Shopping at KrisTea's

KrisTea's is a cute tea and gift shoppe down the street from O'Mara's Restaurant in Berkley, MI. Afternoon Tea attendees are given a 25% discount coupon for KrisTea's, so many times when we leave O'Mara's we head straight to KrisTea's.  I seldom leave empty-handed.


I made two purchases on Tuesday.  The first thing that caught my attention was a teapot rhinestone brooch.  It came in three different styles, and the saleslady said they've been big sellers.  The price tag was $21.50 but with 25% off it was $16.13 plus tax.


Just before we were leaving the store I spotted a unique tea tin, and since I have a collection of them I decided to get it.  The saleslady said she found it in northern Michigan.   Have you ever seen a tin with a clasp like this?


Most have pull-off lids like this one in my collection.


There were lots of things I saw and liked, but only the brooch and tea tin came home with me.   Who knows what February's visit will produce.

  5. Nice place! Getting the coupon really is a bonus! Your new tea pin is lovely and sparkly. Beautiful tin too. I haven't seen the one that closes like yours. Maybe it was used to hold something else?
