Carmen Harris has three adult children and two grandchildren. She has worked 15 years in healthcare and loved working with patients. Feeling overwhelmed by management she decided to take a respite from the medical field with the intention of returning but started working in sales and ministry. Over the years, Carmen would host tea parties in her home for family and friends. She grew a love of a time gone by and the friendships that develop over a cup of tea!
On July 18, 2018, Carmen‘s youngest son was hit by a car while riding his bicycle, sustaining life-threatening injuries, which involved a traumatic brain injury. During this horrific event, Carmen took care of her son to help with his recovery. As her son was stabilizing, Carmen lost her employment. She decided to follow her passion that’s been lingering for years to open a tea room in the hopes this new journey will bring joy to herself and to others in Historic Bristol Borough!
Our passion is to bring rest, relaxation and a moment of peace with the people you love in a chaotic world !
My name is Luisa McFadden. To me being part of Bricky Girl Tearoom is my dream come true. I grew up in Dominican Republic with a baker in the family. It was my dear Aunt and Godmother, Tata Puras, who taught me from my early years everything that I know today about baking. I spent my summer vacations in her bakery where she taught me how to make and decorate cakes for any occasion. I have been working on my own since I came to live in U.S.A. I also gained experience working in a Philadelphia bakery for a few years. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and creativity on Mill Street.
