Originally based in the lovely Derbyshire village of Mickleover, about 4 miles from Derby city, The Alphabet Gift Shop Ltd is four businesses in one.
It has 2 gorgeous gift shops, in Mickleover and Burton on Trent, specialising in personalised gifts for all occasions and celebrations, a wholesale gift business, a product design and personalisation department and within The Alphabet Gift Shop Burton, the Lowercase coffee shop!
From its party planning days back in thelate 90s the business has changed and developed over its fourteen year history.
It started with the birth of Sweaty Sues (dont ask!) our bespoke fleece tops that were sold by a team of party planners through home parties up and down the country (some of those fleeces are still going strong!)
As fleeces became popular on the high street it moved on to design and produce a range of nightwear and casual wear under the brand name Lazy Sunday which were selected by buyers from independent shops across the UK and department stores Beatties, Harrods and Jenners of Edinburgh.
The success of the Lazy Sunday brand led to the development of a range for babies and children which was called Little Lazy, the brand name which is still use for the companys range of baby and childrens cushions, blankets and bags.
We continue to supply our Little Lazy range to mail order catalogues such as Mothercare and Party Pieces, to websites specializing in either children's gifts or personalised gifts, to independent retailers with shops or boutiques across the country and to specialist gift website Not on the High Street.
And of course, the Little Lazy range features in our gift shop and on this website.
When we buy for our shop and for the website we look for beautifully made, thoughtfully designed, inspiring products that we would love to have in our own homes. Products that are made in the UK and, in particular in Derbyshire are particularly appealing and we are constantly amazed at the skill and talent of our local Derbyshire and Staffordshire designer makers.
We hope you will find something to surprise and delight as you look through the pages of our website and we would love to hear your comments and suggestions. email@example.com
