Vintage Fun for Volunteers!

Happy New Year everyone! We do hope this year brings you peace and happiness even though we currently seem to be wading through rain and mud at every turn! It can’t last, honestly…….. So to cheer us up we thought we’d share a few more photos from the lovely event we were involved in back in the summer with Julia’s House in Corfe Mullen.

Children’s charity Julia’s House   (dedicated to supporting children with life-limiting conditions) wanted to say thank you to their volunteers as part of National Volunteers Week by holding a vintage tea at their hospice at Corfe Mullen.

With more than 100 volunteers supporting the charity – taking on work from fundraising to van driving; working in the Julia’s House shops, providing admin work and giving support at the hospice itself – there’s a huge range and potential for volunteering activity that is vital to the charity.

The vintage tea was an opportunity for employees from Julia’s House to say thank you – serving tea and scones to volunteers and showing them the facilities and work that takes place at the Corfe Mullen hospice.

Follow the link HERE to see what Julia’s House had to say about the day and do enjoy the photos below – we just lurve that lion!!! And he didn’t eat too many cream cakes either!

What Alice Found

What Alice FoundThere are very few vintage traders that we really adore – but when the lovely Nicki from the Cherry Closet told us she was opening a vintage boutique at the edge of Boscombe and it was going to be called “What Alice Found” we knew that this was going to be something REALLY special.

“What Alice Found” has now been open a whole year and is going from strength to strength including the recent introduction of Ikkonik men’s vintage clothing, featured stylings in the Daily Mail, gorgeous vintage windows and interiors, blog-features and loads of fashion shoots together with Nicki and Karen’s nominations and semi-finalist placings for the Langtry Manor Venus Women in Business awards.

We joined them at their busiest ever day – their first birthday party so we could celebrate with them in Mad Hatter style… with Sharon and Gloria from the Vintage Hair Lounge providing their wonderful beehives, victory rolls and magical coiffures plus all of the fabulous vintage clothes it really was a magical day!
