Fri., Nov. 23 (Green Friday) through Sun., Dec. 23
Open Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday
10 am to 5 pm
Green Friday is almost here! We’re just putting the finishing touches on the big transformation, turning our down-home garden store into a magical marketplace for the best holiday shopping experience ever! We call it Green Friday because we feature the most sustainable products from artisans who not only create beauty, but also care deeply about treading lightly and making a positive impact on this precious planet of ours. They reuse and recycle, offer great natural alternatives to plastic and other synthetic materials, promote reverence for the wonders of nature, the processes and players that make it all happen, and open our eyes to viewpoints and details we not have noticed or encountered before. And this is the time of year when most artisans make the bulk of their annual income. As always, we offer goods that are Local, Sustainable, Pure, Non-toxic, High-quality, Beautiful, Unusual, Innovative, Practical, Delightful and Durable. And importantly, your purchases help keep the wealth in our local economy.
This year we’re featuring the wonderful craftsmanship of nearly 100 artisans, local and regional – even adding new artists this week! Our artisans and their products are profiled in our Holiday Market Catalog, which we emailed last weekend, or click here for our website listing. We appreciate your sharing our catalog with all of your friends and family! We would love to see you this weekend, Green Friday through Sunday at our very special OPEN HOUSE! See details below.
Harlequin‘s Gardens is wishing you a calm, peaceful, and bountiful Thanksgiving shared with people you love! We have much to be thankful for this year, foremost being your steadfast patronage, the increase in our community’s commitment to sustainable gardening, and the boundless energy of our owners and staff to bring our nursery to fruition. Thank you so very much!
