A: We specialise in the hire and styling of genuine antique and vintage tableware – perfect for anyone looking to have their own vintage, retro or quirky celebration, high tea, wedding or any special event. All of our items are genuinely vintage, no reproductions and we do not bulk up our collection with too many items from the 80’s-90’s.
Q: Why did you start your own business?
A: I had been collecting vintage and second-hand items for most of my life, especially cup/saucer/plates, and also liked what the UK hirers of Vintage China businesses were doing.
Q: What’s been your biggest challenge so far?
A: If a person has their heart set on a particular business name, check to see if it is available both as a business name and a domain name. I registered both my business name and internet domain names years before I had the funds for my Website and FB site
Q: Any tips for other Startups?
A: A well-designed and functional website, Facebook, and business cards.
Q: What’s next for ‘Vintage China Hire?‘
A: Making our site responsive i.e; mobile and tablet friendly, and training in some new social media skills.
