Kate's passion for unique finds, started from an early age when she visited auctions, vintage markets and boot fairs with her Mum. "My Mum let me bid up to £20 for a Captains Chest at auction when I was eight years old. It was in every bedroom I had growing up and we still have it to this day. I much prefer a vintage piece of furniture and unique find to something new, although I like to mix it up with more modern pieces."
Kate set up one of the first vintage hire and styling companies in the UK, Vintage Style Hire, back in 2011 and sourced some interesting pieces of furniture and props. The shop seemed a natural progression. "So many people asked me if they could buy the pieces they hired, so I thought, why not?"
Kate opened the shop in the Autumn of 2016 and was joined by her husband, Jonathan, three years later when he retired from the Fire Service. He is now our Barista at the Coffee Bar!
Amelia has now joined the team and we look forward to developing our shop online and keep you up to date with everything happening in and out of the shop.
