We really enjoy blogging about our exhibitors, especially when they’ve not exhibited with us before. We like to get to know them and what they do. Equally interesting is why they started their vintage inspired business!
We caught up with Linda who is the owner and founder of Pollyanna Vintage, a lovely vintage hire business based in the Staffordshire countryside with an enviable stock of props, bunting, games, china and table decor.
We asked Linda why she loves vintage and how her business started.
“Well, vintage is just an integral part of whom I am and where I’ve come from. The influences of my childhood are memories of afternoon teas and dinners with beautiful china; not that I was participating, my father was the local game keeper so I was a total observer !! The impact though was very special and lasting.
I am fascinated by the history of these delicate fabulous pieces…. who owned and used them? Were they in a stately home or the ‘best’ china in a humble home ? Amazing they have survived. My favourite era is probably the early 1900’s for china; the quality of fine bone English china (made in Staffordshire of course!) is unbeatable. That said I collect so many different and quirky things from all ages….my latest is 1950’s baking, totally wonderful.
So, this really underpins why Pollyanna Vintage was born to share all this loveliness with those couples so in love with each other and of course vintage. My passion, creative flair and love of weddings are the perfect mix to ensure that special, unforgettable day is the most memorable day for you and all of your guests. From china hire to cutlery, table linen to decorations, props to vintage games Pollyanna has everything for a totally vintage wedding or just a hint of vintage; put this together with my bespoke wedding planning service and you have the total package. “
We’re super excited about Pollyanna Vintage exhibiting with us on 22nd September – in the meantime have a browse round their website! www.pollyannavintage.co.uk
