Vintage lovers invited to ‘Summer Solstice’ event

Summer vintage items

Emmaus Mossley is preparing for a special charity sale event on the summer solstice, Thursday 21 June.

Join us for a ‘Summer Solstice Vintage Sale’ on the longest day of the year. The summer themed event will include interesting vintage sale items, camping gear and festival wear, local craft artists, BBQ and live music.

“This year the summer solstice falls on Thursday 21 June and this seemed like a perfect time to stage an evening event with a festival feel. As well as lovely vintage items on sale in our Secondhand Superstore, we will also have stalls outdoors with an array of summer items, textiles, camping equipment and tents for sale, all in support of Emmaus Mossley.”

Hazel Hodkinson, Retail Manager at Emmaus Mossley 

The outdoor stalls will include a BBQ by Pattisons Family Butchers and local artisan baker Scona will be offering a selection of cream teas. There will also be a tepee containing a wide range of pre-loved clothes, fabrics and summer accessories.

Emmaus Mossley supports 26 formerly homeless people by providing them with a home and work in a community setting. The charity runs a social enterprise in Mossley, selling donated and upcycled furniture, household goods and vintage wares.

Companions – formerly homeless people who live and work at Emmaus – with staff and volunteers will handpick the best summer items and vintage pieces to create unique displays to present the best of what Emmaus Mossley has to offer.

“If previous events are anything to go by, this should be a fantastic evening for all who attend. Everyone who takes part has a great time and the atmosphere these events create is a testament to Emmaus and the wider community of Mossley.”

Gary Barton, companion at Emmaus Mossley 

The ‘Summer Solstice Vintage Sale’ event will take place on Thursday 21 June from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at Emmaus Mossley, Longlands Mill, Queen Street, Mossley OL5 9AH.
