About Us

Handmade Design is based in the heart of Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Bringing together unique handmade, upcycled and vintage items. We pride ourselves in stocking locally designed and handmade gifts, homeware and crafts.

Laura, the Owner of Handmade Design, is passionate about all things handmade. She loves being able to support UK Designers, Makers and Crafters and is proud to currently be stocking over fifty!

Handmade Design first opened it’s doors back in 2015. A new journey for Handmade Design began in October 2018, when Laura took over the shop. Laura had previously been selling her crafts and vintage finds in Handmade Design, when the opportunity of taking over arose.

Since the start of October 2018, there have been many changes to the layout and stock within the shop.

New stock and designers are added to the shop all the time so there is always something new to see when you come!


And it’s always worth remembering…

“Many of our creations are one offs therefore the item you go home to think about today, is about to be purchased by the person who did the same yesterday”


We are open seven days a week and are dog friendly too so you are more than welcome to bring your four legged friends with you. We are a dog friendly shop, that is open seven days a week, so you are more than welcome to
