Lets Talk Vintage... At Bournemouth Vintage Emporium

When people think of fashion they often think of London as the place where fashion lives, but it exists down in the South-West too! Bournemouth is scattered with quirky, kitsch and unique fashion, and offers some of the best vintage items - you've just got to know where to look!

I went to Boscombe to visit the Bournemouth Vintage Emporium to see just what fashion treasures it holds, and I was not disappointed! (Had to resist the urge to buy so much, it wasn't easy!)

Bournemouth Vintage Emporium is the home of all things vintage; a place where lots of independent sellers such as What Alice Found, Love From Hetty & Dave and Glad Rag Retro have come together under one roof to sell their vintage finds or creations.

My first thoughts were how big it is - there are so many stalls! Each is designed like a little open-plan shop, and I loved that each had different furnishings from wallpapers to carpets or rugs, paintings to posters. Every store had it's own character which set them apart from one other. There is so much to look at, I really did lose track of time whilst I was in there!
The range of items you have to chose from is huge: accessories, jewellery and bags, shirts, coats and dresses (even stunning vintage bridal-wear) and hats, shoes and scarves. I didn't expect to fall in love with so much - you're guaranteed to find a perfect piece for you.
My favourite stalls would have to be Mork and Mindy for the cute sixties dresses they sell, Love From Hetty and Dave for their perfectly handmade leather animal pumps and first and foremost, Molly and Harlequin. I love the homemade cards and framed pictures they've created of messages spelled out in vintage playing cards.
If it's not fashion you're looking for you can still find lots of vintage pieces for you, such as home-ware, like ornaments, lamps and dinnerware sets, homemade crafts as mentioned above, and wall-art, from posters to paintings.

You can find Bournemouth Vintage Emporium at:

1172-1180 Christchurch Road, Boscombe East, Bournemouth, Dorset BH7 6DY
