Boutique Village Outing

Eight members came to the Boutique Village at Third Avenue Millbrook on 8th January  to sketch some of the items on display. It is a large industrial building  containing small exhibition compartments which are rented by different sellers. There are antiques, shabby chic home wares, clothing, crafts  and collectables - many displayed with great flair. The village traders  have a programme of activities over the next three months - including craft workshops.

See the Events page on their website:!events/ci7x

 We enjoyed a natter in the cafe (they call it tea rooms in their brochure) for the last hour  and there was plenty of space to sit together. The group is now meeting regularly on the morning of the second Friday in the month, so the next outing will be at 10.30 a.m. on the 12th February.
