Hope all of you have survived the wrath of Irene & enjoyed your Labor Day weekend. We've cleared the branches from our driveway and now the power is back on, and so we're delighted to give everyone an update about Tea & Revelry!
We had to postpone it because of the hurricane, but now we're back and offering additional tickets to cover the increase in demand.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Rising Phoenix Fund, sponsored by Beyond Victoriana and Button Me Up on Etsy. Started in March 2011 in response to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami disaster, the fund is in support of Shelterbox, an international aid organization specializing in first responder disaster relief. The Rising Phoenix Fund’s goal is to raise $3000 total by the end of our convention season.
