We are Steven and Gareth and we've been together (in a relationship) since 2005!

The first decade of our relationship consisted of Steven working 12 hour shifts in the emergency services and Gareth working 5 days a week in retail, so we were like ships passing in the night! 


We established "Vintage Honey Interiors" in 2015 as we both wanted to take back control of our work / home life balance and spend more time together doing something we both loved.

We began trading at Altrincham Market in August 2015 and opened our own showroom in August 2018. The support from customers and fellow independent business owners over the past 5 years has been amazing!


The Coronavirus lockdown reminded us both how much we enjoy each others company (most of the time!) so in June 2020 we made the decision to leave Altrincham Market and focus on The Hive, with the intention of us both working there full time. 


The Hive re-launched as a General Store & Beverage Bar in April 2021 (find out more here) so you can now grab a coffee, participate in some retail therapy and have a catch up with us both!
