Father’s Day Gifts
Remember Dad this Sunday, June 16th with something special from Birch St. House & Garden. The Fenway Park DAD photos are ba
ck. If you missed out last year, we have a number of framed photos on hand this year.
If Dad is a Sox fan, we also have locally made Fenway Park signs and 4-coaster sets made of imported Italian marble and screen printed with vintage Fenway Park on them. Plus, a portion of the proceeds from the coasters goes to Boston’s the One Fund .
New this summer, we have 2-coaster sets with a sketch of the Boston skyline. By purchasing this set, you are also supporting The One Fund.
Other ideas include:
- Leather wallet or money clip
- Key rings
- Abbey Road Studios coaster set
- Gardening gloves, tool kit, planters
- Other photos by Tom Fletcher, including the Pabst sign, Weirs Beach, Orange T
- Mugs, and much more.
- Oh, and don’t forget a card! We have a wide selection of Father’s Day cards.
Movin’ on Up
If you’ve been in the store over the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed something askew. This year I’ve been working with Main Street Partners, a nonprofit consulting firm whose mission is to help small businesses grow and improve their processes. One of the outcomes is a new point-of-sale system designed and manufactured by Leaf, a Cambridge company.
This new system allows me to better track my inventory with the goal of making even better purchasing choices for Birch St. House & Garden. And the fact that the company is based locally also weighed in heavily on my decision to implement their system.
Thank you for your patience as we got up-to-speed with our new system. We are blessed to have amazing customers like yourself.
Third Thursday Art Opening June 20th, 6-9PM
Our Third Thursday event for the evening of June 20th is two-part. First, we are pleased to welcome Roslindale artist and resident Ann Turley to Birch St. House & Garden for the summer.
Ann, who has worked with a variety of media, is currently focusing on oil landscapes. Ann will debut her collection of seascape and Arboretum landscape framed prints on Thursday, June 20th from
6-8PM. Her work will then stay up through the end of August.
Second, we are joining forces with other Roslindale Village businesses this evening who are supporting the One Fund Boston. Between 6 and 9PM on the 20th, we will donate 10% of our sales to the One Fund. So, please, come ready to shop and know that you are helping our community neighbors, family members, coworkers and friends who were affected by the tragic events on Marathon Monday.
Vote for Us!
The polls are open for the WGBH-sponsored Boston A-List. We are nominated for Best Home Goods store in Boston. Please consider voting for us.
While voting, many other Roslindale businesses are nominated for “Best of” in their categories. I know they would appreciate your support as well.
