Great Garden Gadgets
Neat garden gadgets and decorations to add garden whimsy to your yard!
Although Crocs™ Shoes are available all over the world, for folks in southern Anne Arundel County, it seemed like you had to travel really afar to get a pair or two. We listened to our customers requests to carry Crocs™ Shoes and started carrying the line in the summer of 2006. By the end of the first week, there was hardly a sole in sight! Kids, “tweeners”, teens, college students, moms, dads, workers, grandparents, and families love coming to our place for their Crocs™ Shoes. Our selection and our inventory are extensive as we regularly receive the latest styles and sizes. These shoes are both functional and fashionable at the same time – you gotta love ‘em!
New to our spring/summer collection are: MaryJane, Otter, Malinda, Santa Cruz, Sassari, Canvas Capri, Adara, Cleo, Yukon.
What started out as a boating / outdoor shoe, quickly became a bona-fide phenomenon; an all-purpose shoe for comfort and fashion. They are lightweight, comfortable, slip-resistant, and moderately priced so everyone in the family can wear them. Folks of all ages, occupations, hobbies, and lifestyles can always find a pair to suit their needs or pleasures. And how about the color selection? Whether you are matching an outfit or wanting to stay with a traditional solid, you can find just about any color on the palette.
Crocs™ Shoes e-x-p-a-n-ding product line now includes bracelets, backpacks, and clothing. And no Crocs™ Shoes product is complete without Jibbitz™ Shoe Charms decorations. These snap-on charms can change with the season. Today, there are over 1100 Jibbitz™ Shoe Charms designs and we carry thousands of them. Gee, I wonder what Crocs™ Shoes will come up with next.
Chamilia™ – where you create your own classic or trendy bracelet, necklace or anklet with beads of the finest quality of sterling silver, 14k gold, and Swarovski crystals. Every piece is stamped to ensure industry standard of 92.5% silver or 14k gold. Each bead is handmade and each bead is solid with no plating. The name Chamilia is a feminized word for “Chameleon”, which means the ability to change with the environment and adapt to surroundings. A chameleon is an exotic animal that can take on a variety of appearances. What a perfect name for jewelry that you can add or change as you wish, with a totally different look each time you wear your piece.
Chamilia Designer Killian Rieder’s passion comes from the fact that every single person who wears Chamilia IS the designer of his or her own jewelry. Having worked years in the fashion industry, Ms. Rieder transferred her skills and passion to Chamilia. Killian finds inspiration in things that have added meaning in her life and the lives of her customers. Be a designer of your own jewelry with Chamilia. When you combine beads, you create your own unique look, your own story. Select from the thousands of beads – symbols, flowers, animals, zodiac signs, Disney, birthstones and more. Start with one and add; the combinations are endless.
Chamilia’s manufacture has over 35 years experience – only the highest quality of sterling silver, 14k gold and Swarovski crystals are used to craft individual beads. The Gold and Silver pieces are very popular and add “mixed” elegance to your bracelet.
Chamilia’s “Give-Back Program” donates a portion of it’s’ proceeds to selected charities when you purchase specific beads. Their company headquarters in Minneapolis, MN will continue this practice of giving back and we like that Chamilia partners with worthy organizations.
