All china hire includes the free hire of beautiful fabric bunting to use to dress you party.

The hire period is for 3 days: the day of the event plus one day either side for delivery and collection. If you wish to view the items before hiring you are welcome to visit us in our shop, viewings are by appointment only.

Delivery and collection are charged extra; please contact us to get a specific amount. We try to keep charges to a minimum, however you are welcome to collect and drop of your china yourself to avoid the charges. You don’t need to worry about the washing up, we will collect the china used and wash it ourselves – all included in the price. The items are not dishwasher safe and any breakages will be charged at cost price. A 50% deposit will be required 7 days before the event.

Due to the nature of vintage crockery, it may show signs of wear e.g. the gilt may have worn away in places. This is inevitable due to its age and delicacy.
