The summer event that will fit YOU to a T

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Tea isn’t just for parties anymore, you can cook with it, use it in your garden and sleep soundly with it.  This is why I am so excited to tell you about the Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening at Sugar and Spice Tea Company!

The ribbon cutting will be an open house for the public with delicious samples of several house blend teas and a mix of the new menu dessert offerings.  I have to tell you that the baked goods are to die for and I just happened to  learn that one of the most popular teas of the shop is the Dr. Blue Who (local whovians clamor for it) AND  they were the total  inspiration for the real life Tardis bathroom that has become a tourist photo hot spot.

At the event you will also be able to meet the awesome Mayor of Poulsbo. They will cut the glorious ribbon at 5pm with photo opportunities available. The public is welcome and encouraged to tour the new tea room, sample the new menu items and meet the proprietors, staff and vendors of the tea shop.

Sugar and Spice Tea Company was founded with high standards and expectations of achievement.  Their primary initiatives are helping the community by educating everyone about the health benefits of tea, showcasing local artists, offering locally grown and prepared foods and hosting fun family (free popcorn) event nights.

I hope that you will mark your calendar for the greatest event of the summer. See you there!

Cash Mob Success hits Kitsap County

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Local customers at Jak's Cafe Poulsbo, WA

Our day started early for a breakfast visit at Jak’s Cafe and Espresso where Julie Krucek makes everything in her beautiful cafe from scratch.  The family recipes are all gluten free.

She served up many rounds of egg Benedict and delicious artisan creme puffs and really rolled out the hospitality red carpet by singing Happy Birthday to a local Poulsbo resident. Patrons trickled in all day from 10AM-5Pm and enjoyed their visit to the very well known cafe.

Cash Mobbers from Kitsap County couldn’t have asked for better weather for National Cash Mob Day. “My sales were up 40% that day- Thanks so much! When can we do it again?” stated Julie Krucek founder of Jak’s cafe.

The next awesome location was CJ’s Evergreen General Store and Catering where Cynthia Jeffries-Cyr also rolled out the penny candy,  Dinner to Go meals from her famous catering department, hot aromatic espresso, ice cream and pies.

Bremerton Cash Mobs were instrumental in inviting local residents, creating the certificates of appreciation and showcasing what locally made products were available for purchase.  “We bought some of the Sequim Valley Marion Berry Jelly. I’m in heaven!” stated  Robin Henderson founder of Bremerton Cash Mobs.

Cash Mobbers and local business owners celebrated the sunny day and the events success at another locally owned establishment by having a nice meal at Rachel’s in Bremerton. Everyone relaxed, socialized and networked with other local business owners and residents that they might not have normally met.  It was a very humbling, gratifying  and emotional experience for many who attended. Cash Mobbing might be addicting!

“I would like to thank all of you that came by the store for the 1st Bremerton Cash Mob yesterday. I really appreciate all the people that came out. We feel that it was a success. We were so glad to see so many new people and returning customers. We hope to see all of you again. If there is anything that you would like to see us carry, just let us know and we will see what we can do about that. Again, thank you so much. It really was an honor to be one of the first Cash Mob sites. ” Cynthia Jeffries-Cyr
