Our GIFT SHOP may be closed due to Covid regulations but we are going on line. 

Please scroll through and check back as we expand our offerings. 

Feel free to contact Bev York at themillmuseum@gmail.com with any inquiries.

We have an impressive collection of FINE GIFTS, SOUVENIRS, HAND CRAFTS and VINTAGE FINDINGS in our Emporium.

You are welcome to just come in and sit with a book or some knitting to get away from it all in our 19th Century building.

About 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 has just been published. As you shop through our online store, think on Diana’s creation of our website with a smile. Her contributions got the ball rolling to bring operations into the 2020s and beyond and that’s a good thing.
