Feeling Festive!

Well excitement!  I had School Governor Training at Teenagers school last night, it was very interesting and important but not the most fun ever….I had at least two much better offers including knit and natter with the totally lovely group at Sandleheath but duty was calling.  Mr M had the best idea though and when I moped in at 8.30 we shot off to Pokesdown to see the Christmas tree.   What a lovely evening and there were still lots of people around by 9pm although we had obviously missed the childrens activities and carol singing.

Betsy from Happy Days Retro Vacations was totally gorgeous!  They are just down the road at Horton (near Wimborne) so I think I’ll be donating my house to the next set of people that come to stay and heading down there instead!!

Beautiful Festive Windows from Fishee Designs and Love from Hetty and Dave

Emily from Poppy Meadows was there in a incredibly pretty embroidered dress.  As well as having a lovely chat I got very excited by the new collars on her stall!

 The Tattoo Parlour Cafe was the venue for a market and these were two new fab sellers to me.  Top is some highly desirable owlie cushions from Vintage Mardle and below are the amazing Christmas decorations from Spandangly.   We really really wanted the plastic spice rack you can just see at the back of the Vintage Mardle table but since our caravan project is going nowhere we sadly had to leave it.  As for Spandangly, everything was gorgeous and glittery but the music notes particularly caught the eye!

I was trying to keep a tight rein on my cash (by taking no cash with me!) but I had to have this beautiful festive wreath from this lovely lady who I almost went to school with (10 years apart!).  We also bought a Christmas pressie from Emily and a fantastic charity calendar from the lovely girls at What Alice Found.   This is sold in aid of the Wessex Autistic Society and is full of lovely vintage inspired piccies  from in and around Bournemouth so do snap one up if you can.

A fantastic love filled evening and it’s great to see so much commitment by local people to their area.

Well done Pokesdown and keep the vintage love xx


Vintage Fair Gallery – really the last one!

Thanks to Heather from the fantastic Turquoise Hare for these brill photos sent all the way from America!   Don’t forget that Miss Dolly whose beautiful caravan is shown here has her Vintage Wedding Fair coming up very soon on Sunday 16th October at Chettle House.  There is going to be much vintage love on show and it has to be a must for anyone planning a wedding!

Exhibitor Focus – Miss Dolly’s Vintage Parties

Heavens but the fair is getting close now!  We are off for a spot on local radio this morning so thought it must be time to start our series highlighting our exhibitors…

Today we are looking at Miss Dolly’s Vintage Parties.  Miss Dolly will be bringing her extremely pretty and lovingly restored 1950’s caravan  along to the fair to promote her vintage events service which includes some incredibly cute childrens parties, why oh why was there no such thing when we were small?!  She will also be selling some lovely things….

Miss Dolly's Vintage Parties

Come along and meet Dolly and be inspired by her vintage events.  In the meantime have a look at her pretty pretty website.
