Fancy That's Process of Becoming a Tea House - Chronicling the Process
Over the next six months or so we'll be chronicling the process of becoming a Tea House, or if you prefer, a Tea Room. It just seems like the next logical step for us, and we're excited about it.
Fancy That started almost ten years ago as a small, woman owned, family run vintage china rental company with a penchant for tea parties :) ...Almost ten years on, our inventory includes pristine mismatched silver plated flatware, beautiful dinner plates, vintage tea cups and saucers and so much more.
In May of 2011, we opened our retail gift shoppe. So many of our clients and customers wanted to be able to purchase items for tea, we simply had to help out! (grin). Our Shoppe offers imported British lemon curd, clotted cream, Double Devon cream British jams, French jams, vintage china cups and saucers and many more unique tea related items (like Scottish Clotted Cream Fudge! YUMMY!).
All of the above has led to our newest and best idea yet...
We want to serve afternoon tea, and we're hoping to do so to coincide with our Tenth Year Anniversary Celebrations starting March 2013!
One little problem. The cute bungalow we lease is not quite equipped for the whole process.
So, we have a little bit of work to do, and we thought it would be fun to share the process with everyone here! So stay tuned as we chronicle the process of Becoming a Tea House - Victorian-Gentility-Style!
Thanks for stopping by!
