The Queen’s Cup of Tea!


Regional retailer’s products featured in international publication

Stroudsburg, PA – Joann Cartiglia, owner of The Queen’s Treasures in Stroudsburg just completed renovations and a grand reopening in her new North Ninth Street location, and now she gets to bask in yet another spotlight: one of her delicate children’s tea sets is featured in international lifestyle magazine, Sweet Paul.

Upscale Sweet Paul features home décor, recipes as well as tips and tricks for living a “sweet life”. Shoot stylist Don Purple took his time in selecting the right accessories for the photo session in Westchester, New York. “Styling is so visual. I was looking for a very classic kids’ tea set for this shoot. I wanted something classic and pink. I searched for a few days on Google, etsy, and eBay and found nothing I liked. I decided to check Amazon. I knew what I wanted in my mind and when I saw the Queen’s Treasures Pink Princess Tea Set, I knew it would be perfect on top of the pink wicker table.”

Purple contacted Cartiglia and was pleased with her enthusiasm and responsiveness on the project. “Joann was so gracious getting me the service for three. I appreciated her enthusiasm and willingness to help me in perfecting my vision.”

Cartiglia couldn’t believe that such a quality publication had not only found her item, but selected it amongst the many available on the market today. “You can’t imagine how shocked, or excited, we were when they contacted us,” Cartiglia said of finding out the news. It is so pleasing to know ours is the go-to product in my industry.”

The product featured, “Princess Pink Fine China Children’s Princess Tea Party Tea Set” can be found on, or in the retail storefront in Stroudsburg. It’s even available in a doll-sized version! “It also comes in English Rose and Antique Rose patterns through our site or the store,” said Cartiglia.

Purple was pleased with his selection. “Their Princess Pink Tea Set is the way to go for any child’s tea party. I fell in LOVE with it on sight and had to use it for this shoot. It’s so perfect and looks great in this story. I’m sure any little girl would love it, too.”

The Queen’s Treasures is located at 914 N. Ninth Street in Stroudsburg, a half mile from the Stroud Mall. To view more of the product line, please visit, or find the company on Facebook.
