Once again, Pamphill Parish Hall on the picturesque National Trust Kingston Lacy Estate Wimborne provides the perfect setting for this unique Vintage Boutique Fair.
An informal atmosphere in the cosy hall means buyers can chat with the small group of specialist sellers and browse at leisure through the fabulous array of vintage clothing and accessories, English and French textiles, Brocante, decorative furniture and furnishings, garden and homeware, jewellery and gifts.
Lovers of all things vintage will really appreciate the carefully chosen selection on sale. . .and for an energy boost between purchases (or if you can't bear to leave!) homebaked cakes and refreshments are available throughout the day- served on vintage china of course!
I just SO enjoyed organising the November fair in spite of all the hard work!
Being the inaugural event there were a few fraught moments (how many cakes to bake. . .how many flyers to print. . .how many people will come. . .will it snow???)
Preparations for the May fair are in full swing- Spring is such a pretty time and while the Village Hall certainly shone decked with bunting in the cold wintery sunshine, I can't wait to see how it looks with stallholders selling under the front canopy, leaves on the surrounding trees, and the countryside beyond bursting with beauty.
More people visited the Vintage Fair than any other event held at the hall causing a hiccup with parking, which is one problem I didn't forsee!
To ease the situation we're allowed to use the overflow car park in the adjoining Farm Shop, with easy access to the Hall.
I came across your blog when trawling the internet flooking for vintage finds. I am coming to the UK in early May and am excited that I will be able come to your Vintage Fair Could you tell me how I would make my way down by public transport? Where is the nearest train station to Pamphill?
