Maudie MacBride's Tea in the Woods
Maudie MacBride was born in 1882 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She was the grandmother of Carole’s husband Todd, and became the inspiration behind the quaint boutique that first opened on Grand Avenue in St. Paul seventeen years ago. She lived and loved during that highly romantic and elegant era from the Gay 90's through the turn of the century and the roaring 20's. The book about her life is available at the Tea Cottage. It may be previewed and ordered by clicking this link:
