The Emporium

A carefully curated vintage emporium and tea rooms with over 50 traders selling antiques, vintage, fashion, art, curiosities & furniture.

Launched in May 2014, the Bournemouth Vintage Emporium set out to be unlike any other multi-unit shopping experience. Owner Graham Spridgeon, (with the creative input of stylist and vintage boutique owner Dolly Grainger) designed a brand that offered a highly stylized, classy alternative, that housed a plethora of traders selling genuine stock. With reference to institutions such as Selfridges, Liberty’s, Biba and a distinct ‘department store’ feel.

Complete with an open courtyard, outdoor seating, free parking, toilets, changing rooms and a styled Victorian inspired tea room parlour, the Emporium paid attention to details like layout, light, colour, interior and visual merchandising to offer both customers, staff and traders a unique and high quality antique and vintage arena in which to thrive.

National magazines soon recognised this, and in its first year, the Emporium has featured heavily in vintage publications, blogs and even got the seal of approval from vintage industry heavyweight Wayne Hemingway. The business has also caught the attention of the BBC with a documentary filmed on site, with prop buyers also frequenting the establishment.


But don’t take our word for it! Come and see for yourself…..
