Olive & Em is a unique website designed for all those who just adore anything
vintage. The site combines small scale vintage crockery hire with a blog
documenting the vintage passions of its creator Emily. By day Emily is a busy
and passionate secondary school teacher… However the bell goes (plus a
few hours later )and the vintage fun can begin.
My weekends are spent blissfully scouring markets, boot sales, vintage shops
and most importantly indulging my love of charity shops to uncover new items,
be they clothes, crockery, books, record or, home furnishings…Anything
which catches my eye, which is authentic and screams I have a story behind
me and I simply can not resist. I have had a love of vintage fashion for a while
now however it is only really in the past few years that it has started to take
over our house as well as my wardrobe.
The name Olive and Em was inspired by my great grandmother who adored
making things and being creative so in her memory and all the lovely things
she produced and all the hours she spent at craft fairs… Olive here’s to you
and your inspiration.
