We can show you how to turn your yard into a birdfeeding habitat that brings song, color and life to your home.

Birdbaths offer consistent and diverse bird activity

As usual for late fall, bird feeder activity is all over the place with some yards seeing mixed flocks including Chipping Sparrow, American Goldfinch, Baltimore Oriole, and more and other yards seeing very little feeder activity at all.  On average, the feeder activity has been good throughout the fall and winter is setting up nicely, too, but birdbaths are offering much greater consistency and diversity.  With nearly two months now since the last soaking rain and December looking to be very dry, water is becoming increasingly scarce in every bird's habitat.  Birdbaths are likely to be very, very active.  Visit our website and ourFacebook and YouTube pages to see videos of birds coming to our birdbath.

Progressive Sale - December 26th - 31st

Stop in early for the greatest selection.
Stop in later for the greatest savings.

At the end of each year, we always have a few things left over. We like to start fresh in the new year and make room for the great finds we dig up at market in January.

We aren’t talking about politics or taxes. We call it the progressive sale, because with each day the savings get progressively greater. The selected sale items will be 20% off on December 26 and the discount increases by 10% every day. So, by December 31st, all sale items are 70% off!
If there is something you like, you have to decide if it’s worth the risk of waiting for the greater discount because it might be gone!
