Known for our beautiful copper roof birdhouses that are handcrafted in North Carolina (and available for purchase online). We carry birdhouses specifically for Purple Martins, Bluebirds, Wrens, and many options that are more generic for a variety of birds to enjoy.

We also have a nice selection of handcrafted poly and rustic birdhouses and feeders, colorful birdbaths, hummingbird feeders, and home and garden accessories which include windchimes, replica lighthouses, spinners, rain chains, metal art, etc.


Our spring/summer plant selection typically includes flowering and foliage tropicals (mandevillas, plumbago, palms, hibiscus, ixora, mexican petunia, ferns, monstera, alocasia, etc), “local” plants (confederate jasmine, camellia, gardenia, hydrangea, etc) along with mixed flower pots, hanging baskets, geraniums, air plants and succulents. We also sell unique herbs that include lavender, rosemary, mint, lemongrass, and more.

We are happy to do special orders for plants that we don’t carry in stock, please call ahead (252) 491-8696.

Cut Flowers & Produce

In 2019 we started selling produce that we grow using organic farming methods. Our main crop is sweet potatoes, which we have readily available October-January. In 2020 we added a cut flower garden and sold our fresh bouquets at the Dowdy Park Farmers Market in Nags Head and at Green Acres Produce Market in Duck. We plan to continue growing some produce and selling cut flower bouquets. In 2022 we will open our second location, it’s more of a “mini store”, located at The Waterfront Shops in Duck, and it will showcase some of our favorite birdhouses, wind chimes, spinners, and more.


Our shop is a small, family-owned and operated business that opened in 2004 on property that has been in our family since the 1800’s. Our “store” is actually the house that my great grandfather built for his family in 1892.

He had eleven children and was a farmer as well as a crew member at the U.S. Life Saving Service Station at Kitty Hawk.
