The Garden Shop
Open during Garden Hours
Lakewold’s Garden Shop supports the mission of Lakewold Garden through enhancing the visitor experience while generating a modest return on the operations.
Lakewold’s Garden Shop will create a warm and inviting environment while pursuing a garden focused theme and promoting Lakewold’s history. Showcasing unique plants and quality tools from largely local sources, the Shop will be a destination for community gardeners. Enhanced by garden books and Lakewold themed gift items and souvenirs, the casual and out of town visitor will find suitable items to remember their experience.
The Garden Shop is located inside to Lakewold Gardens in the original 1918 Carriage House. Visitors will find unique gift items, quality garden tools, a wide assortment of garden-related books and a large inventory of plants. Visit often as inventory changes regularly.
Can Your Garden Books Benefit Lakewold Gardens?
We suspect there are lots of books out there collecting dust or taking up valuable space. Sound familiar? If so, please consider donating your gently-used garden books to Lakewold Gardens, to be included in our new Garden Shop book bin, for sale to members and visitors! We will add your books to our popular used garden book bin where prices are inexpensive, with proceeds going directly back to Lakewold for important projects and programs. In the event a book is unique to Lakewold’s permanent collection, housed in the O’Rourke Library (off the foyer of the Wagner House) we would catalog your book into the library. Your book would add to the experience of Lakewold as a valuable resource material. In either case, your gently used garden and garden-related books will further our mission! In the event that we are unable to use a book in the garden book bin or the O’Rourke Library, we’ll pass it along to another non-profit organization.
Please consider donating those seldom-used volumes --- garden and garden-related only, please --- to Lakewold Gardens. Each donor will have the opportunity to read and sign a standard release specific to your gift, and that, with your release, Lakewold may price the volumes for sale or determine otherwise. Books should be delivered to Lakewold’s Garden Shop, where release forms are available. For tax purposes, each donor will receive a letter acknowledging their donation to The Friends of Lakewold within 10 days of donation. Thank You for your generous gift!
