Celebrating Chinese New Year - Friday!
Growing up Chinese in 1970s Maryland meant going to the same Chinese school as all the other Chinese kids I knew, eating at the same Chinese restaurants, and looking forward to the red envelopes we'd get every Chinese New Year.
Meet the Bunnies! Ruby's rabbits Jackson and Crystal had their first litter so we've been enjoying watching the little furballs play and grow. Give those bunnies a cuddle at the Chinese New Year party! They will be available for adoption starting Valentine's Day, so let us know if you're interested in reserving one for your household.
Moroccan Tea Party - Saturday And a second party for the weekend... We love Tea Collection clothing for girls and boys and we are excited to kickoff our second season as a Tea Destination store. They spent Fall-Winter in China, but now they've gone to Morocco so we're bringing a taste of Morocco to you! Our Moroccan Tea Party goes all day Saturday, so stop in for a cup of Moroccan Mint tea (or apple juice for little ones) and snacks and shop the latest delivery from the Tea Moroccan collection at 20% off! Kids will receive a free Tea Morocco Activity Booklet.
