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?

Q: Hi! I am interested in gifting this to my daughter, but she only drinks decaffeinated teas. Is this something that you can customize and keep track of easily?Asked by Wendy B., August 2021

Vintage Teatime - Eat, Drink, Read & Keep answered...August 2021

Hello Wendy, that's fine, I can customise the bundle of teabags for your daughter. I'm already doing a decaff bundle for one of my ladies so making 2 bundles isn't a problem
Regards, Gillian

This is absolutely THE box I most look forward to receiving! Packaging and shipping has been super awesome - I live on the other side of the planet on a tiny island in the central Pacific Ocean, and every item in every box has arrived in pristine condition. Words cannot describe how lovely the china is - very special. The books are unique and great reads, and the 'posh biscuits' and extra treats have been wonderful. Oh and the tea varieties are unique and fabulous too - every one has been a flavor or brand I've never tried (or even seen) before. Gillian is a brilliant hostess/curator and so helpful if you have a question. You cannot go wrong with this subscription!

One of my Favorite Boxes!

Likely one of if not my favorite box! I love that the owner is personal- with emails about her home and her country as well as quick updates and personal touches. The pictures alone say it all- the chocolate was divine! The soap- I LOVE! and obviously the china tea set is just lovely! Every little goodie, the book and the china set was perfect!

Perfect for a relaxing afternoon tea.

The box itself was slightly battered but the absolutely lovely china set inside made it to the other side of the world without a scratch.
The china is so beautiful I just couldn’t resist immediately using it for a nice afternoon tea with the ginger biscuits (after a quick wash of course). My little teapot doesn’t quite match the vintage set but luckily the tablecloth did.

I received my first Vintage Teatime today. It arrived faster than expected and packed with extra care to make sure all the treasures arrived in perfect condition. The vintage china was perfectly styled for one of my favorite reading nooks. I'm looking forward to enjoying the lovely variety of teas and the biscuits look tasty too. I am sure to enjoy them all while I read the book "Happy" that is sure to cheer and advise in this uncertain time. Bonus candies and tea bag/spoon rest will be enjoyed as well.
I highly recommend this box and will anxiously await my next Vintage Teatime.

Lovely experience

The box was a lovely experience and you could tell it was put together with care. The china was beautiful and the book has been great so far, I loved the little touches like the Wispa, the mints and the toffees in the china and the kettle shaped small dish- the biscuits were delicious too! Overall an amazing box, I would definitely look at buying it again when I can.

Vintage teatime will bring you joy!

A fantastic first impression for my experience with Cratejoy. Vintage Teatime was exactly what I hoped for and more!
Gillian is so sweet and curated such lovely items. She was very communicative and an absolute joy!
If I had space in my home to continue with this subscription forever I would, hopefully I will be able to reactivate at some point ;) I’m saving up for a tea chest to store all my cups and accessories.
The tea cup sets are stunning! The teas and biscuits are delicious as well as some new discoveries for me! The books are fascinating and the bonus surprise gift is the icing on top!
For bonus gifts across 3 months I received:
-the coasters in the image in my first box
-a floral teapot-shaped dish that I use for my teabags after use
-a stationary set

I am thrilled with my first box and excited to see the next. What my photograph doesn't show is the lovely spoon rest that my daughter pinched as soon as I opened it!

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.
