About Mad Hatter

Time for tea shop.com

Hello ! my name is Andrew Barter and I am the proprietor of Timeforteashop.com, and Time for Tea , the physical pop up shop based in Tooting Market. I have a passion for vintage china, escpecially items associated with taking tea. I have a large collection of vintage china ware accumulated over many years of collecting and dealing at local Antique Fairs originally with my Mother, who passed away in 2007.

I have started “timeforteashop.com” to offer both sales and hire of quality vintage tea sets and associated items. I also offer a china matching service to enable you to replace cherished items from tea / dinner sets which are no longer available through mainstream retail outlets.
I look forward to assisting you in creating your unforgettable events in the future, please get in touch by phone or email me at madhatter@timeforteashop.com.

Our Range

We have a large range of quality vintage china produced by such potters as Paragon, Wedgewood, Doulton, Shelley, Tuscan and many more.

We can search for any pieces which you are missing from your cherished tea / Dinner set should it not be available from stock.
