Tea and Sympathy need you!

Donation protected
We need your help! We have been holding on by the skin of our teeth for years now and with increasing rent prices, rental taxes and overall increases in the cost of doing business our little tea shop is in dire need of your support! 

Nicky opened the restaurant at 108 Greenwich Ave in December 1990 two days before Christmas in the hopes of creating a place for Brits in NY to come and have a proper cup of tea. In 1994 Carry On Tea & Sympathy opened at 110 Greenwich Ave next a British grocery store to ease all of your crisps, biscuits and chocolate cravings and in 1999 A Salt and Battery at 112 Greenwich Ave, serving the best fish and chips this side of the west end. 

We have stood by and watched all of the local businesses who made the West Village what it is today lose to landlords and buyouts and profit losses. We are trying so hard not to be added to that list. 

These funds will be used to help lower our loan repayments, pay our vendors, pay our real estate taxes, assist in our rent which for our three businesses is a whopping $28,000 per month plus real estate taxes which as landlords refinance the building increase yearly. 

These funds will also be used to assist us in staying open due to the disaster of COVID-19. As we see so many businesses around us close due to financial hardship associated with the pandemic we cannot begin to describe how much your contributions help us to keep moving forward in what is a time in New York unlike any other. 

Any contribution you can afford is extremely appreciated. There are no words to describe how much we love this community.
