We are Steven and Gareth and we've been together as a couple since 2005!
The first decade of our relationship had 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.
Covid-19 lockdown reminded us both how much we enjoy each others company (most of the time!) so in June 2020 we made the decision focus on The Hive full-time as a retail shop. We're now open 11am-5pm Tuesdays-Fridays and 9am-5pm Saturdays.
We would describe The Hive as a homeware store with a strong focus on vintage, but we are continually seeking to grow and develop our business, so we have introduced new ranges. So you will also find a carefully curated mix of furniture, lifestyle items, hardwares, gifts and cards too in The Hive.
