Celebrate Hot Tea Month with the Network of Entrepreneurial Women. Our Wine Women and Wellness turns into a tea party this month as we sample hand-blended teas by Peaceful Parlour in Geneva. Owner Shari Rajish has been blending teas for several years and will offer our group a special sampling as we warm our relationships and network together (co-founder favorites include the Peaceful Synergy, Romance, and Fairytale blends).
Peaceful Parlour’s (http://www.peacefulparlour.com/) focus is to find products with environmental and community benefits, supporting local artists, small businesses, fair trade and women co-op groups around the world. These products include household items such as recycled-glass water bottles, cork bowls; gardening accessories; personal adornments such as scarves, hats, jewelry and purses; and home decorative items including lamps, paintings and chimes. With its focus on positive energy flow, Peaceful Parlour also offers incense, purifying sprays and other meditative tools.
The woman-owned store also hosts a variety of pop-up events, including a psychic medium, meet the artisan, outdoor music in the summer and tie-ins to Geneva’s special holiday festivities. Like their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PeacefulParlour) for a peek at current inventory.
Peaceful Parlour is easily accessible via Metra (metrarail.com/metra/en/home/maps.../metra.../station.GENEVA.html?), just a short walk from the Geneva Metra Station on Third Street. Ample street parking is also available near the store. Downtown Geneva is full of charming stores and service businesses, so make an afternoon of it and browse this lovely area.
