Celebrate her with a thoughtful card - we have a great selection of Mother's Day greeting cards right now, so don't delay. May we also recommend a beautiful sheet of floral gift wrap? If you are looking for a gift of appreciation, consider perusing our shelves. We have new books, soaps, gadgets, housewares and many other unexpected necessities!

After selecting just the right card, please consider picking up an origami bird, it would look great on a wrapped package!

We talk alot about shopping local, and we also make sure to shop locally, both for products we use in our stores and also products we sell. Some of these products are currently spotlighted in our windows, and although we do not sell Fluff, we do have the ultimate book about Fluff - written by Mimi Graney, originator of the What the Fluff Festival in Somerville!
