Larmer Tree Festival 2016

Although we’ve sadly stopped trading as a monthly market, a group of us who all met through the market were at Larmer Tree Festival last week for five days of fabulous vintage fun in the sun (and the clouds and rain too). We loved our time there surrounded by the wonderful sights, sounds and spectacles of the festival and can’t believe it’s all over for another year!

Thanks to everyone who popped in to see us and to all the organisers and volunteers at the festival. We’re already looking forward to next year…

Please check our Facebook page to keep up to date with any developments with the market.


Here we go again!

Clear your diaries for this weekend… Saturday 6th March, 10am-4pm, in the Royal Arcade, Boscombe; come & see your favourite traders and their vintage, handmade and upcycled wares, and welcome some new faces too!

*** STOP PRESS ***

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!

February Market 2016

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!

December Market

It’s time for another market and as always there’ll be a wonderful array of vintage and handmade goodies, with lovely live music too. That’s what we call Christmas shopping!

So come along and see us this Saturday 5th December 2015 in the Royal Arcade, Boscombe (BH1 4BT) from 10am – 4pm.

Here’s just a few of the items you might spot…


What could be lovelier than an elephant in a tutu? She’s from Eliza (Interiors & Design).

You’ll find this dear little deer on VintageMaid’s stall.

There'll also be beautiful live music in the morning from Harp Nouveau!
