Take a peek at the enchanting Emporium...

There's nowhere better to go for a taste of true Britain than the capital itself, London. This week the Vintage Twee girls are united in the leafy suburb of East Finchley, north London to promote our products to the greatest tea lover of all... Her Majesty the Queen! Well, ok, maybe we haven't quite gotten to Buckingham Palace just yet, but we're sure if we did Her Royal Highness would love the ethos behind our work- unique, vintage and providing something special to decorate even the most prestigious of tables!

In our search for the perfect place to launch Vintage Twee south of the border, Joanne visited the very welcoming Lucinda Cooper and Helen Hodge, owners of the Emporium Tea Rooms, close to the beautiful Muswell Hill. The Emporium Tea Rooms is an astounding and nostalgic step back in time to a place where the tea is sipped, homemade cakes are on offer, and the atmosphere is entirely retro! As well as serving delicious food and drinks, classes and parties are on offer for both adults and children and encompass a range of the most fantastic ways to spend your days that we can think of! Events such as the “Storytelling and Pudding Evening” and “Traditional Afternoon Tea” party packages are available, not to mention indulging in crafts such as knitting, painting and crocheting! There's even an option for the Hen Parties- fancy group tuition in cupcake decorating complete with a Strawberry Cream Tea? Lets face it, who doesn't? Then contact the team and book yourselves in for some guaranteed giggles and gorgeous girly fun.
 The ladies wholeheartedly support local talent and sell handcrafted jams, sweets, toddler clothing and toys – most of which have been made by the craftspeople of the surrounding areas. Joanne took along a selection of our goods and we are now pleased to announce that Emporium Tea Rooms are official stockists of our popular Tea Bag Holders, Eat Me Party Picks, Recipe Cards and. Tea Pot Gift Boxes! A visit to the Emporium is an absolute must whether you live in London or not so don't miss out on this fabulous little gem of a shop!!


  1. Hi I found your link on Our New Life in the Country blog, owned by Sue.

    How wonderful too see your post about the Emporium Tea Rooms. I did a post about them in January this year. I saw them in a magazine, and went for a visit.. as my mother-in-law lives near by.


    how wonderful for you that you found them and they now stock your goods :-)

  2. Hi Anne,
    Thank you for your lovely comments! The Emporium Tea Room really is amazing, we loved it! We're hoping that the customers of Muswell Hill, East Finchley and beyond love our products and keep going back for more! : )
