OMG! I am so excited to share the next chapter of Bundts & Crumpets Specialty Tea with you. We are in the process of building out our pop up retail location inside viv & ingrid at Oxford Hall, and I cannot begin to express the many levels of excitement, fear and just pure joy of seeing my vision, my dream come to life. I knew I wanted to have a retail location and after being in business for 2 years I felt the time was right to make this dream a reality. As I was actively looking for the perfect commercial space this opportunity, to be part of the viv & ingrid team was presented to me. A great retail space in the Bay Area is not only super expensive but it is extremely hard to come by. Fortunately for me, I met Ingrid, owner of viv & ingrid at Oxford Hall, during a wellness pop up event we had inside her beautiful space who presented me with an opportunity to have a tea shop within her little luxuries boutique.
Located in downtown Berkeley, the space is situated right across from UC Berkeley, with tons of passersby who stop in frequently to check out all the beautiful jewelry and accessories that can be found in the boutique. I hope to add to the space by creating a sense of community through the sharing and sipping of our teas. Our premium loose leaf teas shared in a space with beautifully designed accessories, jewelry, and special gifts will create an atmosphere in which one can easily get lost in. I'm looking forward to this next step and hope that the space reflects what Bundts & Crumpets strives to offer every single customer, a luxury retail experience. Our grand opening is slated for October 16th from 2:00 - 7:00 p.m. so save the date and come out and celebrate with us. Starting on October 18th we will be open on Tuesdays - Saturdays from 12:00 - 7:00 p.m. I want to thank every one who has supported Bundts & Crumpets Specialty Tea. I wouldn't be able to continue this journey without you and I am so appreciative. Yay!!!
