THE DIANA K. PERKINS
TEA ROOM & EMPORIUM
“Stop in, have a nice cup of tea on us and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.” ~ Diana
We have an impressive collection of fine items in our gift shop. We’re highlighting some of our current exhibit items for our exhibit,
Unlacing the Corset,
Unleashing the Vote
We carry many hand crafted items made by area craftsmen and artisans, cards, prints, books by local authors and a number of knitting, quilting and sewing books. We also have some local souvenirs.
DIANA’S TEA ROOM & EMPORIUM
Author, Diana K. Perkins, has been a long time volunteer and angel at the museum. Her hand has quietly improved elements in all departments of our operations, often unnoticed by the public. Over a long period of time, Diana began putting decorative touches to our Gift Shop so it would have a fun and welcoming feeling the minute anyone walked in the door. A tea cart, tea selection and electric pot would appear. A credit card scanning station, and cash drawer which would be installed for our convenience was connected. Cafe tables with bright red umbrellas and joyous table cloths would arrive and be set up at no cost. So, the Board has unanimously decided to dedicate the gift shop to Diana with great thanks. Her books are available on our shelves and online. We hear another title is in the works. As you shop through our online store, think on Diana’s creation of our current website with a smile. Her contributions got the ball rolling to bring operations into the 2020s and beyond and that’s a good thing.
