We’ve seen hundreds of hire companies in our time – after all, that’s our business! But The Very Vintage Hire Company is one of the coolest, we have to say. Just a few clicks around their website and you’ll quickly see that they’re a fashionable bunch with some very cool design ideas – and the amount of stock that they hire out is astonishing.
The Story So Far
Despite their successes, Very Vintage actually started life as a university project in 2011. In 2009, founder Carmen was studying a degree in illustration and in her second year, started a small business selling handmade cake stands at fairs and markets with her pal Alex. Both mums, they juggled looking after their children with selling and crafting hundreds of cake stands. Juggling both soon became fairly difficult and in 2011, they had their first ever wedding booking after a couple bought a job lot of china for their special day. After trawling second hand shops, vintage fairs and markets for vintage china, they expanded their business to hiring out cool and quirky vintage china pieces. Since then, business has quite literally boomed – with a spot on the BBC show Be Your Own Boss and an editorial in Devon Life Magazine, the team has grown along with the business.
