  • I am a passionate entrepreneur based in rural Staffordshire. My journey started in 2007 when I trained as a chef and hospitality supervisor at Stafford College, following this my education led me to Harper Adams University where I followed a programme of Agricultural Marketing and business studies to gain my foundation degree.

My love of vintage started as a hobby selling vintage china and collectables at events around the county over six years ago whilst at university. In 2014 I decided to take a leap of faith and become self employed and set up my business Lily’s secret vintage tearoom. I have been able to draw upon my skills in small business, food preparation, creativity and organisation together with my ethos of good food and authenticity to create the brand.

My business has evolved hugely since its launch and our outside catering arm and pop-up tearoom on tour has seen us work with clients including the RAF, Three Peaks Shopping Village, Blondies Vintage Events and many more private clients for parties, weddings and christenings.
