The 2nd Annual Vintage Textiles and Costume Day @ Dairy House

It's that time again - 10 April is coming round rapidly, so I thought I should jog your memories. Don't forget to put the date in your diaries. If last year's Day is anything to go by, this year will also be a brilliant day out - an opportunity for those of you passionate about fabrics and vintage costume to also enjoy the antiques and decorative items that Dairy House itself has to offer.

The 2nd Annual Vintage Textiles
and Costume Day 
@ Dairy House

Sunday 10 April 2011
from 10.00 am–4.00 pm

Another opportunity to enjoy our unique combination
of Textiles, Vintage Clothing, Antiques and many other
Decorative Treasures at this Annual One Day Event
Station Road, Semley, Shaftesbury  SP7 9AN
Tel: 01747 853317; normal opening Mon–Sat 10-5; Sun 11–4

3 miles N of Shaftesbury, 5 miles S of A303.
Turn off A350 (Shaftesbury–Warminster road) at sign to Semley Industrial Estate

Free admission & ample free parking

Once again there will be 9 or 10 visiting textile dealers sharing the day with our Dairy House dealers who will be bringing in textile-related goodies to display on their individual areas within the shop.

Guy and his Silver Coffee Machine plan to join us - if you came last year you'll remember he had a disaster with his van just as he was setting out, and consequently didn't reach us - and will be offering yummy coffee, hot chocolate, tea, traybakes etc. There is the distinct possibility that one of the Dairy House dealers who is a whizz at cake-making may bring some cakes to help the day go sweetly!

The list of visiting dealers is almost complete and once the list is finalised I'll post links to all the names. In the meantime I think you will recognise most of these: Tracey Hewlett, Donna Flower, Loveday James, Niki Fretwell, Helen Roskell, Caroline Bushell, Chloe Antiques, Hetty Purbrick and Tamsyn Gregory. Liz van Hasselt and I will of course be there with our regular Dairy House stock, together with some interesting bits and pieces brought in especially for the day and at least 10 other Dairy House dealers will be in the shop on the day and will be pleased to chat to you about their stock.

Any enquiries can be addressed to me via this blog, the Dairy House blog or website or by email, or have a word with Liz van Hasselt at one of the many Fairs she'll be attending between now and then!

Last year we had between 600 and 700 visitors on the day. We look forward to seeing you all again, and maybe even more! We can promise you a jolly day!
