About Atticus Boo

Established in 2003, we have been searching for and finding the perfect products for every occasion for years now and we still love what we do. We look for understated quality, the unusual, the quirky, the innovative, the stylishly detailed and the magical - we have a passion, when choosing products, for always seeking out what we believe are the best of its kind, whatever ‘it’ may be. Our shop is based in the most beautiful historical building in England’s Peak District in the spa town of Buxton, world famous for its spring water. The Cavendish Arcade, was originally part of the Buxton Baths complex and can be found right next door to the newly restored Crescent. We are inspired to do justice to the beauty of the surrounding countryside and architecture by always keeping our eyes open for the best products we can find.

From the founder

Finding the perfect version of what you’re looking for is what we strive to do. We work hard to find the best so that you don’t have to.

A bit about us, where it all started and what matters to us....

I started Atticusboo in 2003 when my son Alfie Atticus (whence the shop name) was a baby, mainly because I wanted to create a lifestyle doing something I loved and was good at, ie selecting beautiful gifts and homeware, but that would still allow me to be there for every school assembly and nativity play. Employing other local mums, who are now dear friends and still part of the business all these years later, meant we could all share childcare and hours to allow us to be there for our children whilst running a busy business. We are a family business and we put our heart and soul into what we do. We handpick every product in the shop carefully and we particularly love great design, functionality and products with a bit of soul or that just make you smile.
