T-Party Antiques


Why do you use the letter "T" instead of the word "Tea" in T-Party's name?
I was inspired by the women of the 1920's whose search for independence led them to open tea rooms in their living rooms during prohibition. Some borrowed the abbreviated "T" from the temperance campaign, calling themselves T-houses. I liked that historical significance of the "T."

Do you still have a tea room?
No, my antiques shop and tea room closed in June 2008. It had a succesful five year run, but after its lease was up, my landlord had plans to tear down the farmhouse that I rented. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a suitable new location.

Do you plan to open up another tea room?
Not at this point in time. I'm having too much fun doing other things, like writing articles for magazines and searching far and wide for the vintage treasures I sell in my Etsy shop.

What is Etsy?
Etsy is a vibrant online marketplace for crafters, artists and collectors to sell their handmade creations, vintage goods and crafting supplies.

What do you sell in your Etsy shop?
I offer antique and vintage goods along with handmade items crafted from vintage materials.

How do I pay for my Etsy order from your shop?
Payment is made via PayPal or by using a major credit card. If you are a Connecticut resident, you will also be charged 6.35% sales tax.

How will my Etsy order be shipped?
USPS Priority Mail or Parcel Select with Tracking are my preferred methods of shipment. Local customers are always welcome to forgo shipping and pick up their order from my studio. If you choose to pick up your order, I will issue you a refund for the freight.

Do you allow returns and refunds on Etsy purchases?
Absolutely! Your satisfaction is my top priority. If you have a problem with a transaction, email me and I will do my best to resolve the issue.
