Tables of Spring 2011

Both stores we are involved with have so many fun things planned for 2011! The next one is planned for this weekend, this is our 2nd Annual Tables of Spring. The different booths set up tablescapes within their booth to show off their Spring wares and how they can be used on tables. Last year was such fun, we had one with a mannequin in a bridal gown , the gown was the tablecloth and the bridal gifts for sale were scattered across the gown! Then we had a “wine and cheese” party  with wine glasses, wine stoppers, other accessories for sale as the “hostess” poured some wine for each customer! This year is going to be fun too! I set up my table tonite as I have to be out of town this weekend. It’s a “Teddy Bear Tea Party” as my booth sells teas and  tea accessories!

A cup of hot tea= a cup of good health

Antiques & Uniques has been promoting the drinking of hot tea for several years now. According to www.teabenefits.com ,drinking tea may help prevent everything from cavities to Parkinson’s disease! Not sure about all of that, but it definitely has amazing health benefits and we all know it contains antioxidants.Our teas are from 5 different companies and we sell individual tea bags so you can pick and choose your favorites. We carry all different kinds of teas , black, green , white, red. Did you know the processing of the leaves of camellia sinensis determines whether a tea will be green, black or red? This picture is from the tea booth in Chickamauga where we carry the majority of our teas and tea accessories.

One lump or two?



Several years ago, I started carrying orphaned( one of kind, the only one left in a set) tea cups and teapots at the shop. I was amazed at how well they sold. I realized then that maybe some tea( by the tea bag, not by the pound) might be good to sell along with them. I have been so pleased about the success of both of these items as well as tons more, all being related to taking tea. We now sell tea from 5 different makers, over 150 different flavors! We sell tea spoons, infusers, lemon, tea caddies, all sorts of things tea related. We even have cards and notepads with teabags attached. Are you a tea drinker and can’t find enough good tea samples? Maybe you want to have a tea party, need favors or want a special gift for a friend who takes tea, come see us! These are a couple of shots from the tea booth at The Galleries on Gordon, Chickamauga, GA. Open Tues-Fri 10-5:30; Sat 10-4.
