I visited Emerald Necklace Tea Room and giftshop hoping to purchase a few gifts. As I entered the establishment, I was taken off guard, as there was a large group of people waiting in the 'gift shop' area. I was rudely greeted by the owner, and aked if I was taking up one of the parking spaces. I new very well that I was not welcome there, even though I tried to explain I just wanted to look around the gift shop to make a purchase. I still cannot believe in this economy that a shop owner could afford to be as rude as she was. I will never, ever step foot in that place again. There are way too many businesses that I can take my hard earned money and spend it. I have never in my 50 years of life been treated so rudely especially at a place of business. I will return to Molly's in Medina where they have an exceptional assortment of beautiful teapots and tea cups or Remember When in Kirtland that has a wonderful gift shop and the food is out of this world. I always feel welcome at Remember When and I have to remember it is well worth the drive to Kirtland. I rated the teas, food and artistry as poor, because I couldn't even get past the door!
I went to Miss Molly's just to shop. I wanted to get a teapot for a gift. I felt as if I were invisible. When I did ask a question, I know I was being a bother. I'll go back to Remeber When in Kirtland and make my purchase there. They are always friendly, and treat me with respect.
