More Than Tea; It's An Experience
Welcome to MaraBette & Co Phase 2, Pouring A 2nd Cup!
Water; an essential ingredient for creating a distinctive and quality cup of tea. For the last 5 years, we have built and labored to produce an essential brand that conveys who we are. We have shown up to educate, empower, & provide you with all the tools necessary to make MaraBette & Co a household name. With your help, we believe we have solidified a presence in our community. While we continue to show up every day for others, like water, we endeavor to continue to build & earn your trust by remaining true to our roots & passion to create space for you at our tea table.
Tea; a hardy plant, withstanding test of time, & elements outside of its control, & remaining faithful to produce. Navigating the pandemic, hosting online auctions, donations to local charities schools, fundraisers & more, we have tried to find ways to support our communities, as well as those who live & breath in these communities. Adapting to change around us, yet remaining consistent to you our customers & supports. Like tea, we hope to continue to be that solid business of integrity which values the person above the bottom line, in everything we do!
Pouring A Cup, that stage where you share with others a beloved cup of tea or savor the aroma of a steaming cup. For us, it's all of the above & we cannot wait to share a cup with you & pour you a cup overflowing with love & gratitude. It's here, where we welcome you to a safe place, a place of respite & relaxation- a place where you can find refreshment in a cup of tea, or even be reenergized for the time ahead. Pouring a cup means we will get to open our doors and let you walk in, have a seat, browse, or simple sit & sip.
Are you as excited as we are? I imagine you have a million questions regarding this next phase. In the following content, I'll explain and answer a few of your questions, as well as some ways we are raising funds to accomplish this next phase.
If you attended our 5 Year Anniversary Afternoon Tea celebration, you heard me talk about the steps we will be taking toward this next phase. Here are the major points which are the bedrocks of opening a shop.
1. We will not be using traditional means, (i.e. loans or government assistance) to purchases a building
2. We do not have a specific timeline to when we will open.
3. Each step will be faith-led meaning the steps taken toward this endeavor may not look like what others deem as "normal"
4. You will have opportunities to get involved in steps of the process.
How Can You Get Involved You Ask?
Many of you already have and did not know you were doing so!
When we created our anniversary blend & our anniversary candle we specified for a portion from every purchase to go toward the "funding account" A huge thank you already!
In the future there will be more "fundraising products" that you can enjoy while helping toward the efforts.
We have set up a "give" button below for those wishing to give strictly toward this endeavor. Each gift given will go toward the tea shop fund.
In addition, we will be applying for grants along the way, being diligent to carry out every step of this goal.
*As mentioned, we strive to do everything with honesty and integrity so we want to be as transparent as possible. Therefore on the right hand side, you will find a current goal chart as we start this journey.*
Thank you for all your support.
