Civilitea Gardens is FOR SALE!

5 years after retiring from my career in the legal world and opening our doors, I have decided to fully retire. I have loved my beautiful shop which was built with hard work and love by me, my husband and several of his brothers as well as the talents of fabulous local contractor Rod Baird. We are all proud of creating such a beautiful place in downtown Homewood.

I am hoping to sell the business by the end of 2019. We have had several interested parties already and are looking for the right fit to help transition to a new Homewood business that will also be loved by our customers.


If you are interested in owning a tea shop, bakery or perhaps have your own vision of what you would do with our space, please call our realtor Casey Robertson at (815) 260-6720.

Please work directly with our realtor as I am not able to discuss the business sale while still providing great service to customers.

Thank you for your patronage and support all these years. It has really meant a lot and we wouldn't have made it the full 5 years without you!

In Gratitude, 
Terre Robertson, owner
