Insulted by Hand

about Miss Havisham's Curio

They drink tea every bloody day and have a cat army. They work on a 45 day turnaround and hate everyone, “but not you though, dear.” Which means that if you are one of those who happens to run into Miss Havisham’s Curio because of their cups, waiting time for receiving one of them won’t be so quickly since currently each cup is insulted by hand and that takes time — nothing personal.

The brains behind this project is Melissa Johnson. A wise woman once told her, “If you got hate in your heart, you gotta let it out.” By far, the favorite way to release it is by stewing over a scalding cup of tea.

“I’ve been an animation producer for 20 years and this was a much needed creative outlet. My grandmother was a — crazy — sometimes-antique dealer and I grew up in an eccentric family surrounded by lovely, but often broken, things. Every woman in my family is a Miss Havisham to some degree so I guess old and creepy imprinted on me because pretty much everything I love is chipped and discarded.”

Today, you can find Melissa and her Miss Havisham’s Curio at various popups and conventions around Los Angeles bringing antiques, tea ware, and all the gossip. They cater to the interests of goth Martha Stewarts everywhere. Otherwise, if you’re looking for something specific, would like to have tea or desire a bitchy collaborator just send an email to
