A BOURNEMOUTH boutique shop has closed its doors after just a year of trading.

Here Comes the Sun, a vintage boutique store selling furniture, clothing and wacky antiques, is now closed.

The boutique took to social media to thank all the customers who had visited and kept the business going through hard times.

A statement from the shop on Facebook read: “I have an update I have been reluctant to make, but the time has come to say goodbye to this happy little shop.

“I have a few health issues which have led me to having to make the decision to close the shop on Christchurch Road.

“I would have loved to stay here forever, we really were welcomed into the street with open arms and have made some incredible friends since we opened the door last April.

“Thank you to each and every one of you who helped me get this off the ground with approximately £5 in the bank.

“To all the locals who stopped and chatted so kindly, to each and every wonderful

“I really feel blessed to have had such a great opportunity and such a friendly experience. This is not the end, just a sidestep.”

Here Comes The Sun was located at 1156 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth.
