Vintage Christmas Boutique at Woburn

Last Thursday saw sellers from all over the country come together in the beautiful Sculpture Gallery at Woburn Abbey for the Vintage Christmas Boutique organised so professionally by Ali of Betty and Violet.

The day was a spectacular success as everything was thought of down to the last detail.  The stands were a feast for the eyes and there was lots of temptation on offer.

I tried to take a selection of beautiful things including antique costume, antique wedding ephemera and antique Christmas decorations to name but a few.

I even had a rather lovely Edwardian lady watching over my stand.

Inside the sculpture Gallery.

Everyone wanted this beautiful urn, do you think they would have noticed if we had walked out with it?  You would need a low loader to transport it :)
It was lovely to meet fellow bloggers and meet lots of lovely new customers.  A big thank you to Ali and her lovely family for making the day such a success, and for all their hard work...here's looking forward to the next one...when Ali has recovered of course!
Have a great weekend.

  1. Jo, your stall was absolutely incredible. I wish that I had been able to spend more time looking at everyone's stalls as the stock for sale was just amazing ~ I wanted to be a customer not the organiser!! I think that this is the best display you have ever done ~ worthy of a magazine page....thank you again for your support and encouragement, it was a pleasure having you there!

  2. I came along as a customer and thought the day was really successful. Your stall was beautiful, there was so much to see and take in. I didn't realise you were Hesta or I would have said 'hello' as I am regular reader of your blog.
    Best wishes from Fiona (aka www.streetcomber.blogspot.com)
