Spring is in the air!

Spring is in the air at Garden Specialties!

What a great weekend in Connecticut, sunny and in the 50s!! The Olde Mistick Village was full of happy shoppers. It is always interesting to see what new products are going to be the most popular this season. We have a pretty good idea after a weekend like this! This beautiful resin Fairy statue was a big hit. So I'll be sure to bring more of those into the store. We have other Fairies as well but this one was by far the most popular.

This piece sold amazingly well!!! This pin wheel is 7 feet tall. I can see why is was so popular. This piece provides both height and movement to your garden. Garden architecture that moves is a hot item this year!

Well we have several ideas for you. How about a Himalayan Salt lamp, these lamps provide a soft orange glow. For thousands of years, natural crystal salt has been used for its cleansing properties. They give off negative ions that fight off pollutants. In ancient times and even today it is used as a natural alternative in the treatment for a variety of ailments, a perfect gift for people of any age. Himalayan Salt products range from $15.00 to $75.00.

You arrive at the section of the store where all the gadgets and tools for the gardener are kept. Suddenly you remember that Uncle Harry loves to garden. Well a popular gift this holiday season for the avid gardener is our line of ergonomic garden tools made by Radius. There are 4 styles of hand tools for $9.99 each, and 4 mid length tools at $39.99 each. Just recently we added the Pro Lite tools which are perfect for women. These tools are good looking, durable and ergonomic!

As you wonder the store enjoying the smells of the Tyler Candles and the Sonoma Lavender you see so many unique things. Handmade trees from copper wire, rock cairns, statuary for the home and garden, hummingbird feeders, little birdhouse and large birdhouses, the list goes on and on. So what should I buy for Mom? The hand blown glass hummingbird and songbird feeders look beautiful. The colors, violet, green, blue, red and even more look so pretty hanging from a tree! Every holiday these feeders fly out of here. Prices range from $20.00 to $60.00.

Garden Specialties The Store

Through the past four years, Garden Specialties has taken on an identity that driven by both our customers and our staff. Garden Specialties started with the idea of selling unique architecture for the garden, merchandise that you just did not find in the typical garden center atmosphere. I wanted to provide you with items that help you turn your outdoor space into an expansion of your home. The first store was located in Centerbrook, CT. In the early years, the Centerbrook store sold a combination of new merchandise as well as antiques. Then I expanded the lines to include home d├ęcor and gift items. The store had a great atmosphere and emphasized the rustic antique look.

In May of 2008, I opened a second store in the Olde Mistick Village in Mystic Ct. I brought with me the atmosphere that everyone loved, running water, music around nature and just a natural soothing feel. Due to the location, once again I expanded our lines to the merchandise customers wanted to buy, still bringing in a unique assortment that you just do not find “everywhere else”.

Mystic is the biggest tourist attraction in Connecticut and many of our customers wanted to take our store home with them! Everyday our customers compliment the store and us. Our mailing-email list has grown tremendously, it quickly became obvious that my next venture needed t be a good web site with an online store that offered the same merchandise the store did which let our out of town customers take us home with them. In January 2009, I made a business, and life style decision to close the Centerbrook store and put all my efforts into the Mystic store and the new website. Many of our Centerbrook customers come and visit us in Mystic and hopefully the website will be great for those customers to.

I invite all of you to comment on Garden Specialties! What do you think of the store, the website or both? I love the store and I find it a pleasure to come to work. I enjoy talking with you and sharing thoughts and ideas. I am looking forward to your thoughts and comments. Yours in Gardening, Garden Gal
