Hello, I'm Caryl Tincknell, and I want to help you create a wonderful outdoor living space.
I started Violet Grey in 2010, but have been sourcing vintage garden salvage for much longer than that. Violet Grey grew from my own love of garden design, and from all my experience of foraging for the most exciting vintage accessories and garden antiques.
A DIFFERENT SORT OF DECORATIVE GARDEN SERVICE
The main difference between us and other architectural salvage and antique dealers is our holistic approach to your garden. We don't just sell statement pieces - we want to help you create your perfect outdoors living space, one that suits your lifestyle and reflects your tastes. I'm always here to advise and guide.
Your garden is an extension of your home. It can be an inviting place to relax or entertain, just like the indoor rooms in your house.
VIOLET GREY DELIVERY
Our pieces are very special. They've stood the test of time and may have already done several journeys in their lifetimes.
A very important part of our service is to ensure your purchases are delivered to the location of your choice promptly, safely and securely, whether it is in the UK or further afield.
We are very happy to offer advice on every aspect of your delivery including packing, insurance in transit and timescales.
Speed of delivery depends on the cost, but we have delivered within the UK and Europe within 24 hours and to the USA in three days.
Please contact us on 01392 348318.
HOW WE FIND OUR GARDEN ANTIQUES
Vintage garden accessories have become extremely popular; and gone are the days when you could simply go on to eBay and pick up a bargain! The challenge these days is finding the right stock, and that's how I can help you...
Every month, I spend time in Europe, tracking down fantastic antique and vintage garden furniture and accessories.
HOW VIOLET GREY WORKS
We don't restore the garden antiques that I find, although if we need to, we'll carry out light conservation or repair work. Once the item is ready, we photograph it, and it's uploaded immediately onto our website and social media.
However, I think that what really makes Violet Grey work is our real love for what we do. I have a genuine passion for making outdoor spaces beautiful, and will guide my customers towards the right look, as opposed to simply selling objects.
If there's anything else you'd like to know about Violet Grey and our collection of garden antiques, please don't hesitate to contact me.
