Home Proud: Vintage china

One of the larger plates I bought on Portobello road...the detailing on the sides is beautiful

I've always been obsessed with all things vintage, including vintage china and kitchenware.

There is something very cute about them and they really do fit into any household, whether shabby chic or modern cosy is your style. They remind me of Marie Antoinette and cakes and everything sweet, so I love to serve cookies or cake on my carefully selected plates.

You can find mismatched tea pots, cups and plates anywhere for a great price if you know where to look, so I thought I'd share some of my 'search spots' with you.

Rare and Racy
This lovely young seller buys her vintage finds in the West country and then sells them at a stand on Portobello Road on Fridays and Saturdays. She has the most beautiful cake stands (£15) and mismatched plates (£3). She also makes her own mismatched cake stands.

Portobello in general has a lot of choice with some sellers not specializing in china that will have cheap prices.

Good old eBay - you can pretty much find everything here. From specific china designs from different eras, to cheap bargains like a 'lot' of plates (or bunch of plates). This is great if you are planning a party or want lots of china for your wedding.

Amazing selection of china for reasonable prices. I would recommend getting a better bargain at the markets but if you prefer to shop online then this is the place.

The China Girl on Etsy (Or Etsy in general!)
Really lovely selections of 'lots' of china plates, cups, etc.

Vintage Tableware Hire
There are a lot of companies that hire all sorts of vintage china for parties and weddings, and this can obviously prove to be a much cheaper option if you're looking to get them in bulk!
