Q: Hi, do you deliver to the U.S.? thanksAsked by Maryanne C., December 2022

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

Hello Maryanne, Yes I send the boxes worldwide and most of my ladies are in the USA. There is free delivery for UK customers but I'm afraid that I can't offer this for overseas orders. The price if shipping will depend on which box you choose (Petite, Classic or Enhanced) but when you put your address in the checkout you'll see how much it is. Kindly, Gillian


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!


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


Q: If the subscription is a gift going to Ireland, would the shipping cost more than coming to the US?Asked by Cynthia D., February 2021

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

Hello Cynthia, if the address is in Northern Ireland the delivery charge is £2·50 and if it's in Eire it will be £9 for the Petite box or £12 for the Classic and Enhanced boxes.

I absolutely love these boxes the tea sets are beautiful, I enjoy trying the tea always fun to try flavors I would probably not buy on my own.
The books are always fun to read and the biscuits are very yummy. The tea set in my July box is decorated with forget me not which I love. I definitely recommend this monthly box!

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!

Fun for tea lovers

I got this crate for my friend in Ireland. She received it super fast and enjoyed the treats that came along with the book, tea and set. She is really looking forward to her next box.

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. :)

Best subscription ever!!

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

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
