“I am very excited about how this is coming together,” said tea chairwoman Sharman H. French.

Space is limited to 200 attendees, though a wait-list might be formed, according to organizers.

Susan Harrison, who is coordinating the vendors, said nine artisans are coming. They will be selling a variety of wares, including purses, wallets, surfing arts, artwork from Guatemala, tunics, leggings, jewelry, candles and pet items.

There will also be a raffle and silent auction. The latter will feature beach and maritime offerings, a china tea set, picnic basket, waffle maker, tool boxes, a Station 21 dinner event, yoga/ballet classes, jewelry and a Sycuan Resort lunch and spa day.

Although styled along the lines of an afternoon British High Tea, the event will feature French influences, as the local French Gourmet restaurant will be providing sandwiches and desserts. Tables will have fine china settings for teas, jams and lemon curds.

Going along with the high tea theme, organizers said attendees are welcome to wear hats.

The Pacific Beach Woman’s Club was founded in 1895 as a “society for mutual improvement” for the women of PB and the surrounding community.
