Who We Are

We are Rick and Cynthia Williams and together we own The Teacup Attic. We reside in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada with our daughter, Meagan, who also helps us with the shop from time to time. We enjoy attending auctions together as well as spending copious amounts of time enjoying the outdoors hiking and birdwatching.

Antiquing and collecting vintage pieces has been a hobby of ours for many years. We enjoy the beauty of the pieces and the history behind them. As the pieces we sell are no longer made (or no longer made in England), we love seeing them purchased by families who will love them again and cherish them for years to come.

A question we get asked often is, how did you get started selling teacups? And people often assume Cynthia was the catalyst for this adventure but in fact, the credit goes to Rick. Sound funny? You would be surprised to learn how many teacup shops on the internet are actually managed by men who have a wonderful eye for unique and beautiful pieces.
