Who Are We?
Phyllis and Grant Buford have always been tea room enthusiasts, desiring one day to open their own tea room. They have visited tea rooms all over the country and worked with the Tuckerton Seaport for several years organizing teas for fundraisers. In the summer of 2018, they worked in collaboration with Tuckerton Seaport to transform the Captain’s House into Lady Magpie’s Tea & Curiosities and officially opened the tea room in October 2018.
The Captain’s House was originally built in 1855.
What is Steampunk? And Why a Steampunk Tea Room?
Steampunk is an imagined future that answers the question: what if steam became the dominant power source instead of electricity? What would technology look like today if it was steam-powered? Steampunk combines our love for the Victorian era and retro futuristic creations.
