This week on my 'Wonderful World of Etsy', I bring you Nancys Tea Shop. A UK based store on Etsy that is run by Rachel and her Mum Sharon, it is named after Rachel's grandmother Nancy, who loved fine china, tea and cake baking.
"The beginning of Nancy's Tea Shop was in a small selection of vintage plates, which I'd bought with the idea of making some cake stands for friends' birthdays. A week later, armed with my trusty drill, a special diamond tipped drill bit and some internet instructions, I made my first cake stands! .....and somehow got away with breaking only one plate. I gave some away as presents and some were used in my friends' vintage tea party wedding. One of these friends then suggested I sell the rest of the stands on Etsy. And the rest is history!"
They have a beautiful selection of Vintage tea sets, cake plates and tea pots in the prettiest pastels, girly florals and stylish fauna. They also have a great selection of Vintage linen, cutlery and glasses.
