About

Welcome to Vintage Bluebird Gifts and Interiors situated in the pretty Derbyshire town of Ashbourne. We can be found on an old cobbled alley between the Shaw Croft car park and St John Street (Opposite Chimes Cafe). A warm welcome and wonderful shopping experience are assured and we would love to meet you.

We source a variety of vintage inspired gifts and home accessories from smaller independent UK suppliers; we stock products from companies with a strong ethical foundation and from companies with excellent reputation for quality. We embrace the spirit of the true independent store and fill our shelves with gifts and home accessories that are not usually found on the high street. We also have a number of local suppliers that we support so we can offer something original and local.

We also make handmade cards, personalised bunting and fabric lampshades on the premises so can truly offer a special gift that you will not find anywhere else. We welcome telephone and e-mail enquiries and would be happy to talk through any requests that you might have.

If you are not visiting Ashbourne then please take a look at our online store where all of our most popular products can be purchased. Postage is free of charge when spending £50.00 or more with us. If you like what you see please let us know by joining us on Facebook and Twitter.

Background

At Vintage Bluebird Gifts and Interiors we are constantly sourcing wonderful products that reflect our passion for great British design; we hope the website reflects this spirit and you find something to your taste and pocket.

The bluebird is a symbol of hope. Sailors would get a tattoo in port whenever they completed 5,000 nautical miles. One popular tattoo was that of a bluebird with its wings spread, positioned on the hand between the index finger and the thumb. If a sailor was ever in trouble the simple action of making the birds wings flap would send a message of hope to would be rescuers.
