About Sunday Best Vintage

A little bit about us and the inspiration behind what we do...

We are a Mum and Daughter team with a wealth of Catering and Hospitality experience, and a keen commitment to exceed our customers’ expectations.

Qualified in Catering, experiences include being presented to her majesty the Queen when serving at one of the three Royal Garden Parties hosted by HM the Queen each summer  and several other prestigious and high society events such as an evening Garden party held at Lord Mountbatten’s home[Broadlands], Windsor Polo and The London Guildhall. My daughter worked for Swallow Hotels for many years, and so too the home of Durham County Cricket, organising weddings and corporate hospitality events, currently lecturing in Hospitality and Customer Service for a local college, she also enjoys baking the most scrumptious afternoon teas.

Inspired by the love of all things vintage, we source china, linen and tableware and give each beautiful piece a new reincarnation with people who have the same appreciation. Vintage pieces seem to beckon us to take them home, and we do!…all 300 or more tea place settings, and the family is still growing! Lovingly cared for, they are just waiting in the china cabinet for someone to treat themselves once again to their use and bring nostalgia to the experience of dining.

Remember when the best china was saved for Sunday’s? We invite you to use the best china any day of the week!

Sundays were for taking time off work to rest and rejuvenate. People got dressed up in their ‘Sunday Best’ clothes, ate the best Sunday Roast and had afternoon tea, using the ‘Sunday best ‘china. Tea service included the best homemade sandwiches, cakes ,scones, jam and cream and the simple pleasures of sipping tea from a china cup, the smell of old English roses and the taste of the homemade fare replenished the soul for the week ahead.

Simple pleasures in simple abundance!
