Q: Hi Do you know when you will have these in stock. My mom would LOVE this !!Asked by Donna L., April 2020

Hi Donna, I'm the merchant. I'm still having problems getting all the parts of the boxes due to the lockdown. All the places I used to go to for china, books, biscuits and even the boxes have all closed so I'm sourcing new supplies. I'm waiting for a few deliveries to arrive and then I can open up again but with limited stock. Regards Gillian

by Gillian M., April 2020

I just placed my order ! Thanks so much for creating this box.

Hello Keasha,
I'm with you on the teacups obsession!
This subscription isn't closed, are you having problems making an order?
Regards, Gillian

I am! For some reason it keeps saying "Sold Out"? But I will try and purchase one anyways. I just didn't want to purchase and not get it. lol. I've done that with another box a while back and never got it. :( But your's looks so lovely!!

Hello Cindy, I'm now able to add some stock to the page and I'll have them up and running later today. There will be just a few available.

Q: I love to collect teacups that were made around the 1960's and older (the exception being if a newer cup is too pretty to pass up). So I was wondering what the typical age of the teacups are?Asked by Cheye H., April 2022

Vintage Teatime - Eat, Drink, Read & Keep answered...April 2022

Hello Cheye, thank you for your question. My china sets are all typically 1960's to 1970's but are not 'of that period' in terms of the modern style of that period. For example my 1960's sets are not in pop art or 'Swinging London Carnaby Street' high fashion style, they are classics that anyone would like and would have been suitable to be given as wedding presents. They are all English designs, made in England in the 5 towns in Staffordshire where all the big pottery factories are/were. If you take a look at my photos and also ones uploaded by my subscribers you'll get a better idea. I hope this helps!

Really thoughtful and beautiful set and items. Nice to set up for a calming moment for yourself. This box has items you can’t get in the Midwest of America. Really nice to spoil yourself with some proper tea and a treat like crumpets.

Like a parcel from a far away loved one!

Thank you so much, Gillian, for all of your newsletters that made me feel less alone and more connected to people and the world again; thank you for the wonderfully, individually packaged things that made me feel like I was opening a bunch of surprises from a friend (which I feel like you are now, after 5 months of boxes!); thank you for extra carefully wrapping all the beautifully curated teatime china that traveled half the globe to get to me (and for the surprise candies inside each teacup!); and, most of all, thank you for all of your dedicated and hard work in putting together and creating such delightful boxes that feel more like care-packages from a distant family member! I have enjoyed everything, immensely. Keep up the lovely work you are doing!

This is seriously the most adorable and quaint subscription box I've ever received. The tea cup (with matching plates), book, tea, and biscuits are perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. It's clear this subscription box was curated with love and care. I would highly recommend to anyone who loves tea and books. :)

I bought this for my daughter for Christmas as a Christmas gift and boy did she glow when she opened it she loved it I will continue on with the subscription for her. She loved everything about it she’s an old soul. She loved the food she loved the cups she loved the book everything was suited for her and it fit her personality so well the designs on the cup it’s like the person who put the box together knew my daughter this was the best subscription box that ever came. My daughter is only 14 years old and like I said she’s an old soul

As a someone who is both tea and vintage obsessed, I was delighted to discover this subscription box. It arrived in record time, despite all the delays with the pandemic and inside was a little vintage tea party! It included a gorgeous vintage tea cup, saucer with matching plate, a lovely book, a little collection of teas, and even vegan cookies--which I would show you but I have eaten them all. All this in addition to a little surprise of adorable coasters. I have had a lot of boxes and this is indeed one of the most beautiful to date. If you enjoy tea, anything vintage, or simply want a treat for yourself or someone you care about, I would encourage you to share this delightful vintage tea party in a box. It is a real treasure!
