Lifted from our Facebook page:
“It is with great sadness and reluctance that we have to announce the end of Boscombe Vintage Market today.
Unfortunately this means that there will be no market this Saturday.
This was a very hard decision to make, but over the last few months we haven’t seen as many customers as we used to, and as a result we were beginning to lose many of our loyal traders too. We tried to find a different approach and also go back to a monthly market but it just wasn’t working.
Thank you to everyone who has bought from us, came and had a browse, stuck with us over the years, and for your continual support on Facebook too, we tried to keep it going for you!
As we are shutting down BVM, we are also looking to do something new too so we will keep you posted with any updates for the future.
Boscombe Vintage Market”
Can’t put it any better myself. We’ve had the loveliest customers, and made some wonderful friends, and enjoyed ourselves hugely. But all good things come to an end eventually, and we just couldn’t keep going in the Royal Arcade any longer. Keep an eye out for us “popping up” here and there, and in some way, shape or form – we’ll be back.
We’re on this Saturday, 7th May, 10am to 4pm in the Royal Arcade as usual. The doors will be open, the sun will be shining, and hip-hip-hooray, there’ll be no scaffolding! Temping pics to follow…
The sun was out this Saturday and so was Boscombe Vintage Market! As always, there were plenty of vintage and handmade goodies to see. Here are just a few of the things you might have spotted if you came along…
Necklace from Lulabop Jewellery.
Purses from Ten & Six.
Antique typewriter from Before Digital.
Cotton threads from VintageMaid.
Picture from Molly & Harlequin.
Jewellery from Covet Petersfield.
Clocks from Salvaged By Sally.
Oil burners from Peggyrae.
Music from Harp Nouveau.
There was some sad news last month, as one of our traders – Jo from Eliza: Interiors & Design – sadly passed away. She was a pleasure to trade alongside and will be hugely missed by everyone at the market. Her husband, Bobby, did a stall in her memory with some of her beautiful handmade creations. ❤
Jo’s beautiful handmade hearts.
The next market will be on Saturday 7th May 2016, and as usual we’ll be in the Royal Arcade from 10am – 4pm. Do come along and see us!
Some of the traders from this month: * Peggyrae * Covet Petersfield * Salvaged By Sally * Ten & Six * Molly & Harlequin * VintageMaid * Lulabop Jewellery * Before Digital * Harp Nouveau *

VintageMaid Angie will have a sale of vintage knitting patterns: instead of the usual 50p each, they’ll be 30p each or 4 for £1! For those who don’t knit, these make brilliant card fronts; some will have you in stitches of a different sort…
And here’s a “helping hand” from VintageMaid Angie to speed you on your way to us!
Another bustling Boscombe Vintage Market has been and gone, and despite the wind and rain outside there was plenty of colour and heaps of vintage/handmade charm inside to wash away the winter blues. Thanks to everyone who braved the weather and came along!

We have some intriguing items to tempt you!
