Visit the Country Store
New items are arriving weekly, so stop by and see the new displays. Gardeners would like the colorful gardening tote filled with small tools or a gardening calendar and journal. Another new item is the insulated wine and cheese cooler to take to an outdoor concert or picnic. There's a wide variety of bags—from small evening purses to large totes. Be sure to see the new purse organizer which can
be easily switched from one handbag to another or carried on its own.
Are you looking for a special gift for an upcoming birthday, wedding, or anniversary? Perhaps you would like to update your wardrobe with a new necklace or colorful scarf. Do you need a small hostess gift or a unique centerpiece? If so, look no farther than the Country Store which is located off the main hallway in Wagner Terrace.
The store carries a wide variety of home decorating items—pillows, pitchers and vases, placemats and napkins, dish towels, small bowls and cheese boards, baskets, serving platters and trays, picture frames, and candles, lanterns, and small lamps. The designs will go with a variety of decorating styles—from natural colors and floral prints to bright greens and blues for a splash of color.
There's even a corner filled with children's items—a variety of stuffed animals, books, puzzles, and piggy banks.Don't overlook the selection of jewelry in the cases... the soaps and lotions in the corner... the colorful reading glasses on display... and the many greeting cards.
The Country Store is run by the Noble Horizons Auxiliary. Filled with reasonably priced items, it's a hidden gem in our community.
