continued There are home décor offerings such as wall hangings, picture frames, 19th century-style mirrors, antique-style postcards and some “shabby chic” items. Foxgloves also sells handmade cards by local artist Kimberly Cooper and by Kendrick.
Kendrick also wants to offer items that emphasize “branding” Cazenovia, such as cloth tote bags that say “Cazenovia” and have flowers drawn or stamped on them, and eventually potential items such as gift baskets or locally-made soaps.
“I’m here to promote Caz — Cazenovia has its own vintage,” she said. “I love what we’re becoming, there’s great stuff in town that’s different. I’m so excited to be here.”
While Foxgloves has been open for more than one month, Kendrick is still putting the finishing touches to it —including waiting for her permanent store sign — and, since she will offer seasonal flowers and arrangements, is already thinking ahead to Autumn styles and offerings.
Foxgloves is open 9:30 a.m.to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday and Monday by appointment only.
