...another Boston Tea Party makes the press...

There’s nothing like sharing “good news”! 
And I have some wonderful news to share…

My much beloved Torquay pottery has just been celebrated with a feature in the February issue of Romantic Vintage magazine!  
 
What a great thing to get some new press on Torquay pottery in such a lovely publication...

How did it happen??? Well, last summer I made a visit to the home of my gal pal and fellow collector, Kathy Collins, who lives just outside Boston.  
We had a plan to shoot images of a tea party...


It was an exciting and very busy day, with a 4 hour drive up and back from NY with my 10 year old son, Rory, in tow.  We had a great time and all of us involved were excited to see what would become of the images of our tea party...

When I shared them with Editor-in-Chief, Meanie Hickman, of Romantic Vintage she immediately offered to include something in her magazine. The four-page feature AND the mention of “Torquay Pottery” on the cover far exceeded my expectations!  
 
 A big thanks to her for helping us celebrate the pottery, its history and what it can add to a room in style and display. 


Here’s just a peek in this post of 
just some of the images and story...

The magazine is available on-line via www.RomanticVintageMagazine.com for $2.99 or use this web address to order your PRINTED copy of the magazine shipped to you for $9.99
www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/1021207
 

It’s such a treat to see so many wonderful pots among the pages of the magazine, as well as a mention of NATS (the North American Torquay Society -- our collectors' group) and our events of 2016 as a great way to learn more about the pottery. 
 

Thanks again to Melanie, Kathy, and Lyn for working with me to make this happen!  xxoo Jen
