Our fee is the same for each type of crockery, no matter its age or style.

Although we try to source our crockery in perfect condition, a small amount of wear and tear is to be expected. Considering the age of many of our items we feel that this is only a sign of their character and history.

The hire fee is for the day of your event with collection (or delivery) on the day before and return (or collection) on the  day  after your event, unless otherwise agreed.

An additional charge of £0.50 per mile will apply for delivery and/or collection, plus tolls if applicable.

We do not charge for cleaning crockery. Due to its delicate nature, our crockery cannot be placed in any dishwashers and must be washed by hand with gentle detergents only. We only ask that you wipe everything down and place it back in the boxes provided.   

For bookings with a total cost of £50 or more, a deposit of 50% of the hire fee is required to secure your booking with the remainder of the fee payable on the day before collection (or delivery). For other bookings, the full hire fee will be required to secure your booking.

A refundable deposit against damage will also be required for every hire at 40% of the total hire cost, payable on the day before collection (or delivery). Deductions will only be made for damage or breakages and a full report will be provided.

We will hand-select the items for your event. If you have a particular colour scheme in mind (eg. for a baby shower) we will do our best to choose crockery to suit and will discuss the options with you.

Mismatching crockery will be supplied unless matching items are specifically requested. Cups, saucers and side/cake plates will be packed in separate boxes upon collection (or delivery).

Should you have any queries that aren't answered above, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
