About Us...

I never set out to have a Teapot Collection. Just like my Biscuit Tin Collection or my Teddy Bear collection, my Teapot Collection began casually. I bought my first teapot because I wasn't going to use tea bags anymore. I wanted REAL tea and therefore I needed a teapot. My second teapot, however, I bought because I wanted it. By the third teapot, I was  hooked and there was no going back. My Teapot Collection was in full swing and once my friends noticed the in-gathering they began to add teapots as well. 

I have one absolute favorite teapot - not because of its exquisite design or intrinsic value but because of its usefulness. My hefty Porcelier keeps tea wonderfully warm to the last drop. All the rest of my teapots are lovely, charmingly cute or whimsical or "Oh my goodness! Where did you find that?" I enjoyed finding all of them but after a while...

At the beginning of 2013 I offered a few of my finds (my Rescues) on my TEAtitudes website as a way of sharing my collection and making room in my cupboard for other teapots. Your response was wonderful - many of my sweet teapots are now in your homes. It made me happy to share and know my teapots were being enjoyed AND that I had an opportunity to keep on searching and finding more teapots. For me, the fun of collecting is in the finding. After that - I'd rather share than keep.

This website is all about that - the quest, the find, the rescue and the share. I launched this website dedicated only to my Rescues - wonderful teapots reasonably priced worthy of a new home

How long have you been in business?
Parent company began doing business in 2002;  went online in 2007. In August of 2011 the TEAtitudes division was launched to separate out the inspirational gifts from the sewing gifts. October 2013 GrandmaRaeTeapotRescue was launched to separate out the Rescued Teapots that were on the TEAtitudes site.

Why did you separate out your teapots from TEAtitude? The teapots were becoming a bit of a distraction to the inspirational focus of the site.
Why don't you have a Shopping Cart?
I made a decision a long time ago not to have a Shopping Cart. I'm an Old School person who likes to know her customers. Send me your phone number and we'll chat. By the way, I am modern enough to accept credit cards.

Where is your store?
I do not have a "Bricks & Mortar" store. I am online ONLY. Also, I do not have a catalog. Sorry.

How did you suddenly have so many Rescued Teapots to launch this website? 
Once the decision to create this site was made, my husband and I went on a 3 day Rescue Mission in southern New Jersey. A friend of mine who lives in London and my friend Kitty who owned a Tea Shop hunt for Rescues as well.
Do you sell wholesale on this site?
Thank you for asking: No.
Mission statement:
Every company or organization has a mission statement; it's the WHY of what they do whenever they do.
Here's mine:

Because I am aware of all the talents the Lord has given me and because I am grateful of all the blessings the Lord has bestowed on me, my desire in having/running this business is to treat others the way the Lord has treated me; in that I respect their requests, provide kind and courteous service and send them a product that reflects a level of excellence given to me by the Lord. The Bible teaches me Do all things as unto the Lord. (Colossians 3:23)

Teapot Rescue and TEAtitudes are both a division of Grandma Rae LLC DBA, PO Box 155, Hibernia, NJ 07842 Phone: 973.664.0986
