We are The Rabbit Patch - a design and marketing company here at Cleveleys. First we brought you these much-loved Visit Fylde Coast websites, and now we hope that you'll enjoy our new online shop - we bring you the Seaside Emporium!
We've put together a range of our own original artworks which have all been produced by us here at The Rabbit Patch.
You can buy our lovely endless photographs fresh from the beach and Fylde Coast, available as prints and canvases.
We've started putting together a collection of original hand drawn illustrations, inspired by the seaside of the past and today. They've been painted by Derek - our designer and photographer and the one who is responsible for all the visuals which you've seen over the years.
Or you might prefer a more modern graphic - like this one below and the memes that you see on social media - all with a theme from the coast.
Keep an eye out on what we are doing - this is just the beginning and there's lots more to come - with different products and new images to follow.

Finding that perfect Christmas present for the person who has everything gets harder every year - when you've bought endless socks, nighties and boxes of chocolates, just what do you buy next?
What about one of these beautiful paintings from the Seaside Emporium?
Especially if your family member of friend loves the Fylde Coast, or maybe they once lived here and then moved away.
These beautiful illustrations and more besides are available online as plain prints, mounted or framed.
Get your dad his very own man cave for Christmas, and buy him a print of this original painting fresh from the Seaside Emporium.
You know what they say, a man and his shed (or garage) are seldom parted!
The man in your life might not have a place to call his own that looks just like this one, but we bet that your shed, garage, cellar or cupboard under the stairs is crammed full of bits and bobs that ‘might just come in handy’, much like our seaside themed ‘Man Cave’!
Why don't you show your dad just how much you treasure him and buy him something to gaze at and daydream...
Available as a print at only £12.50, or framed for just £30 (including delivery)
Thank you to everyone who has already bought our brand new Fylde Coast Christmas Cards, we've already had quite a lot of orders. Here's one that's all packed up and ready to go off to its new home. These postage scales have served me well too. I bought them when we started The Rabbit Patch all those years ago, never in my wildest dreams did I think we'd end up as we are now 😍
This is Fleetwood Radar Station. It's used by the students at the Nautical College. When Daddy Rabbit was a student at Lancaster Art College they got a new photography lecturer from industry. One of the many projects he got them involved in was photographing the radar station - it would have been around 1961. It had just been built and seemed to be out of this world and they got the commission to photograph it. He says he never thought he would come and live here. Amazing how things pan out isn't it. Shame he hasn't got any copies of the original photos.
We're having a bit of time off work this week, so I've got a cunning plan to pop into Granthams ArtDiscount today. Mmmm... think small child in sweet shop. Could be expensive!
Just had half an hour tying some branches in in the garden before the gales begin. These rose hips just said 'autumn' to me 👻
I've been being creative on my walk this afternoon. You get good results with a good camera, but anyone can take a half decent shot with an iPhone - even me! (Daddy Rabbit's photos are the ones in the Emporium, not my iPhone ones!)

From Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Thornton, Poulton, Blackpool, St Annes and Lytham. Find them all here https://www.seasideemporium.co.uk/greetings-cards. Old fashioned mail order also available!
Daddy Rabbit bought some new and very expensive watercolour paint in delicious little tubes. So he made a colour chart to know what each colour looks like. I thought it was pretty in its own right 😍
Early start at Fleetwood Town Business Club this morning, and look what they're getting a preview of! Yes, it's those famous Christmas Cards!!
A few people have asked about buying products but not paying online. I'm afraid our shop is online, but you can see most of our range of framed paintings on the walls at The Venue. However, we can also do old fashioned mail order if you prefer. Details below.
@Station_Lytham Thank you! Can be personalised for a business if required.
