THE OLD FLIGHT HOUSE EXPANDS

There's good news for vintage lovers!  The Old Flight House in Oxfordshire, where I have a unit, has expanded with two spacious new galleries, which are proving a welcome addition to the vintage and antiques emporium. Since the recent launch party celebrating the extended space, the centre now offers customers even more choice in terms of unique pieces for homes and gardens, as well as quirky gifts. Vintage fashion aficionados are also visiting regularly to check-out what's on offer and several units are specialising in beautiful vintage shop fittings and display pieces which look fabulous in a contemporary setting.

Since owners Michael and Sally Dunseath opened The Old Flight House in February, the centre has attracted customers from all over the UK as well as overseas visitors, often combining a visit with a trip to nearby Bicester Village and the sights of Oxford and the Cotswolds. Sally also has an inspiring unit specialising in French painted furniture in muted shades of slate, pink and white, which provide the backdrop to her eclectic collection of romantic vintage finds.

Glamorous vintage silk evening bags, fitted cashmere cardigans and intricate diamante brooches are currently popular on my unit, as well as handmade gift tags and greeting cards. I'll be adding more eveningwear soon, including a powder blue 60's brocade shift dress with embellished cuffs and slinky long jersey gowns from the 60's and 70's; all perfect for the festive season.
