About

Years of vintage fun

I started this business with our own personal collection of china. I had collected for several years when my family moved to the Lake District in the UK and a big old house needed decorating. After many years we eventually moved to South Africa where I continued to enjoy trawling around searching out cups and saucers, dishes, wall plates anything really that I thought was pretty. That was key to the collection, it had to be attractive to the eye.
A Royal Winton corner, a shelf full of Susy Cooper, our dresser adorned with Shelley. The odd wall decorated with plates.
A lot of my collection has been sent all over the world and it pleases me to think pieces have a new owner and will continue to be cherished.
Buying carefully new chosen pieces is great fun especially now my other half joins in enjoys the thrill of finding beautiful pieces.
I am loving what I do and thrilled that I can give pleasure whether you buy or just enjoy a browse.

    Ships Worldwide. I have had a love of pretty china for years. As a child I was often late for school as I would stop on the way to look around an old antique/junk shop. To this day, I enjoy browsing around antique shops and vintage fairs.
