First Blog Ever!

Welcome to the Garden Cottage Key West blog! We are a small, quaint retail shop located at 526 Southard Street in gorgeous Key West, Florida where it is possible to garden year round! Lucky us! We carry an eclectic mix of merchandise. Everything from Heirloom Seeds to refurbished "Conch House" window frames. Its hard to describe so you will have to pop in to see for yourself! Our hours are daily from 10-6 except for Sundays when we close at 4:00pm.

My name is Dominique Barrera and I operate the shop along with my business partner and friend, Laurie McChesney. We have a lovely third wheel by the name of Snow Philip and if you come in on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays you will get to meet her.

The Garden Cottage opened full time just this past October and already we have been bowled over by the generosity and kindness of the local community. A big thank you to each and every person who has stopped into our shop. We thrive on all of the positive feedback we have received.

My goal with this blog is to keep everyone informed of the way the shop progresses. I will introduce new merchandise as we get new things in all the time. Hopefully we will be able to hold some fundraisers here and find ways to give back to the community we so dearly love.

So thank you for reading the first ever blog from The Garden Cottage. Happy gardening!
