Welcome to The China Library, a husband and wife team who have a slight obsession for all things vintage and fabulous. We have been collecting and sourcing finds for a very long time from house sales, auctions, boot sales, charity shops and across the pond. We have a huge and growing range of vintage bone china (up to 250 full place settings can be supplied), charming cake stands and gorgeous glassware to name but a few. We have old suitcases, picnic baskets, chalkboards, vintage bikes, rustic ladders, gramophones, sewing machines and vintage inspired lighting.
If you are looking for an on trend vintage wedding or stylish family event, we would be delighted to help. However, large or small, we have no minimum hire charge. Items can be hired individually but we also have featured packages that suit your budget and/or theme. We also offer on the day co-ordination and installation service.
We truly understand the desire to make your day very special, and being able to supply stunning décor at an economical cost makes what we do very enjoyable.
Our collection works beautifully for a wide range of events – weddings, hen parties, baby showers, garden parties, anniversaries, mini festivals and afternoon tea parties. We hire our supplies to brides, wedding planners, stylists, caterers and event companies.
We are based in Cardiff but we’re happy to travel a little further if needed.
We would be delighted to discuss your event and help provide the perfect look for your special event.
