Sarah is the owner and brainchild behind Fancy That, the first event rental company in New England (and the second in the U.S.) to offer vintage china. She graduated magna cum laude from Curry College in Milton, MA, with a B.A. in Communications and a concentration in Broadcasting.
a top rated morning radio show on WBCN in Boston, for the outspoken social/political activist host, Charles Laquidara, and later for many years as an entertainment law paralegal. In 2003, motivated by the inability (a few years earlier) to rent a proper cup and saucer for her Afternoon Tea wedding reception, Sarah turned her lifelong love for antique china into something more: she launched a vintage rental business, one of the first of its kind.
For years, the business grew simply by word of mouth, and now her vast collection of vintage wares can routinely be found at weddings and special events held at fine estates and private homes across New England.
In 2011 she and husband, Brad, opened a tea themed gift shop in Walpole, MA in a quaint bungalow style building (a former residence, built in the 1800's) not too far from where she grew up. The shop stocks tea and accoutrements that Sarah sources from around the world, such as Jam and Clotted Cream from England, paper wrapped sugar cubes from France, and much more.
The Progression from tea shop to tearoom was only a matter of time, and after months of hard word and renovations, the couple launched an English style tearoom serving classic Afternoon Tea to rave reviews in the spring of 2013.
