Marcia C. | Owner
Shabby Hattie's Tea Room & Boutique
Years of Industry Service: 1
Marcia has lived in Parkville her entire life and has always wanted a storefront in their charming downtown. As a high schooler, she worked at a fast food joint called Smack's in North Kansas City. But for most of her career, she ran a daycare from home. After raising three children who have given her three grandchildren, she finally made her dream a reality. Marcia's very-girly and very-cute tearoom boasts of 65 tea varieties. They offer breakfast on Saturdays, private parties on Sundays and her customers' ages range from wee three-year-olds to centenarians. Shabbie Hattie's was named after Marcia's grandmother (pictured in the last photo). "She was a tea drinker and the first person I shared a hot cup of tea with."
