The Mad Hatter Tea Room began as My Mom’s Attic in 1999 by Liz Koch (formerly Orlando) and Amy Bukkila (formerly Broughton), two friends who shared a dream to make a career out of something they loved. Originally, this delightful little Tea Room and Gift Shop was filled with things old and new. Liz and Amy loved finding and creating unique treasures. There was a special magic that happened from the day the doors opened, where customers became friends and regular guests. Two of their favorite guests were Linda and Andrea Pomeroy, a mother and daughter who loved to come sip tea after long days in the corporate world. After only a few short years Amy decided to move out of town and Liz was not able to continue on without her friend and business partner. So it was with great sadness that they decided to sell their little gem. As luck would have it, Linda and Andrea always wanted to own a Tea Room and thus their journey began when they became the new owners in 2002. Linda and Andrea grew the Lil’ Tea Room into a flourishing business and much loved retreat from life’s stresses and kept the “magic” alive. Unfortunately, God had a plan that we do not understand. He took his Angel Andrea home on October 28, 2010. As you can imagine, Linda did not wish to continue with The Mad Hatter without her precious daughter and business partner Andrea. During the days and weeks that followed, Liz returned to offer her support and help Linda to keep their mutual love for the Tea Room alive. Throughout this time it became clear that the wonderful Lil' Tea Room had come full circle, and was meant to be returned to its original owner, Liz Koch. So with great pleasure and gratitude, I am blessed to be serving our wonderful guests once again.
