{verdigreen} – your #shoplocal source for goodness

For those just finding us, welcome!

We just returned from Florida where this was our view

and coming back to reality hit like a ton of bricks! The good news is we love what we do and we love being a part of the Montclair community so coming back to “work” was no biggie…but we have lots of dreams and plans for {verdigreen} and now is the time to get down to business!

We opened our Montclair brick & mortar shop in October ’13 and have been growing/evolving ever since. Our goal is to offer a complete experience rather than just a shopping trip. We would love to become a Montclair mainstay destination and we’ve made strides in that direction by offering workshops, craft nights, Free Fridays (our wine and cheese with live music events), custom painting, and Kids’ classes. We seeked out other Etsians and local artists to showcase their work in our shop. Our true love is to bring to light all the local talent – musicians, artists, chefs & bakers, makers of any kind – and support them in their venture just as the town has been supporting us.

We got our start on Etsy, selling vintage home decor and redesigned furniture so that is still the foundation of our business at the shop. However we have ventured out into carrying a few of the products we use for those of you who are more DIY-minded so you will find an entire area dedicated to Weekend Warriors. 🙂 We carry every product by the fabulous Annie Sloan, including her Chalk Paint® and wax and brushes and fragrance and fabric and… We carry French Gilding Waxes to fancify your projects. We also are placing orders for stencils, knobs, and other finishes so we can become a one-stop creativity shop.

For those of you who aren’t interested in furnishings (well, I never!) we also have a wide variety of gifts and other home goods – almost all of it made locally or else a part of my edited vintage collection. We have the most delicious private label candles from Domestic Goddess, felt placemats and vessels from felt.by RG, vintage paper garlands by Montclair Made, gorgeous decorator pillows by The Pillow Studio, hand crafted soaps and mason jar soap dispensers by Bowered & Bare, and the list goes on. Currently, there are five artists in residence with fine art from an “affordable to statement” price range for sale – ALL artists reside in Montclair.

I’ve already written more than I intended but I really wanted to convey how lucky we are to live in a town full of so much talent and ability. We are inspired daily by our customers, our vendors and friends who all contribute to the #shoplocal lifestyle we are committed to. We hope to see you in the shop!
