Think outside the box with this planter. Not only will it look fabulous with a a big leafy fern, it will also serve purpose fabulously as a catchall for towels, toys, magazines and even garden tools. Only two in stock...

Garden Gnome

Am I the only one who likes garden gnomes? I think not. Every garden, whether manicured or wildly overgrown, deserves a gnome to keep watch over the bugs and birds. This little fella is named Toby. He is actually made of paper mache and would be happiest nestled in some greenery on your covered porch or inside your home.
Meet Toby's friend and mentor, Fred. Fred may look a little strange but he's a good egg with a sardonic sense of humor. He too is made of paper mache. These two gnomes are waiting for good homes.

Social Media

Summer Projects.
1. Face Book
2. Website
3. Instagram
4. Pintrest
5. Shopping for season
6. Lots and lots of margaritas....

Help! As a small business, it is important to get as much free advertising as possible and in this age of Social Media, I have made it my mission to try to figure it all out. Help! If anyone out there has any tips or advice, I would welcome a visit from you. Once I get a handle on it, we will be offering all kinds of specials and deals so please stay tuned. Also, we are going shopping in July so if there is something you would like to see us carry, now would be a great time to let us know. We ALWAYS welcome ALL feedback from our customers. After all, we are here for you. This is as much your store as ours.

The Scrimshaws head back to their Key West home this morning with baby Flamingo in their bike basket.
Yesterday they purchased Mama Flamingo but she must have looked a bit lonely with her baby. Thank you Scrimshaws!

It has been a long time since Cottage has posted anything on social media but now that summer is here we hope to have more time. We also are in the process of updating our website at

The website is tricky as we try to buy unique items in limited quantities so that not everyone is buying the same product. Our customers have come to learn that if they like something, they should get it when they see it because odds are that it wont be in the store when they come back in. We will try to add as many of our products to the website as possible and as always, please feel free to call if you saw something in the shop that is not on the site. 

Please visit often and feedback is always welcome.

Thank you for supporting Cottage, an independent local business!
