Fashion, Elegance and Sophistication at Miss Molly’s Tea Room, Gift Shop, Fashion Boutique and Medina Funtastic Toyz

Ed Wright and his wife, Dinah, the owners of Miss Molly’s Tea Room, Gift Shop, Fashion Boutique and Medina Funtastic Toyz, operate the businesses with a professional team of managers and employees. They are now in their 21st year of ownership of Miss Molly’s. The fashion boutique opened in November 2014, while the toy store opened in May 2013. In addition to normal business hours seven days a week, Miss Molly’s hosts a variety of events, including bridal and baby showers, birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, fundraisers and more. 

Ed became heavily involved in the expansion of Medina’s historic district over the last several decades, working with community leaders to start Main St. Medina as well as serving two terms as their first chairman and still serving on the board. He has worked tediously to make the city and its businesses as inviting as possible for residents and visitors alike.

“We have had people come in, telling us they have traveled all over the U.S., [visiting] tea rooms and said Miss Molly’s is one of the best in the country.” 

Nanci Sullivan, a longtime customer of Miss Molly’s, has been coming to the facility since 1996, when it existed in its previous location. 

Now, she visits every Sunday with her husband, Dean. She adores the flavored coffees, while her husband is a fan of the apricot tea. She also enjoys browsing the gift shop and even has game nights with friends from activities purchased at the toy store. 

She encourages others to “treat themselves” for the “full experience.”

“It is a very special place run by very special people, who have invested themselves in their town …” 

Seating up to 160 people, Miss Molly’s caters to a wide range of appetites. From sweet to savory and everything in between, one will not leave feeling hungry. Popular menu items include the famous Chicken Salad Puff and the Strawberry Pretzel Salad. Everything is prepared fresh by their kitchen staff and chef Jason. The Fashion Boutique offers a fabulous selection of designer ladies clothing and accessories. The Gift Shop has many items one can choose from for every occasion, including specialty blended teas, clothing, ladies toiletries, jewelry and more. Complete with stimulating books, games, puzzles and immersive toys, in Medina Funtastic Toyz, an emphasis on education is at the forefront of the business.
