Everyone loves our Folkmanis Puppets! Each season, our volunteer gift shop manager selects hand and finger puppets that represent the native flora and fauna of our region including, bears, birds, rabbits, skunks, possums – you name it. These snugly toys charm people of all ages.


We have a nature card for every occasion, including these elegant Saturn Press cards from Swan’s Island, Maine. Saturn press typesets their cards by hand on high-stock, recycled paper with an antique letter press. Each card measures 5″ x 7″ and comes with a plastic protective sleeve.

A note about sales solicitations:

If you would like for us to consider stocking your product, please email product details to us at bgardens@bellsouth.net. You may also leave a non-returnable sample with your complete contact information and product wholesale price at the front desk during office hours.

We will pass product solicitations on to our volunteer gift shop manager. However, due to her large workload and limited hours, she will contact you ONLY if she is interested in your product. Our gift shop manager is a volunteer and does not keep regular hours. We do not give out her phone number or email address.

We never offer products on consignment.
