The Vintage Dove is a family run business based in Gillingham, Kent. A home interiors shop with a coffee corner.We specialise in Vintage furniture in the French Shabby Chic style. All of our vintage finds are one offs sourced from various places across the country. We really love what we do and get great satisfaction from breathing life back into once loved furniture. Older furniture always seems to be of a much better quality than modern pieces and upcycling and reusing them is also helping the environment. We have a lovely selection of home interiors, gifts, and cards. We are very proud to be a stockist of Autentico Chalk Paint and Jeanne d'Arc Living Magazine. Yo can also learn how to paint furniture using the Autentico range of products on one of our workshops. Please visit our website for more information.
