boscombe vintage market

Friday, 11 April 2014

we got out of bed on saturday morning and headed straight for boscombe vintage marketthe optimistic weather around the previous week had disappeared, as if winter was not ready to let go just yet. to dodge the spitting rain, we dived into the victorian royal arcade at boscombe, which hosts the boscombe vintage market every first saturday of the month since 2010.

the stretch between boscombe and the edge of pokesdown is known as bournemouth's thriving vintage quarter — the best area to hunt for unique pieces, old-fashioned accessories, mid-century modern furniture and crafted goods. the vintage market is the perfect place to discover a bunch of quirky independent shops and cafes nestled around boscombe.

i stumbled upon a lovely brown leather bag desperate to be found. it reminded of a series i used to watch as a child, doctor quinn, medecin women. the series featured a female doctor with cowboys and indians was set in colorado springs. i had been looking for a bag with a laptop sleeve for a while and as it happens, my mac fitted perfectly within the inside pocket.

saturday is also market day on the pedestrian part of boscombe high street and includes stalls of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, flowers and clothing; all at very reasonable prices. jack bought four rib-eye steaks for ten pounds — how to keep a man happy — we then headed for a much deserved brunch and coffee at boscanova.
