Save Big at Our Summer Sidewalk Sale

The Spartina 449 collection will be 50% off during the sale, and although I can’t reveal too much more now, know that many additional items throughout the store will have those tempting red dots on them, indicating reduced pricing up to 50% off.

And, yes, there will be a sidewalk sale section. As many of you know, this section is stocked with odds and ends at basement bargain prices.

SAVE even more by clipping the coupon at the bottom of this email. Take an additional 5% off your total purchase. 

Shop early; shop often all weekend long. Many of my neighbors are holding their summer sales this weekend as well.

Back-to-School Shopping Starts Here

Lunch Time  Start your back-to-school shopping at Birch St. House & Garden and save. This year, I’ve selected two collections of lunchboxes, water bottles and snack boxes from Crocodile Creek. When you purchase the set of three, receive 10% off now through the end of August.


Back-to-School Trunk Show  On Saturday, August 9, come down between 10AM and 1PM to shop our Back-to-School Trunk Show, featuring the return of locally made school essentials, such as snack bags, pencil pouches and schoolwork portfolios.

Debuting at the trunk show, is a line of British inspired clothing and accessories. After hopping across the pond with her family, Proof designer Meg Skaar came down with a touch of British Invasion fever. I caught a glimpse of her Union Jack fabrics today and cannot wait to get my hands on a wristlet or two, plus a dress for my niece, who heads off to preschool this fall.

Friday Evening in Roslindale Village — Meet the Artist: Michael Dean

SunburstCloudburstI’m so excited to welcome a new artist to Birch St. House & Garden for the summer! Please help me welcome Michael Dean, a North End resident with ties to Roslindale by way of his brother, to Roslindale.

You’re invited to come out this Friday, June 6th from 6-9PM for an evening of art and conversation at the opening reception for Michael. While his work will be on display and available for sale through the end of July, Friday is your opportunity to meet the artist and learn what inspires him to paint.

The shop also happens to be a great meeting place before or after dinner al fresco at one of four amazing restaurants in the square — all with outdoor dining. Choose from Sophia’s Grotto (which just won Best in Boston for Al Fresco Dining), Birch St. Bistro, Village Sushi or Redd’s in Rozzie.

RVMS Farmers’ Market Opens Saturday (6/7)

farmersmarketWe’ve waited and waited, not always so patiently, for six-and-a-half month, but this weekend the wait is over!

The 2014 season of Roslindale Village Main Street Farmers Market opens this Saturday at 9:30AM. Go to or facebook for a list of happenings.  

And, if you find yourself waking up on Saturday morning, realizing you missed my most awesome Meet the Artist Opening, be sure to stop in Saturday. We couldn’t be more conveniently located to the market this season — just across the street from the MBTA lot. Really, how can you not drop in? 

Meet the Artist: Michael Dean

Please join me Friday, June 6th for an evening of art and conversation at the opening reception for our newest artist Michael Dean, a North End resident with ties to Roslindale.

SunburstCloudburstMichael is a (mostly) self-taught oil painter whose early childhood was spent in the beautiful seaside artists’ colony of Rockport in a family of artists, and with aspiring painters as the chosen boarders living in the upstairs apartment.

A wide selection of Michael’s smaller, framed (mostly) landscapes and still-life oil paintings will be on display and for sale at Birch St. House & Garden in Roslindale, starting on June 6th with a wine reception where you can meet the artist, and then continuing through to the end of July. Michael certainly hopes to see you at the reception!

Michael’s work will be on display and available for sale through the end of July. Don’t miss this opportunity to add a new piece of original artwork to your collection.
