Tea Room Postcard #16 -- Little Grey House Tea Room (Maitland, Fla.)
Some of the tea room postcards I have are from grand, busy tea rooms, but this week's featured tea room is the opposite of that, the Little Grey House Tea Room in Maitland, Florida.
The back of the card notes the tea room was located "One mile north of Winter Park." Apparently the tea room served luncheons, dinners and special parties, and the "Antique Glass" makes me think they might have sold these glasswares. Wouldn't that have been a lovely place to visit? A book was published in 1904 called "The Little Grey House," using the English spelling "grey," and I can't help wondering if that inspired the name of this house and tea room. If it were still around today, I'd sure love to stop by for tea and shop for some antique glassware!
