This month at Sbri we've been working on something pretty cool. We've picked out some gems from our favourite local small businesses and artists to create the ultimate Dorset gift bundle, and we’re giving it all away to one of you.
Celebrating the best of the south coast, the bundle includes your caffeine fix, reading materials, sweet snacks and some gorgeous accessories for yourself and your home. Being founded in Dorset, our team have a life-long love affair with this patch of the south coast and we wanted to introduce you to some of our local faves in time for the festive season -- so even if you don't win, you might just come across a new small business to fall in love with.
In this series of blog posts we'll be introducing you to all the brands in our Sbri & Friends giveaway so you can get to know them a little better.
We caught up with Parlourmentary founder Meg to find out more about their story.
What's the story behind your Dorset brand?
A unique independent cheese shop in the heart of Southbourne, Dorset.
Boasting some of the finest cheese, cured meats and provisions from independent producers, suppliers & farmers both locally and further afield.
What is your most iconic product and what makes it special?
The entire cheese fridge! We take care to curate the best selection from incredible artisanal producers.
Has the local area inspired your product?
Absolutely, it was born out of The Larder House, where James would source the best cheeses. After many years of standing in the cold with high street length cues at Christmas he decides to celebrate it with a dedicated space!
What's your favourite secret spot in Dorset to visit?
Keeping it local with our beautiful beaches. Kept even sweeter by our well stocked drinks offering and ever changeable ice cream machine!
Has your product brand made a positive impact on people or the planet?
We really hope so. We’re so, so proud of the area and have really enjoyed and help to encourage local growth with independent businesses.
