First, as you may already know, we moved across the road to a new location here in The Plains! We are now at 6488 Main Street, across from the bike shop and right next to Peyton's Place. We are focusing on our tea service now and have more seating in our new space; we no longer carry large antique furniture, but still have some lovely small pieces, vintage china, silver, jewelry, art, books, and of course lots of tea things. Check out our Facebook page to see photos of our new home ... or better yet, come and visit!

"ALL HALLOWS TEA" EVENT:
Once again, our staff is going all out planning a fun Halloween-themed tea with ghoulish goodies and spooky specialties. Mark your calendar now for either Saturday or Sunday, October 27 or 28, from 2-4pm. Check our website and Facebook pages later this month for more info; advance reservations will be required.

We hope to see you soon!
