Vintage Rose Event Hire – Ayr

May 6, 2023


Antique and Unique! A wonderful opportunity to purchase this very popular Ayr business for the price of the hire stock and equipment!

Business Overview
Vintage Rose Event Hire is located at 62 Wilmington Street, Ayr and is essentially three exciting businesses in one:

  • Event hire and event styling using antique furniture and other quality hire stock
  • Tearoom for high teas and high cheese
  • Indoor and outdoor event space for weddings, bridal boutiques (brides and professionals using the venue to get ready for the big day), engagements and parties

The event hire started 9 years ago and was originally operated from the seller’s home. In 2021, the seller purchased the old Ayr General Store and spent 9 months lovingly renovating it (including full repaint, polishing the floors, adding air-conditioning, a new bathroom and kitchen). The once rundown building was transformed into the classy and elegant event space and tearoom it is today and in November 2021, the doors were opened to the public.

The premises and sale includes:

  • Formal dining area with separate tearooms to hold private events and high teas
  • Dual garden event space complete with an assortment of tables and chairs, beautiful flowers, lush lawn, a rustic shed and outdoor bar
  • Commercial kitchen
  • Full inventory of antique and unique items including furniture, crockery, 150 sets of English china, lace tablecloths, crystal glasses and silver cutlery

The value of the hire stock and equipment is more than the asking price of $150,000 wiwo (neg).
