The Lakes and the Ladies that Tea

Hello there! And thank you to all our new followers; so lovely to know that we have some fellow vintage vixens out there!  We’ve had a busy few months but crazy to think that our last post was back in Oct!  HOW TIME FLIES! 

Butler and Taylor – our new business hiring out vintage tableware (which you can read more about here) has been bubbling away over the past months with logo design, website prep and our vintage tea sets have even had a few outings over the past months.

Interestingly, two of these outings were just over the border in The Lakes; The first of which was at a new vintage tinged Fayre at Rheged called Nostalgia Meets Design, (which you may remember from this post) and the second for a hire for a 50th vintage tinged Birthday Tea Party.

Now let’s be honest; Nostalgia Meets Design was as much an excuse for us to have first dibs on some of the amazing vintage items for sale as it was a justifiable business reason for Butler and Taylor to talk about tea, vintage china and cakes all day.

And although we were south of the border, we were pleasantly surprised that our stall neighbour was Hannah Louise Lamb Jewellery from Edinburgh.

Her items were lovely and we hope to be bumping into her soon, as the banter was a flowing!  We hope our partners will be familiarising themselves with her store as we’ve definitely been dropping hints to them where to buy some precious wares!  Seriously stunning stuff!

Other people who we were delighted came said hi to us (and we do hope to see north of the border soon) was vintage crafter and Made in the Shade buddy Leah Halliday, whose blog we recommend: Click here for her “I need that for my home” items and crafty goodness.

We were so excited by the enthusiasm about our vintage hire business from everyone, so thank you (and looking forward to potential bride and photoshoot/prop opportunities!)  Fingers crossed for another Nostalgia Meets Design next year.  Worth the scenic drive (and cake), for sure!

A week later, we were so proud to be hiring our wares for a lady to create her own vintage themed 50th birthday.  The settings looked super and we thought you’d like a little sneak peak at the tables she set and the guests adorning their favourite vintage wardrobe!
