I have a deep appreciation for craftspeople who make everyday things of necessity and some of art.
Hand-crafted items tend to endure the test of time, by intention of design, or accidentally. The Gulf Coast shares the tradition of self reliance described in a phrase I often heard when I was younger:
“Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.”
Recycling was not a term we used, but it was an everyday practice to not throw away things which could possibly be repaired, nor things which could be used for another purpose.

Town and Beach offers:
“Lillipots”… lilliputian-style gardens planted in vintage glass, metal and ceramic containers!
The succulent plants that we use in our planters make beautiful and easy-to-care-for mini-gardens. These will look great on your kitchen windowsill, or your any spot where you want to enjoy seeing a real plant.
We’ll even create dish gardens in your own containers! Choose an antique teacup or a formal sugarbowl. We’ll suggest a few ideas or you can pick out a decorative fill and the plants you like best.
“Tabbytufa”…planters like you’ve never seen before, each one hand-made from oyster shells and volcanic rock. Ideal for succulents.
“Baysticks”….driftwood from Mobile Bay sold in bulk and made into tabletop trees and sculpture.
