About Magpie Crockery

About Magpie...

Magpie is run by me, Helen. I’ve loved anything antique, vintage and beautiful for as long as I can remember. It started with a love of rock and roll music, 1950’s fashion and jive clubs, and when I moved out of London, I became a fan of trawling antiques fairs and shops at the weekends. I used to buy and sell vintage clothes and homewares (and also keep a lot too!) and when we bought an Edwardian house in 2007, I then had the perfect excuse to buy the much older antique furniture, chandeliers and accessories I had loved for years. After a few years of building up a collection of beautiful vintage crockery, I started Magpie to share my collection with anyone who wants a vintage look at their wedding, party or event.

My work experience is in journalism, events, marketing and communications, and I have 16 years experience in these fields, so am used to the pressures of event management, organising the perfect party and meeting tight deadlines! Magpie is a dream come true for me – working with the antiques I’m passionate about in the field of work I enjoy and have experience in, so I hope I can offer this experience along with the hire of my lovely collection.

I live in Peterborough with my husband (who on one of our first dates sheepishly said he likes going to car boot fairs, so I married him), and our little boy and baby twins. We have a dog, two chickens and a house full of all the treasures we’ve found over the years.

To see some of the collection, visit the gallery. For ideas, visit inspiration or if you just want to have a chat, give me a call.
