Something Borrowed Vintage provides mismatched china, linens, flatware, and serving pieces at events ranging from weddings to afternoon teas and even pig roasts.
During their pilgrimages in search of fine china, the two partners have accumulated “thousands” of pieces, ranging from “an 1890 bone china plate hand-painted with rosettes and tipped in gold leaf” to a vintage collection of Wedgwood, Lenox and Art Deco china, according to Ms. Kreter, a Wilton native. “It has been a painstaking effort,” she said.
Along with hand-painted plates, tea cups, sugar bowls and creamers, their collection also includes delicate two-handled consommé bowls and parfait dishes.
The business is one of only a few of its kind in the country. “We’ve heard there’s other vintage china rental companies in Los Angeles, Chicago and Texas,” said Ms. Kreter.
