Holiday Gift Guide

Click on the picture to see "Harper's Holiday Picks" in a larger view! We have many gifts to fit any price-range. Hopefully this gives you some ideas for your last-minute gifts! Grab stocking stuffers in the $5-$10 range such as lip balm & soaps or go all out for a friend or family member (or yourself) with this awesome card catalog table at $265. E-mail us at with any questions or if you would like to put something on hold. If you are on our mailing list, a special coupon will be coming your way very soon!

When in doubt, don't forget you can always send flowers! Call Ginko Studios @ (616) 454-5575. Mari can make something beautiful, festive, and unique to fit your price-range. You can arrange for pick-up OR delivery! Additionally, Mari works with local farmers/companies, so shopping with her supports a number of local businesses.

Thank You + Opening + Disney


Thank you so much to the family and friends who helped us turn the store over in two days this weekend. Even though we are not opening until Thursday, I (Kelley) left for Disney World on Sunday afternoon. 12 people can do a lot in just 2 days, let me tell you. We are beyond grateful for all of the emotional & physical support this weekend (and throughout this entire process). We are also overwhelmed by all of the love and comments we received on our website and Facebook page over the weekend. We were quite busy, but I hope to keep up with replying back and making sure you all know that we are seeing it & feeling it! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Just a reminder- GRAND OPENING PAR-TAY this Thursday, December 6th starting at 4pm. We will have homemade cookies, cupcakes, and prizes... additionally, the fabulous Mari (Ginko Studios) will be selling some winter greens/arrangements. Please stop by, make a wish list, and shop local (all the great shops around here will be open late!)

I have been hesitating to put up major pictures of the overall space, because I want it to be a surprise; however, here are a few teasers:


Finally, I leave you with some pictures from Disney. Why? Because it is magical here, and I want to share that magic with you (also, the scenery is just beautiful).
