New Vavenby resident Crystal Hanna plans to open a tea room where people can come, sample her teas, and read.

She lives in the former Vavenby community hall and had an open house on Thursday evening, Oct. 3. There was a power outage so she lit the rooms with candles.

When people arrived she provided them with snacks and drinks and then took them around to see what was for sale. There were aromatic tea samples with information about them plus gift baskets and aprons that Hanna had made. She also reupholsters furniture.

Jodie Dodd had a table as well. She was showing facial and hand creams from a line called Seacret. They are made from minerals from the Dead Sea. Dodd did apply one cream to the back of everyone’s hand. When removed it left the skin silky soft.
