Melamine Plates
“They’re not paper!”
With the look of paper plates, these whimsical melamine plates have been flying off the shelves since we got them in. These quality pieces are dishwasher safe, and McDonald Garden Center has the highly sought-after patterns that are selling out online and at other retailers. Keep in mind, we can’t guarantee your favorites will be there - so shop it like it’s hot! Starting at $19.99

Scarfs, Hats & Socks
“The Weekend Collection”
So yeah, it may still be a teensy bit warm outside…but we are already dreaming of these super soft, super cute knit scarfs with matching knit hats. From the World’s Softest Socks Company, based out of Niota, Tennessee, this line of fall gear is all about fashionable, cozy comfort with socks, that many say, are like, “walking on clouds.” Starting at $9.99

…We can almost smell the pumpkin spice lattes and cinnamon candles

Enamelware Dishes - Blue Crab and Old Bay
There’s just something about these blue crab and old bay pieces that brings a sense of nostalgia to the kitchen. Old Bay, the diamond dust of the Chesapeake Bay, sets the tone of tantalizing tastes while the Blue Crab embodies everything we love about the Hampton Roads area. Hand-dipped and fired, this dishwasher safe cookware is made of carbon steel-coated porcelain-enamel and trimmed in stainless steel. Starting at $9.99

These are sure to be a treasured heirloom for generations to enjoy.

Metal Pumpkins
We are obsessed with these stylish and high quality metal pumpkins! Perfect as a statement piece, or versatile enough to fit into an overall concept, they are the quintessential must-have for fall décor. Starting at $9.99

Looking for a whole theme? We’ve just launched our Autumn 2016-17 collection at all three year-round locations with pumpkin stakes, lanterns, wheat wreaths, and everything from classic to quirky.

New Rubber Duck Glycerin Soaps
These adorable little quackers made a splash in our office the minute we laid eyes on them! Made in the USA, these duck soaps feature rubber duck toys swimming happily in fruity-fragranced, naturally-moisturizing glycerin soap. $8.99 each

Washing your hands has never been more endearing! Fun Fact: If visit our Chesapeake location, you may see how we have a certain affinity for these fine feathered friends.

New Local Wall Décor Scenes
You don’t have to be a Hampton Roads native to appreciate the beauty of our cities. The 757 has something special - perhaps the blending of the beauty of the coast with the richness of our country’s history. We like to think it’s the melting pot of residents who landed here from area codes of their own. Either way, this line of wall décor is the perfect way to honor the pride of living in our 7 cities. With iconic images from Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Hampton, these high quality boards can be used indoors or outdoors in a covered area and are manufactured and designed in Raleigh, North Carolina! Starting at $24.99

It’s a sign of good taste.
