 Just last week, we received a shipment of terracotta pumpkins in various sizes and colors – all with smiling faces! Also have some pumpkin shaped planters for your mums and other fall arrangements and flowers. We have a great selection of ‘prim’ cloth pumpkins, candles, stenciled jute rugs and tabletop, fall flags, florals, wreaths – including real bittersweet and lots more!


Fall starts today!

Thank You

Our Fall Open House has come and gone. Lots of you came by to visit, get ideas, buy really great things and share what’s been going on since we saw you last. We encouraged our customers to bring along food that would be shared with local food banks.

And you did.

Yesterday, we delivered 176 pounds of all kinds of canned food (fruit, veggies, tuna, soups, spaghetti sauce) – and lots of pasta, taco kits, and more!  All that went to our local New Hope Ministries Food Bank and they are always appreciative of all donations!

In addition to all that, we will be taking the single-serving size food over to Ruth’s Harvest Backpack Program.  Volunteers there sort all the packages of food, then pack a variety of items into small backpacks and deliver them to elementary schools for participating children to take home on Fridays to have some nutritious meals and snacks over the weekend.  Lots of options for donating to this organization – tuna kits, drinks, cereal, pudding and fruit cups, peanut-free snacks, mini-meals and lots more.

Have you seen these?

If you’ve not been in the shop recently, you missed this new product!  We have double-walled acrylic travel mugs that include a  removable, stainless steel infuser basket.  You can brew 16 oz. of tea right in the tumbler – remove and empty the basket, keep the tea hot or add ice, secure the screw on lid and take your fresh tea anywhere!


The travel mugs have a leak proof sippy spout with a matching silicone sleeve and come in these six colors!  Right now we have a good selection of tumblers and organic loose tea.


Six available flavors of organic tea are sealed and packaged in these cute, colorful containers and include black, green, oolong and herbal tea blends.  Each flavor has combinations of natural fruit bits, flower petals and leaves to make a bold and tasty blend.  Directions for making single cups or pitchers of tea are included in each canister along with serving suggestions!  A great gift for yourself or your favorite tea drinker!


Give us a call for more information — or if you are interested in purchasing any of these.  We can ship anywhere in the U.S.       717-630-8390

The official start of fall is just over a month away — but towards the end of summer many of us look forward to cooler, less humid, more pleasant weather here in Pennsylvania.  We look forward to the beautiful colors of our fall leaves and bright blue skies. We celebrate the harvest with pumpkins, gourds, flowers and an abundance of garden goodies.


Here, at the shop, we are getting ready for all that.  While, of course, we still have our everyday great inventory of braided rugs, country style curtains, lamps and shades and more — we turn toward fall scents with our candles, fall colors with our wreaths and florals, fall themes with our flags, scarecrows, pumpkins and gourds.


Over the next couple of weeks, we will continue to introduce more fall treats into the shop.  The second weekend in September, we will host our annual open house — Stop before then and often to see the day-to-day changes.

See something here – but aren’t nearby?  Give us a call and we can arrange to have it shipped to you!  717-630-8390
