It’s our second Birthday and Wow – THANK YOU – it’s been two great years for Virginias Vintage Hire! We have been honoured to have worked with and meet so many amazing people in what has proved to be a whirlwind of a year!
Highlights include supplying products for a couple of TV productions, The Great British Budget Menu, The Fixer with Alex Polizzi, helping out great brands with window and shop displays – Grenson Shoes, Chatham Marine, Timberland and Schuh, our chairs, benches and tables have partied and dined with Isabel Marant, Pearl Lowe, Jo Wood and even took a trip to Ibiza to hang out at the pop-up Groucho Club. We supplied to the huge St George’s Day Feast in Trafalgar Square last April (and will back in 2014!), had a feature in Ideal Home Magazine and supplied our products to an array of amazing, unique weddings and parties as well as photo shoots, festivals, theatre productions and more!
The worst moments – let’s be truthful here – early starts and late nights delivering orders all over the country. From London to Oxford, Gloucester, Bristol, Birmingham, Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Cornwall….doing our very best to keep the smiles on our faces. Loading and unloading, back-ache, broken down vehicles, those groaning moments when you think you’ve left something behind and you’re 300 miles from base…BUT we truly enjoyed working with everyone we met, you have helped us achieve a dream and for that, we are most grateful.
More highlights took us into 2014 – a total rebrand and launch of our new website, if you haven’t taken a look recently check it out here and being nominated as finalists in the West Country Wedding Awards pretty much rounded off year No 2.
So what do we want for our birthday? Just to continue to grow and to work with more amazing people – new and returning customers, individuals, families, event planners, marquee & catering companies, TV peeps, festival dudes, the theatre crowd, party people, fashion folk, the hoi polloi, the person in the street, YOU!
Our year ahead promises to be even better – new website, new stock, more bookings than ever. Thank you for taking the time to read – it was so nice talking with you and thank you for sharing our birthday with us. Thanks again Ginny and Greg
