Donate Your China

Donate Your China

Elsie’s are always searching for pretty vintage china cups, plates, saucers, milk jugs, sugar bowls and teapots. If you would like to donate your redundant china, Elsie’s would be delighted to accept them, prolonging their lives and continue with promoting how “proper tea” should be served. A big thank you goes out to those of you who have already very kindly donated them to Elsie’s.  We are using them with love.
