Jim and Katie Gardiner's story: "Our story started in 2013 when we opened an Etsy shop and began selling rustic table runners and gift & favor bags for special events, weddings, holidays and baby showers.We wanted to expand what we loved about rustic decor and decided to open a physical location in 2017.

We enjoy featuring Etsy artists and crafters and you'll find plenty of products from Etsy artists from throughout the US. You'll also find other products not found on Etsy that round out our product mix.

As a rustic home & gift shop we are excited to become a part of the Windsor community!"
