So far, the monogramming mavens at Tibbar Tibbar haven’t encountered an item they can’t handle. Tina LeClair opened her Wayne boutique in April, taking the name from a quirky New England tradition in which saying “tibbar, tibbar” can override a bout of bad luck.
But you won’t need much luck in finding the perfect hostess gift at LeClair’s shop, with an inventory that includes everything from throws to pillows to cutting boards. There’s also a complete collection of barware, featuring glasses of all types (from wine to highball) and ice buckets that can be monogrammed with stamps or fine etching.
As for the Gien fine China sets, Annieglass decorative glass pieces and William Yeoward crystal wine glasses, they make a strong enough of a statement on their own—sans initials.
