About the Jolly Duck Bunting Co.
Tucked away in a tiny village in the Yorkshire Dales the Jolly Duck Bunting Co. grew from a love of creativity, sewing & a simply splendid 1950s Singer sewing machine...
Victoria was busily sewing away on her 1950s Singer, hand making bunting for family and friends & happily providing her collection of pretty china tea sets and cake stands to create an authentic vintage feel at their special events... Then, the phone began to ring, and ring and ring!
With requests from friends, of friends, of friends! for high quality, hand-made bunting in vintage floral fabrics, stripy seaside themes, sparkly shiny fabrics and even bunting appliqued with sheep!
It soon became clear that the 'Bunting Bug!' and love of English vintage china tea sets was spreading far & wide and Victoria had an idea... 'Perhaps I could develop this into a business...'
Pondering that sewing the same bunting over and over to sell would be, a little dull – Victoria decided that it would be much more interesting to produce a fabulous collection of bunting in different fabrics for folk to hire, whilst also offering the opportunity to purchase bunting using a bespoke design and production service.
It was hoped that offering both services would provide an ideal solution for event organisers requiring bunting to use at a one off event – and organisers with particular bunting design and fabric requirements, which can be used to decorate their future soirees.
For quite a while Victoria has also collected china tea sets and cake stands however unlike 'Aunty Flo', she doesn’t believe that china should be 'kept for best' but that we should all be able to enjoy the quintessentially English tradition of drinking tea from a china tea cup and saucer and the delightful experience of choosing cake from a stand, which is why she is happy to hire items from her vintage collection for special events.
Victoria's phone continued to ring with bunting orders & vintage china collection bookings so she decided to give up her old job & turn a busy hobby into her very own bunting and vintage china business, the 'Jolly Duck Bunting Co', a name inspired by a particularly 'Jolly Duck' that quacked outside the door each morning whilst Victoria was busy sewing bunting.
