Drum roll, please…it’s finished! The “gettin’ ready” part of our Anniversary Season is over (okay, maybe we haven’t quite finished the tile backsplash over the sink but we will, we promise.) Mary did such an amazing job designing and managing this installation. After 10 years, she was right; it was time. Doesn’t it look pretty?

Loll furniture in new front corner.
We started with opening up the wall between the front of the old store and the back storage/work area. It almost doubled the size of the store.
Old Fermob Wall.
This is what the wall looked like before we took it down.
Looking to the back of the store.
And here’s what it looks like now!
Looking from the back to front.
Here’s the reverse angle. It’s so bright now.
Hedge Planters and Heather Rosenman Birdhouses
The pass we created is a great place to feature new hanging planters and birdhouses.
The raised platform is a perfect place to showcase new products. Here we have a Fermob Sixties Set.
New Fermob Wall.
In fact a lot of the reason for doing the remodel was so we could finally become a Principal Partner with Fermob. We so love this furniture line and now we finally have more room to show more product.
City Planters with Air Plants.
Another view on the platform of two City Planters. This was a fun planting using woodland twigs and air plants. Super easy.
Sign over register.
We have a fancy new sign over the cash wrap (which has moved.)
The new grey wood walls are just beautiful to show off all our lovely designer planters. Those Tentacle Planters are pretty crazy, aren’t they?
Glass Star Candle Holders.
Having more space gives us room to showcase all sorts of new items.
Vintage Baby Bodies and Skull Planter.
In all the styles we love to show. So excited the Skull Planters are now available in this gorgeous bronze. And the Vintage Baby Bodies…not too many left!
Succulents in the yard.
We still have a wonderful selection of succulents and other drought tolerant, container-friendly plants.
Vintage trucks we often use for plantings featuring our ever growing selection of jewelry.
Personal accessories area.
Butterfly Chairs in the new clothing and personal accessories area.
Woolly Pocket Wall.
The only thing I added to the whole project was this Woolly Pocket installation. I’ve been wanting to do one of these inside for a long time. I love the light the new skylight adds to the room.

And here we are getting our pictures taken for the LA Times article that should be out this Saturday. This was the coolest. Our 15 minutes of fame.
So please come see the store for yourself. We have lots of new things coming in for the holidays and we are excited and honored to be able to share them with you, our wonderful customers.
