Making and selling Forgotten China pieces has introduced me to some of the loveliest people! There's something about vintage china that really appeals to people and gets them talking, and I've been lucky to hear some wonderful stories at my weekly market stall.

Because each piece of Forgotten China is unique, each week at the market brings a new selection of stock and regular market goers like to stop by to see what I have for sale that day. Over time, I've got to know some of these people and I've been honoured to become their 'gift problem-solver', supplying them with unique pieces and thoughtful commissions to mark their friends' and families' birthdays, Christmases and other important events. I love meeting these people each week and I'm always dying to know how their gifts have been received!

My online shop has allowed me to meet new customers from across the world, and I get such a thrill in hearing that my pieces have arrived safely with their new owners.

Here's what just a few of my lovely customers have had to say about Forgotten China:

Feedback from Elizabeth as to how she “found” Forgotten China online…

I actually saw a couple of your necklaces and earrings at a store in Dublin. I don’t remember the name of the store, but it was in the shopping center near St. Stephen’s Green. I should have picked up a necklace then, because I had a hard time during my whole vacation finding souvenirs that weren’t cheap touristy trinkets - which, to me, are a shameful misrepresentation of the majesty and dignity of Irish culture. Anyway... I ended up coming home with almost no souvenirs. But I remembered your necklaces! Besides being gorgeous in their handmade, up-cycled concept, they reminded me of the bed and breakfast I stayed at for most of my trip, where beautiful china was hanging everywhere! And your logo and packaging are also beautiful and memorable (I’m a graphic designer, so I notice these things!). And the swans are a nice touch too - a reference to your name, I suppose? Well done overall.

— Cathy, Scotland.
