Unique hand crafted glassware

Want to find our lovely handmade glass?                       Our stockists are listed below. A perfect excuse for a road trip to somewhere rather nice.
Bakewell Tourist Information Centre- Old Market Hall, Bridge Street, Bakewell, Derbyshire. DE45 1DS.(01629) 816558. 
        Above left shows the picturesque visitor centre and above right shows Bakewell Bridge- a perfect duck-viewing platform. Bakewell puddings can also be enjoyed from this vantage point.

Bakewell is a historic market town with its regular and bustling market being held in the town every Monday, and a farmers market held on the last Saturday of each month at The Agricultural Business Centre. Yearly events include the ever-popular Bakewell Show. Nearby attractions include Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Monsal Head.

Castleton Tourist Information Centre- Buxton Road, Hope Valley, S33 8WP (01433) 620679

The utterly stunning Winnats Pass- worth a visit to Castleton just for the drive/walk/run/cycle up/down this road. 

(local legend says it is haunted after a young couple were murdered by miners)


Set in such a pretty location, with bags of caverns to explore, windy ridges to walk along, and lovely shops to spend your precious pennies in, Castleton is a visitors delight. Watch out for the local ducks who vacate the stream to hang about the seating are near to the visitor centre ready to hoover up lost picnic morsels.

Here we stock a full range of sheep, with various other colours and designs making appearances throughout the year.

Crich Tramway Museum- The National Tramway Museum, Crich Tramway Village, Nr. Matlock, Derbyshire. DE4 5DP. (01773) 854321 http://www.tramway.co.uk/


Crich Tramway Museum is our newest stockist is just the most fabulous place to visit. They have regular events going on, such as the 1940s weekend, beside the seaside week, and car rally weekends to name a few. There are shops, the beautiful Red Lion pub, tea rooms. Lots of trams (obviously!) and loads of friendly folk to make sure you enjoy your day. Its a real family friendly place, and dogs are allowed too, (yes, even on the trams)so no need for Fido to miss out (though he wont be allowed in the tearooms)


Ye Olde Tuck Shop- Church Street, Ashover, S45 0AB.


  I really find delivering to this shop a difficulty, as when I get there, the first thing I have to do is battle with myself to resist buying one of a multitude of home made cakes that are on offer, and then, when I lose the battle, I have to decide. Lemon drizzle? carrot cake? chocolate Smartie topped? *sigh*

It is a wonderful Aladdins cave of a shop, absolutely jam packed with local, hand made crafts and goodies. I hear the local pub just down the road is pretty spot-on too, so it could be that you take home some extra calories should you visit here. We stock a small, varied range here, you can normally find a Drynosedog owl or  sheep nestling on a shelf somewhere.

Ashover show is held on the Rectory Fields every August, and we have a stall at the event, which is one of the most traditional and fabulous country shows going. Don your tweed for this one

Derby Tourist Information Centre- Assembly Rooms Market Place, Derby, DE1 3AH.(01332) 255802

A perfect base for exploring the Peak District, Derby is the UK`s most central city and has bags to offer. Shopping, festivals, and peregrine falcons are all to be found here. (for the peregrines- look towards the Cathedral) 


A small range of animals are stocked at this centre.

The Peak District Lead Mining Museum- Grand Pavilion, South Parade, Matlock.DE4 3NR.(01629) 583834 http://www.peakdistrictleadminingmuseum.co.uk/

The Grand Pavilion is just a short walk from the inland seaside resort that is Matlock bath.  There are shops, cafes, fish and chips and arcades all on one stretch of road which runs alongside the River Derwent. Another great place for calorie collecting. Try and visit for the annual Venetian nights. (starts September)

Chatsworth House and Bakewell are just a few miles down the road, and there is also a gem of a place called Caudwells Mill on the way. Independent craft workers are housed in old stone buildings where they peddle their wares alongside the working flour mill (buy yourself a bag of the flour from here too- it makes great home made bread) There is also a cafĂ© here and it serves the best vegi food I know of.


Here we stock sheep, owls and fluffy robins in a full range of shapes and sizes, and also the daisy design in small tealight holders (pastel colours only)

Ashbourne Tourist Information Centre- Town Hall, Market Place, Derbyshire. DE6 1ES.(01335) 343666

 Another fabulous market town, proving yet again that I only take Drynosedog glassware to the very best places.

Ashbourne has a lot going for it. It is pretty. It has a market, (actually, it has two markets- Thursdays and Saturdays) It is not far from the stepping stones of Dovedale and the gentle hill climb of Thorpe Cloud. It is a mere stones throw from the Tissington Trail. And you can find hedgehogs, owls and sheep here (glass ones- though I can imagine there are a lot of real ones of all the above mentioned too)

The centre is now located tucked in the town hall- you can find it just to the right of the main doors. Follow the sign down the old, cobbled alley to the door on your left.

Everythings Rosy- 8 Hardwick Street, Buxton, Derbyshire.SK17 6DH (01629) 78778

This place is an utter treasure trove for all things vintage, shabby chic and pretty. A generous chunk of the stock here is handmade locally, and there is also a tearoom where you can chill out with a cuppa (served in vintage china, of course) while you decide which piece of painted furniture to buy.

Set in the heart of the spa town of Buxton, with loads and loads of great shops nearby, aswell as The Pavilion Gardens, (which hosts a range of craft, artist and jewellery fairs) this isn't the place to come without a full purse, as there is bound to be something you want to take home.

We stock a full range of roses here, and some small seasonal tealight  holders too (currently some very cute pastel coloured sheep, hens, bunnies and daisies)


Chesterfield Tourist Information Centre- Rykneld Square, Chesterfield. S40 1SB. (01246) 345777

We are back again at this gem of a location and here we are stocking a small selection of our animal ranges alongside a few pastel coloured daisy pieces. Chesterfield is an historic market town and the diversity of the events here are brilliant. There are farmers markets, flea markets and the newest- the artisan market. There is sure to be something you like amongst all the stalls that are here. And if not, why not have a peep at the famous crooked spire? Its right opposite the tourist info centre which just so happens to very handily in the centre of the town. Staff here will only be too happy to help you decide where to go and how best to plan your day.

Seymours Interiors- The Vaults, Coldwell Street, Wirksworth, DE4 4FB.(01629) 826622 http://www.seymourinteriors.co.uk/

A great interior design shop, full of home irresistible accessories, designer fabrics and paints.There is also an interior design service available. Wirksworth also has a wide range of antique and vintage shops, tea rooms and a market.

The Veterinary Health Centre- 4 Greenways, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire.FY8 3LY

Stocked here in amongst the flea treatment and the Bonios is small range, which changes throughout the year. Please note that this is a vets practice so I am not suggesting this is a place for a day out, it is merely on the page to highlight that we do have some stock available here, should you be in the area and possibly on your way there anyway for a booster for your dog.
