***SOLD OUT*** Little Traveler History Breakfast

July 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

| $20

The Little Traveler’s story dates back to 1922 when our founder, Kate Raftery, sent invitations for afternoon tea and a sale in her living room, giving her local acquaintances a chance to enjoy the treasures her overseas friend had sent from across the globe. The tea was a success, and The Little Traveler was born.

During this special event, you'll enjoy breakfast in the Atrium Café while learning interesting facts about The Little Traveler and its founder from a Geneva History Museum historian. Through video interviews with former employees of Kate Raftery and excerpts from her letters, you’ll discover how she was instrumental in creating the Third Street we know today.

$20. Proceeds benefit the Geneva History Museum.

On the morning of the event, please enter the store at the Fulton Street Entrance (under the long awning at the side of the store by Housewares).

Please note: this event has a 48-hour cancellation policy. If you cannot attend the event, you must inform our Gift Gallery at least two days prior to the event to receive a full refund.
