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: 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
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 there! I was really hoping to get this subscription for my sister's birthday but it says sold out! Do you know when you will be able to sell more?Asked by Elizabeth W., December 2021
Hello Elizabeth, I've had a busier December than I expected so I've run out of some of the components of the box. I'll be able to offer the box as soon as I've re-stocked. Can I ask when the birthday is?
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!
Loved my box! It was fun opening the little packages and I love my teacup!
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.
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!
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. :)
Love love love!! Totally worth every penny!! Can’t wait til next month!!!
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
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
Just wish it were not international for me. It took longer because of the pandemic. But everything arrive perfectly. Thanks
