I love this place with my whole heart. You don’t find a collection of this value often. The plants are incredible and brings me so much joy. Great place to visit

The couple running the antique shop seems very kind. The shop itself is crowded but absolutely covered in all kinds of interesting things. There is a spectacular variety of plants in the greenhouse that are well cared for. I will definitely come back at some point. Edit: I've bought an antique bed frame from this place, it's lovely though a bit beat up. It was considerably cheap for something so old but likely due to the condition it's in. I plan to restore the bed.

Omg this place is magical. I felt like I was in a forest. So many beautiful, happy, flowering plants, a glorious maze of green, and that earthy smell that gives a gardener those warm fuzzies. I felt at home and in awe of such a magical place that from the outside looks so nondescript. Inside the store, we found amazing treasures, unique, delicate and fun snapshots of an older time that reminded me of warm memories and people I loved who are now gone. I will absolutely be going back to buy gifts and plants for myself. Their selection is phenomenal and so unique I was speechless while there. The space is packed with experiences you can only know firsthand.

The outside is unassuming, but the inside is an absolutely gorgeous, floor-to-ceiling display of beautiful antiques. From glassware to typewriters, kitchenware and even toy pop guns, looking around from area to area can reveal something new every time! The inside smells like nostalgia and feels like a liminal space, but a safe one. The proprietors are a lovely couple who are very happy to help customers. The greenhouse side has many lovely flourishing succulents and plants, and smells so sweet and fresh just looking at the flowers can make one's day. I'll be sure to go back to this beautiful, hidden-away antique shop. Some of the items we found were absolutely priceless!

This place is amazing! The inside is absolutely PACKED with antiques wall to wall. It smells like heaven! The garden center is amazing as well! The woman that helped me find marigolds was so polite and seemed like a genuinely nice person. I tried to tip her and she wouldn't take my money! She said to spread the word instead, so that's what I'm doing! This was my first visit, but it won't be my last! If you like antiques and gardening and you haven't yet shopped here, do yourself a favor and head down today!
