What could be nicer than to relax with tea, biscuits and a brand new book? Take it to the next level with a pretty vintage china tea cup, saucer and plate that you'll want to build into an eclectic collection of vintage china for afternoon tea. Each subscription box contains an extra gift to complement the vintage teatime theme.
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
I just placed my order ! Thanks so much for creating this box.
Q: When will this box be back? I'd really like to start a subscription!! I'm seriously obsessed with teacups!! Asked by Keasha N., February 2020
I'm with you on the teacups obsession!
This subscription isn't closed, are you having problems making an order?
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!!
Q: Do you have a list that you are keeping for persons interested in subscriptions. If so I would like to be on that list and notified when you have stock and continue taking subscriptions. Cindy Asked by Cindy M., May 2020
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: Hi! I am literally dying to subscribe to your box! However the shipping is SO much. Also, I’m a military wife and loved the military wives book, is that something you do often!!? Thank you! Asked by Priscilla J., October 2020
Thank you for your message. I'm afraid that the shipping really is that amount. It used to be 50% less but the US Administration increased the amount that they charge for 'the last mile' of the delivery for incoming overseas mail in July. The books are very random so who knows what's in the next box?
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!
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!
Love love love!! Totally worth every penny!! Can’t wait til next month!!!
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.
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.
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!
I loooove my teatime box! I love my teacup, teas, biscuits, book and teabag rest. It’s so obvious every item was selected with great care. My Sunday morning tea and biscuits never tasted so good! ☺️
Just wish it were not international for me. It took longer because of the pandemic. But everything arrive perfectly. Thanks
