Hello Vintage was started by Katie, who was given her great grandmother's china by her father as a gift. Having always been interested in the old, the unusual and the charming, the business began by hiring china for wedding and parties. While we have now moved away from hire, we still marvel of the beauty of bone china and yes, her heirloom china is still enjoyed for afternoon tea. Over the past decade, we've spent our time honing our talents in hunting out treasures, from gloriously faded textiles to chic tableware, unique gifts and one-off pieces of furniture.
We source from brocantes in France, dealers hidden away in sleepy English towns and anywhere else we can find new treasures. Not only do we think that buying vintage and antiques can help you to create a unique and special home, we also recognise that buying pre-loved helps to minimise our contribution to the ever-growing waste in our society. Not to mention, of course, the fact that you're likely to be buying beauty at a far lower cost then buying new. What's not to love?!
We believe in seeing the beauty in imperfections and many of our items reflect this way of thinking. Alongside our vintage collections, you'll find hand crafted items sourced from across the UK and far beyond, as well as a small selection of decorative accessories and haberdashery. Essentially, we think that if we love it - there's a fair chance you will too.
As well as selling on our website and on Etsy we also attend a variety of fairs and events, a list of which can be found under fairs and events. We love meeting our customers and hearing about your beautiful homes, so if you are able to join us at an event, please say hello.
If you're looking for a specific item or have been inspired by our collections, please get in touch - our stock is ever changing and we are very happy to source specific items.
