About

You Be Mother...

... is a shop established together by Linda (the mum) and Athena (the daughter). Here you'll find plenty of vintage tea cups and saucers and, eventually, other tea-related accessories. Our philosophy is that if you love tea (like we do) you should love your tea cups too. Tea just tastes better out of your favorite cup. Really. It just does.

Why "You Be Mother?" Well, in jolly old England, where we have spent many a holiday visiting Athena's Nan, we learned that "you be mother" is what you say to the person whose turn it is to pour the tea. "Shall I be mother?" means that I will pour the tea. Get it?

Why are we selling all these tea cups, you might ask? Good question... Once upon a time, Athena was set to be a teenage(ish) bride. Linda made plans for a tea party bridal shower. Then, when Athena's relationship status changed, we found ourselves inundated with cups and saucers of every description. Granted, we had enough tea cups to drink from a different one each day, but that seemed selfish. So we decided to share the love.

So, relax, sip some tea, browse our shop, and we hope you find something you love!
