Hello Lovely beginnings...

Welcome to Hello Lovely!

I use old vintage cutlery and turn it into gifts. Most of the cutlery dates from 1880 to 1970 and it's a great way to reuse and upcycle everyday objects into fantastic unusual gifts.

I Hand stamp everything myself in the old fashioned way (no whizzy machines here!) on a workbench my husband made me. It's a bit noisy all the hammerings and swear words when I hit my thumb, but my husband and the cat (Nuala) are used to it.

I love finding antique cutlery and turning it into something new, I have recently opened another shop on Etsy selling Vintage Cutlery Jewellery made from solid silver cutlery. You can find it at www.happyandgloriousco.etsy.co.uk.

Recently I found out that one of my ancestors was a cutler so it must run in the genes!

I do hope you love the shop and thanks for stopping by, please do take a peek at my facebook page at www.facebook.com/hellolovelyshop1 which also gives details of upcoming events.

Best wishes Allison x

Additional policies and FAQs
Ready Made or Made to Order?

I have many listings of individually photographed pieces that show you the exact piece you will receive. I also have have made-to-order listings which will vary depending on what patterns are in stock when you order. Please see individual listings for more details.

Please note I only stock vintage silverplate cutlery which is in good condition and perfectly useable. As all my items are truly vintage they may show signs of ageing which only adds to its charm.

I have a wide assortment of styles, so if you have a personal preference (plain or ornate for example), please let me know.

All my items are handstamped and wording looks rustic rather than machine made.

Care of Silverplate

Gently wash by hand, not in a dishwasher. They love a gentle polish every now and then. The black writing will fade over time, you can always replace with food colouring if desired.
