The second tenant to open in attorney Alfonso Marra Bax’s building at 442-444 Center is the Mad Hatter Tea House. Owner Barbara Gray said the Lewiston space, which faces the road, is a combination teashop and Shawn’s Gate Art Studio.
Inside the store, tea and tea products are for sale. In the fall months, Gray said hot tea, coffee and soup will be offered in-store. She also has a line of CBD products.
Shawn’s Gate offers art classes – which are already booked. Gray said customers can feel free to come in and not worry about disrupting lessons.
Following a soft opening, the Mad Hatter Tea House is expected to be open from 10:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
