A tea party (for mad hatters?)



Pretty as a picture? Well, at least I didn’t pull a silly face. The event was a truly magnificent tea party at a store called Alla tiders handelsbod (A convenience store for all times). If you visit Stockholm, then I urge you to visit this very charming shop located in Gamla stan (Old town). It is, as the name suggest, a store for all sorts of useful things, all in an atmosphere of the early 20th century.




In August they also hosted a series of tea parties. Tea was served as well as cakes and cookies in abundance as well as a performance from an artist aptly named Tea Time. There was also amusement in the form of naughty silent movies, which perhaps felt more silly than erotic. We were a couple of friends who went together and I think we all had a great time. A lot of tea was drunk and ever single cake got eaten.



Myra in her white hat really did look pretty as a picture and won first prize for best outfit.



On the evening of the tea party the whole store was filled with tables and chairs, but J and I visited a couple of days before.

The charming properties handing out candy.



I wasn’t interested in cars as a child, but I think I would have craved this one nevertheless.




The store has a great selection of hats, so I had to try some on, of course.

As well as jam, lemonade and all sorts of interesting bits and pieces.



There are also plans to have seminars in the cellar in the future, as well as more tea parties, and probably a lot of other fun stuff.



Big thanks to Lars Höög who allowed me to use his pictures from the tea party.

I adore the red hat. I wonder if I'll get the time to see anything but Nordiska museet when I go to Stockholm for the Pasold conference in two weeks' time.

Second Hand Rose: The cookies where way to tasty- all homemade. There weren't a single one left when we were done.

Erika: Ja, den ska du absolut kolla in!

Sara: Yes, you do! :) Thank you! I would have bought it if it hadn't been a tad too expensive.
