Oh, what lovely summer weather we are having ~ who knows what Friday will bring ~ sunshine or rain? Whatever the weather The Vintage Summer Boutique will be open, outside in the garden if the sun is shining, or indoors if there is the chance of getting wet! The house is currently being turned upside down in preparation (have always been told to have contingency plans!)

Whatever the weather, you are welcome to join us ~ here are the house rules:

1. Please turn a blind eye to all cobwebs that haven't seen a duster lately.
2. Please be patient with dear husband and father who have been roped in as caterers.
3. No squabbling with others over the gorgeous merchandise ~ once it's gone, it's gone!
4. Please understand that ours is a family home and there may be the odd piece of lego found underfoot or dry piece of toast under the sofa (but you shouldn't be looking under the sofa!)
5. Only those with a friendly disposition and highly developed sense of humour allowed. (Ours is still just about intact)

Looking forward to meeting you all...

The very first 'Vintage Summer Boutique'...

A brand new blog and an addition to my 'at home' vintage style fairs ~ I am pleased to announce that following the success of my first open house sale last December ('The Vintage Christmas Boutique') I shall be hosting 'The Vintage Summer Boutique' In June.

A petite summer garden party style affair (weather permitting!) in a country cottage setting.   Again, I shall be offering a selection of original vintage, antique and retro goods, alongside handmade treasures and carefully selected items with a vintage theme.  Textiles, linens, haberdashery, fashion, furniture and more...

I shall also be joined by a small gathering of like~minded souls selling their gorgeous this space for more details.

I hope to make the occasion just a little bit different from the usual larger fairs ~  a bit like an old fashioned village fete where you can stroll around my cottage garden (hopefully the roses will be at their best) enjoy tea and cake and talk 'vintage' to your heart's content.

All are welcome ~ to receive an invitation please use the link on the sidebar to email me with your address details.

Hope to see you there!
