re­ally no dif­fer­ent to run­ning a school!

“Peo­ple don’t have to man their own stalls, they can come in once a week and change things around – they’re wel­come to be here, of course, but if peo­ple have young kids, are look­ing af­ter fam­ily mem­bers, or maybe need to be at home, this means they can have a stall here.”

Across dozens of stands, shop­pers can pick up vin­tage fash­ions from the last cen­tury – for both sexes, from dresses and heels to bow ties and leather boots – as well as home fur­nish­ings, hand­bags, lug­gage, kitchena­lia, or­na­ments, records and toys.

Gabrielle also has plans for a vin­tage-style kitchen and tea­rooms at one end of the mill, over­look­ing the park.

“Peo­ple are al­ready com­ing up from Lon­don to buy vin­tage here,” Gabrielle en­thuses about how soon word has got out. “This is the only thing like it in the north.”
