Spring has Sprung – What’s New at the Garden Center!
Every year, the Boutique and Garden Shop overflow with new products that we are excited to talk about. Buying trips happen throughout the year to shop for the next year’s greatest products. This year promises loads of new products and ideas from renown garden design company, Cut My Plastic. So, it is exciting to see all of 2015’s hard work cohesively come together for spring 2016. During these buying trips, some new products and brand names just speak to us, while others pop out off of the display that make us say, “we have to have it.” Here are a few of those items!
Mud Pie Monogram Necklaces
These gold bar necklaces are so trendy right now! You will see them flipping through your desired fashion magazines, as well as on your favorite celebs. A matte gold bar embellished with an engraved single initial hangs perfectly on a 16” chain. We were hoping that this product would speak to our younger customers. Plus, this is a must-have for any wardrobe because ‘darling, you’re never fully dressed without a monogram!’
The Flutter Shawl was bought with opportunity in mind. Can you believe that you can wear this one piece of clothing eight different ways? This product takes travel to a whole new level because you can pack the Flutter Shawl and wear if for multiple occasions. It is great for women of all ages with its silky feel and fun style! Versatility sealed the deal for this product.
Accessories make the woman, and Spartina 449 makes it fun! We liked the variety that Spartina had to offer for their spring collection this year. Dainty pieces mixed with statement pieces and everything in between. You can mix and match the petite necklaces for a trendy look that is very popular with our younger audience. Spartina also offers a great selection of handbags that are perfect for traveling, date night, or a fun night out with the girls! We always spend a little extra time picking out accessories because they really do complete the outfit! Thanks to Spartina, these decisions were made easily.
North Country Wind Bells
These wind chimes are truly a unique product. They sound different than regular ordinary wind chimes and reminded us of different surroundings. With that in mind, when the wind catches these unique and well-designed bells, the lovely tones made us feel like we were sitting in a beach chair near the harbor. Perfect for any beach house or any beach-lover who wants to be reminded of the beach any and every day of the year!
As a garden center, we care about the environment and sustainability. This product spoke to our roots and mission as a business. Bees, and other important insects, are crucial to our food chain. They aid in pollination, which is only one reason we should keep them close and safe. Insect houses and hotels were a flawless match to our Bird Department, not only for their functionality, but for their aesthetics as well!
Hand-blown glass is always something that catches our eye. It is so colorful, so unique, and no two pieces are alike. Hummingbird feeders are a delightful part of spring because they are essential in providing the energy needed for the birds to fly. So, by hanging these feeders in our yards, we get to watch these Flying Jewels dance around the pretty speckled glass. This year, we picked multiple styles of feeders that are each special in their own right.
While these are just a few of the newest products that you will find around Bucks Country Gardens, there are many more to discover. Look for Chart Metal Works, Sherry Tinsman, Troutman Chair, Cohasset Wind Chimes, S’well, Corkcicle, and more!
