Hire - Wedding China Hire is our specialty.
Here we find
out about Viv and Terry's Retro China Hire business which
offers a full hire, delivery & collection service of vintage
china for any event, though with the focus primarily on
Viv & Terry of Retro China Hire
have been interested in china for many years. On retirement
from the health service, Terry started up an antiques &
collectables business selling pottery, porcelain, china, glass
metal ware & small items of furniture. Following an enquiry
regarding retro china hire for a wedding, we decided to stock
rather than sell tea & dinner china. The business has had a
successful couple of years since inception & we are looking
forward to expanding the business. We have also now set up a sales
for antiques & collectables.
We lived in the Stoke-on Trent
area and became fascinated by the history of the potteries. We
have always been keen on antiques & collectables, but
concentrated on china following that stay in Stoke.
Retro China Hire offers a full
hire, delivery & collection service of vintage china for any
event, but most of our business comes from weddings. Although
we supply & collect we are happy to assist the client in how
best to set up their venue by prior arrangement. We can supply
to the theatre & film industry as well as events companies.
Our shop in Swadlincote,
Derbyshire, is open Monday to Friday 10-4pm. We concentrate on
sales, but are happy to discuss wedding arrangements on site
with those interested in hiring from us. Our website offers
people the opportunity to browse a selection of our stock or
to place an enquiry.
Vintage & retro items are very
popular these days and the young are driving this interest for
things past. This interest is not only confined to my area of
interest, but across the board to include clothing &
jewellery. We are currently developing a line of retro/vintage
cufflinks. Our customers base mainly comes from young women
who know exactly what they want. We have been fortunate to
have good customer satisfaction and put this down to keeping
our customers well informed at all times as to their orders
and listening to their needs. We like to make the customer
feel that they are our only customer. Their wedding day is the
most important thing to them & we like to give a stress-free
service. Our service is personal, and being a small business we
and our clients feel this is an advantage. We have only just
opened a Facebook page and hope that this will encourage feedback
for all to see.
It gives us great satisfaction
to deliver our china to the client and see how pleased they
are when they see it set out.
As said previously, the business
is going from strength to strength, with expansion into other
areas of vintage & retro products. We will be participating in
wedding/events fairs around the midlands, so look out for us.
