Forest Holme Hospice is getting ready to share The Secret Wardrobe, its new vintage boutique with shoppers on Saturday October 20.

Located on the first floor of the Dolphin Shopping Centre in Poole, Forest Holme Hospice is inviting the public to view a very special unveiling of the shop – all will be revealed at 11:45am on Saturday.


The Secret Wardrobe will sell pre-loved vintage clothes, art deco jewellery and shabby-chic furniture. All the proceeds from the store will go to the Poole hospice, which cares for patients with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

Diane Platt, charity manager at Forest Holme Hospice, says: “We are very excited to be opening the doors of The Secret Wardrobe to shoppers this Saturday. It has taken a lot of hard work and dedication from many people, but we are delighted with the results and are sure the shop will be a hit with fashionistas across the conurbation.

“Come along on Saturday morning to meet the team, browse our collection and share in our little surprise.”

To thank all of its supporters the shop will host an exclusive, invite-only, VIP preview on Friday evening. The shop will be open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5.30pm.

The Big Yellow Self Storage Company on Nuffield Road is still accepting donations of vintage items on behalf of Forest Holme Hospice. Free parking is available for visitors who would like to drop off their donations.
