To launch Bournemouthvintage.com we wanted to produce a photographic editorial that promotes both the eclectic backdrop of Pokesdown, Bournemouth’s vintage quarter, and the unique quality of fashion, antiques and handmade ethical products that can be purchased from our independent shops.
These images represent a number of local businesses, with each photo showcasing items from Pokesdown and Boscombe boutiques. What better way to promote our area to the masses?!
