Join me as we tour Dairy House Antiques, located nearby Shaftesbury England in Dorset.  But you’d better pack  your mittens and muffler!! Or perhaps pick up a vintage fur coat to keep your tootsies warm!

Dairy House Antiques is located in a former dairy and the original purpose of the building was to keep the milk cool before it set off on it’s journey to London.  The charming building today is covered with beautiful black & white tiles and houses a gorgeous collection of flea market style English and continental vintage pieces and antiques at incredible prices!

Even the front porch of the old dairy was cosy and inviting… welcoming us with a plethora of pieces!

While the interior of the shop was surprisingly modern at times!

An array of English wooden English pieces filled the upstairs.

There were even a few French pieces that were pure perfection!

I loved their quaint collections of Blue & White pieces.

My biggest temptation? This selection of gorgeous crystal and cut glass decanters, all of which were smaller than you’d typically find in Europe.

  • So good to see photos of this lovely place. I’ve not been for a visit in a while and must go there again …Soooon! Jane ( The Eccentric English Booklady)

  • I love the Dairy House and you are right, the contents and building are wonderful. I have to drive 2.5 hours to visit but it is really worth it. I am lucky enough to have a stand at the Textile Fairs that are also held there. A great place to visit.

  • Toma, thank you so much for this lovely tour of Dairy House. I’m sorry I wasn’t there the day you visited, but hope I’ll meet you next time. I’m glad you enjoyed it, even if it was somewhat chilly!
