Beautiful teapots and exquisite teacups are something we are very familiar with at Tea with Rosie, however if we are going to hire out enough for christenings and weddings we needed to stock up!
So before we could do anything we needed to get scouring all the vintage shops, charity shops, car boots, eBay and asking friends and family to search their attics and garages for unwanted china.
We started off with a few pretty sets and before we knew it we had dozens of teacups and plates filling our spare rooms. I personally got slightly addicted to eBay and was fascinated by the price some tea trios went for. I am not an expert but am slowly understanding what is what in the crockery world.
However while we have been building our stock we have kept one thing in mind at all times, it had to be authentic vintage, it had to have a certain look and style and we certainly wouldn’t accept any old teacup!
We have picked only the best, the result is a plethora of truly gorgeous vintage bone china crockery, beautiful cutlery and sweet embroidered table linen. And it’s all waiting for you and your guests 😉
