MORE than 80 traders are setting up stalls at a new vintage market in Salisbury, boasting vinyls, books, clothes and more.

The Phoenix Emporium on Tollgate Road will be opening its doors this weekend with a special launch event.

The team behind the venture include husband and wife, and memorabilia and antique enthusiasts, Chrissie and Jules Aplin, alongside Ryan Dodds and Mallory Grace.

In the lead up to the opening Jules said he was “terrified but excited”, and described the emporium as a “big market place”.

He added: “From records and comics to clothes, bags and modern collectibles, there is a wealth of stuff here which is just fascinating, you never really know what’s going to be in here.

“There is something for everyone, and it will be changing year-round.”

Having such a big space the team wants to use the site to host functions including vintage fairs and fundraising events, with proceeds going to local charities. Additionally a percentage of the rent paid by traders will be donated to the same causes.

As well as a variety of stalls there will be a cafe and courtyard on site.

“There is going to be so much creativity under one roof, it will feel like a day out,” Jules added.

The site was previously Molly’s Den, which went into liquidation earlier this year.

The Phoenix Emporium will be opened by Mayor of Salisbury John Walsh on Saturday at 9.30am, followed by a vintage sale and then a charity clothes sale on Sunday.

This event will be supporting the team’s first nominated charity, VieNess Discover You Love You CIC. As part of the grand opening there will also be live music, workshop showcases and prize giveaways.
