Reminiscence Vintage

Purveyors of vintage loveliness


Have a look at some of the lovely things people have said about us...

Matlock Vintage and Handmade Fair

“Thank you for the lovely tea, cake and china at the fair today ... My three favourite things.” Nicola Dowell (Vintage Experience competition winner)

“I really enjoyed the day! And the cheese scones & lemon drizzle cake were scrumptious.”

“Even though I'm not much of a cake person, that lemony/orangey deliciousness is making me drool!”   :-) Dhun Silverstein.

“A fabulous experience was had by my friends and me at the Vintage Suitcase event. We were thoroughly spoilt by the Reminiscence Vintage ladies who we purchased our refreshments from. Tea, in the most divine crockery and cakes and scones, made by angels - fresh and delicious!! I would always be willing to sample future delights if they were providing the treats at another event.” Mrs Ruth Heath - Belper

Belper Arts Festival at No. 28

"I love the way No.28 was completely transformed. It was just like stepping back through the waves of time. As soon as you walked in you were guaranteed a big friendly welcome, a lovely cup of tea and cake that went way beyond delicious! A combination of fabulous, easy listening music and beautiful vintage decor came together to create a great relaxing atmosphere bursting with charm and old fashioned character."

“They were the best cheese scones I had ever tasted ! Ian went crazy about his small taste of my cheese scone! He made me laugh when he said he wanted to ask you for the recipe!” Marcela Flores

“Beautiful people, delicious cakes, fun times.” Bonnie Fourie

“There are many ways to view sumptuous pieces of art and ceramics but my favourite vista, by far, is looking at art while peering over a pile of freshly baked scones. It says something about my nature that my Belper Open House tour started at No. 28 - a pop-up café skilfully executed by Reminiscence Vintage - with me drooling over a Victoria sponge when my mind should have been on art-works.” Volley's Jollies on-line blog spot

“Hello! Thanks for letting us play at No. 28 the other day! The tea and cakes were lovely!” Laurie and Amy Illingworth

“Thank you – another gorgeous event. It’s lovely that what you are doing has such resonance for the whole town – you are bringing something very special to it. A summer’s afternoon with friends, tea and scones, and strains of the lovely Lily singing the classics…..fab!” Jennie W-B

Sweet 16

“The party was absolutely perfect for a 'sweet 16'. My daughter was blown away by how you decorated the room and the attention to detail was incredible. The food was delicious and it was great that you tailor made it to our tastes. The girls loved dressing up in the amazing vintage dresses. It was a lovely surprise and really fitted the theme of the party. We loved it, loved it, loved it! Hattie had one of her best birthdays ever. Thank you both” :-) Sarah

“Thank you so much for my fabulous vintage tea party. Everything was perfect and exceeded my expectations. I loved all the little details such as the personal place cards with ribbon. Thanks for helping to make my 16th birthday such a good one.” Hattie

Melbourne Vintage and Handmade Fair – Spring 2013

“I am so pleased you are going to come to our next fair at Ticknall! We all thought you did an absolutely lovely job on Sunday and created a wonderful atmosphere!” Deborah

“We love the attention to detail.” Customer at Reminiscence Vintage Pop-up Café

Quirky, Handmade and Vintage fair Melbourne March 2013

Mother's Day 2013

“We thoroughly enjoyed the whole event. The food was delightful & the ambience perfect . Thank you for such a super time.”

"We thought the event was lovely - you had planned everything so well, even down to taking the coats. The venue, music and decor created a warm atmosphere and the food and service were fantastic!"

"Was a lovely event, we enjoyed it! Really nice cakes!"

"It was a lovely event, I wouldn't change a thing!"

"The venue was spot on, tables were beautifully decorated with gorgeous china. We were looked after handsomely with attentive yet unobtrusive young ladies. The background music was at just the right pitch, just loud enough to be heard,but not to intrude on conversation. We were treated to very generous pieces of homemade cake and even provided with doggy bags to take un-eaten pieces home."

"Super afternoon! Gorgeous setting."

"We had a lovely relaxing afternoon with wonderful cakes."

"Yesterday afternoon's tea was delightful - thank you!"

"Thank you for a fantastic Mothers Day afternoon. My Mum loved it, and my daughter felt like a princess."

"Just wanted to let you know, we all thought the Reminiscence Vintage event on Mothers' Day was perfect down to the last detail; the atmosphere was just right, the cakes were amazing, and we really really enjoyed it! Also, we absolutely loved the live music and Lily and Amys' singing was truly beautiful. It all fitted together so well! :)"

“You are better than Chatsworth!”
