Have you seen or bought one of our ‘What Alice Found’ vintage 2012 calendars yet?
We have had some great response so far since they came out two weeks ago, and thought we’d share some of the stories so far…
Awesome fashion blogger Joe Kent mentioned the calendar on his blog Unlimited by JK , and wrote an article for BH BEAT on our calendar antics!
Lovely blogger Karen gave us a mention on her blog ‘Make it, Save it, mend it’…
“We bought a fantastic charity calendar from the lovely girls at What Alice Found. This is sold in aid of the Wessex Autistic Society and is full of lovely vintage inspired piccies from in and around Bournemouth so do snap one up if you can.”
One lady bought a copy to send to her sister for Christmas, who moved from Bournemouth to New Zealand 2 years ago, so she had a calendar to remind her of home.
We also had a batch order for 14 calendars for a ladies organisation in Dorset !
And our fave story of all…. Lisa-Marie Lewis, the Westbourne based stylist who did all the hair and make up for the photos used our calendar as her showcase portfolio last week when she applied for a rather swanky job on a cruise ship – and got it! Hurrah! Good news all round really.

We’d like to introduce you to our newest range to join Wonderland – beautiful handmade jewellery from Natalie of ‘Follow The White Rabbit‘.
We didn’t hesitate for one second to stock this stunning and affordable selection in our boutique because it is what we are all about… these items are a fusion of new, found and vintage materials that give old and discarded objects a new lease of life.
Beautifully made – and no two items are the same, the theme Of ‘Alice’ is evident with tiny clocks, rabbits, coins, keys and watch parts.
Here in store you can choose from long pendants with tiny books and charms (£15) bird and clock necklaces (£12) upcycled watch rings (£8.50) Charm bracelets (£12) Love Heart rings (£3.50) and Love Heart necklaces (£4.50)
Great gift ideas for Christmas – or hey, they’re so pretty – treat yourself! We love this range and the work that has gone into giving discarded objects a new purpose, and it’s all so very Alice
You can but in store now, Find Follow The White Rabbit on Facebook, or visit their website for more pictures.
