What You'll Get
The term bric-a-brac can describe decorated tea cups, statuettes, small vases, and a variety of small gifts that can be stuffed into stockings on Christmas in July. Fill summertime socks with knickknacks with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gifts, home décor, and more at Birch St. House & Garden, in Roslindale.
Birch St. House & Garden’s comfy, crowded confines are packed with fair-trade tchotchkes, whimsical housewares, and other quirky products. Gift a pair of Vance Kitira pear candles ($7 each) to a dinner-party hostess, or use a bottle opener ($13) and wine-bottle stopper ($16) to release, then retrap the powerful genie living inside your chardonnay. Handicraft hankerers can handle wood pens, crafted by a local 14-year-old artisan, and Haitian ornaments carved from recycled oil drums. After checkout, bundle shiny-new swag inside eco-friendly Envirosax reuseable shopping bags ($9.50) for easy transport back to your outer-space tree-house or underwater man-cave.
- It takes a while to fully peruse the walls, glass shelves, and wood tabletops stocked with candles, incense, pottery, kitchen towels, woven scarves, baskets, cards, toys, accent furniture, locally-made jewelry and paintings, and fair-trade objects from Africa, India, and Guatemala. – Necee Regis, the Boston Globe
- Great place to go for a gift or to treat yourself – Delia D., Yelp, 5/13/10
