Tea room business cards
Over the years I've made a point of collecting business cards from the various tea rooms I have visited. The very first one, up top, is from the Crumpet Tea Room in Rogers, Ark., since it was the first tea room I ever visited. Next is my favorite Georgia tea room, The Tea Room in Savannah, followed by others I have visited and enjoyed. I should point out that the Grand Hotel's tea room, Urban Tea Party and A Time Remembered have all closed, although I have lots of pleasant memories associated with these places.
Last weekend, I was at the Big Shanty Antique Mall in Marietta when I came across this little teapot tin for $2. I liked the handle on it, and almost the second I saw it I knew it would be perfect for holding business cards of tea rooms and tea businesses. Do you save tea room business cards? If so, how do you display or preserve them?
