J’s Tea-rific Teapot Museum
2732 Cleveland Street
Elloree, SC 29047
Located behind Boland Pharmacy in downtown Elloree (Exit 98 on I95 to SC 6) you will find the obsession of one man and what must be one of the world’s most supportive spouses. Mr. Boland has collected literally thousands of Teapots (I’m hearing 5000 +/-) over the years and has created a Museum with a most unusual entry to display his ‘treasures’. You enter through a very large blue Teapot shaped room addition to find a collection like few others. Rooms are lined from floor to ceiling with teapots of every design and material imaginable. Some you will recognize; however I’m willing to wager you have not nor will you ever see most ever again.
The collection has taken over a large portion of his building and I’m told he has several thousand more that are not on display at the museum. They are displayed well (wife hand evident in this) and you can go thru the exhibit several times and each time you will see something different. We spent an hour (you can take more or less) and enjoyed seeing so many different and unusual teapots. It’s not for everyone’s taste; however, even if you have no interest in teapots, you should stop in to take a look. This is definitely a part of small town USA that should be appreciated and supported.
It’s supposed to be open Wednesday to Friday from 11:00AM to 5:00PM; however, I would definitely recommend you call ahead to be sure they are open during the times advertised. Donations are accepted.
