What would a teapot collector love to do????? Go to Elloree, South Carolina to see the World’s Largest Teapot and a huge teapot collection!!! Yes, folks, it is true! I have the best husband in the world because he indulged me in a recent trip to this fabulous little spot called J’s Tea-rific Teapot Museum!
Julian Boland is the owner (his wife Sybil did all the arranging) and weeks before my visit I sent him an email. His son answered me and said that his parents do not “do” email so he handles their Teapot Museum emails for them. After emailing back and forth with son Patrick a few times it was agreed that as the time for our trip got closer I would call Julian and see what the status of the museum was. Which I did. I had a lovely conversation with this gentle southern gentleman and due to some health issues he has not had the museum open and it won’t be for a few more weeks at least. I was a little disappointed but asked him if it was okay if we at least stopped and took some pictures of the outside which he agreed was perfectly fine. So we did and I hope to make it back down again when it is open.
I do hope to get back down to see the thousands of teapots that he has collected over the years. I think I might even have a few he has in his collection and that would be neat to see!!
A local tv station did a feature on the museum and I think if you watch it you will see why I want to meet sweet Mr. Julian and Sybil!!! They are definitely my kind of folks!!! Enjoy the video and let me know what you think!
