be able to showcase and celebrate the talent of our local crafts people within the community.

“Everything is still to come for A Little Bazaar as we continue to grow and increase our online market. Hopefully this will enable us to move to bigger premises and even branch out into other areas, like vintage dresses and accessories.” Brodie Spitfire-Jagger, Owner, A Little Bazaar

 

 

Best New Store (Opened 2014/2015) – Sponsored by Banner Jones Solicitors

Best New Store

Finalist –PK House
Finalist –A Little Bazaar
Winner -Meadowfresh

 

 

 

“It is an absolutely brilliant honour to have won the award for Best New Store. We’ve been based in Chesterfield for 22 years and have been looking for bigger premises for many years. Prior to opening the new shop last year we travelled literally hundreds of miles up and down the country, seeking ideas and inspiration for when the right property became available. It was never an option to move out of Chesterfield as we have so many loyal customers.

“We are very proud of our new store and people often comment and believe that we are a national company and not the local family-run business that we are.

“Even though we have our fantastic new store, it really is the team that makes it. We have 26 employees across our three shops, the others based at Dobbies in Barlborough and Arrow Farm in Worksop, and our bakery in Clay Cross, all of whom have worked so very hard towards this achievement.  Our team is fantastic and always give 110%. This award will mean the absolute world to them. Our customers always comment about our great customer service and how friendly the team are, but to have this recognition as well, is the icing on the cake.”  Andrea Brooks, Owner, Meadowfresh

My philosophy is simple: shopping should be a pleasurable and enjoyable experience. I travel extensively throughout the UK and Europe to source beautiful things, making sure that I meet the suppliers and understand their business ethics and practices.  We’re different and our collection isn’t to be found everywhere.
