Our Story

Hello, we are Jack & Jana Qualey.  We moved to Burlington, Vermont from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina (what?? who does that??) where we raised our two children, practiced real estate law for 41 years, and opened Bluffton General Store.  We moved to downtown Burlington to be closer to family (especially our 5 year old granddaughter), to slow down to enjoy the journey, and to enjoy the natural beauty of Vermont.

We love flowers!! We love community, The Intervale Center, the mountains, all the great food sourced from local farms, walking for miles all over Burlington, maple creemees, and sunsets over Lake Champlain.

Together, with the help of our daughter, Megan, we have curated a shop that we feel is a good fit for downtown Burlington.  The shop is brimming with inspiring goods for your home or for gift giving.  We strive for each item to have a garden or nature inspired theme and you will also find lots of uplifting words of encouragement scattered about the shop. 

Thanks so much for browsing our online store.  We also hope you will come visit us in our brick & mortar shop at 206 College Street in Burlington, Vermont.
