Hi - Exciting times, lots of new enquiries for vintage china, also
Swingletree Vintage will be at The Dorset Wedding Festival on Sunday 7th April 2013 at Holton Lee.  Check out the website for tickets.
It going to be a fantastic event, it's a must for anyone planning their wedding and the one event where the men will have something to do. As well as the usual exhibition, there will be live music from bands and singers you can hire for your big day and an area where you can purchase snacks or lunch. Even the kids will be entertained in the children’s marquee and they won’t cost you a penny as under 16s get in free!
So much for me to do, but first a cuppa and a couple of digestives (trying to be good before xmas and all that lovely cake)!
Thank you to everyone who has visited my website, wishing you all a merry christmas and happy new year.

Swingletree Vintage had our first Wedding Fair at Durlston Castle. What a great day, met lovely brides in a fantastic setting. Thank you Blue Bay Events for a well organised and busy day. A few thank you's - to Ian from Signature Catering Co. for my cup of tea when everyone else had coffee, Rose and Tom from onethousandwords wedding photography for being great company and Sam from South Coast Sweet Cart for saving my legs (it was a steep hill). Now time for a well deserved cup of tea and a piece of fruit cake I think.
