Kate and Sidney Pie's Profile

About

Somewhere between the 1980's and a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away lies Mornington Crescent.


ABOUT KATE AND SIDNEY:
We asked our 6-yr-old son to describe us and his answer was: "cuddly, kissy and tickle-fighty."

Amongst other things, for us being British is all about:
Morris dancing; Cornish cream teas; Pub gardens; Cider; Only knowing the first verse of God Save the Queen; Being awfully proud of the BBC, even when it's crap; Being awfully proud of the NHS, even when it's crap; Sort of successfully being English while also being British at the same time; Compromising on whether rugby is better than football (the soccer kind, obviously) and constantly having a Monty Python or Douglas Adams quote for every conceivable situation…

ABOUT MORNINGTON CRESCENT VINTAGE:
We sell vintage and antique collectibles and curiosities from our journeys around the British Isles. We love matching pre-loved and unwanted items with new owners and in doing so also fighting throw-away society one sale at a time!


PHILOSOPHY AND ETHICS:
We're really into recycling and reusing and try to incorporate that philosophy into all aspects of our lives. We make-do-and-mend, do-it-ourselves and grow-our-own. We basically just try to be as environmentally and pocket-friendly as possible.

We believe passionately in giving and getting excellent, polite and professional customer service at all times and everywhere - and that includes our Etsy shop.


If you're ever nearby, please do drop round for a shot of our now infamous homemade blackcurrant vodka or sloe gin!

All the best,
Kate & Sidney Pie xx
