Our shop will once again offer some great Holiday decorations, gifts, ornaments, and many unique items for both home and garden.  We carefully chose our entire stock and hope you will find some time to see what we are offering for sale this holiday season.

We incorporate some 15-20 varieties of pinecones and other natural and tasteful decorative accents into our wreaths, baskets, centerpieces, swags, & Yule logs

This year we are reducing the number of direct sell wreaths, so we encourage you to order ahead for the season.   We will take no orders for wreaths and arrangements after Dec 19th.   We also appreciate your early orders for poinsettias.
