THE SAVVY SHOPPER
A peaceful place!
Enter Annie's Garden and hear the peaceful sound of water tinkling from the many fountains. You will find fountains of every shape and size, from small table top fountains to huge, many tiered fountains. They do installations, they installed the very large fountain at Ava Maria.
Speaking to Edward Jordat, the manager who by the way loves his job! Told me they have been in business for 4 years and have products from all over the world. He was very proud of the inventory both in the store and out in the court yard. Besides the many fountains they carry patio furniture and unique potteries. If you don't see what you are looking for they have a huge warehouse with a lot more inventory.
There are garden sculptures to choose from and wall art for outside. They carry marble, bronze and cast stone pieces.
The big assortment of pottery comes from Greece, Japan, Asia, China and Spain. I loved the beautiful huge pot at $479. The do come in all sizes and colors.
There are copper wall fountains for indoors but the majority were for outdoors. In the court yard was a four seasons fountain with a twelve foot base, 5000 gallons of water recirculated every hour. The fountains run anywhere from $200. to $3500. So you can see there is a big range.
Edward was very enthused about the hand painted Italian volcanic rock table. It was very colorful and unusual. There were also inlaid tile table tops in various patterns and colors. Also on display were handsome hand painted plates from Italy.
I liked the pebble pots made in India. They were resin cast then very carefully had put pebbles in one piece at a time. They looked like gray, smooth beach stones. Available in different sizes and you can put them on a basin that goes in the ground with recirculating water for a delightful fountain. There were three sizes on display, I think it would be a nice addition to anyone's garden to have all three as they were all different heights. What a statement! Another fountain made in the same way was of slate rock, all stacked one on top of the other on a pre-casted pot.
Also found in Annie's Garden were plants for small pots to huge silk trees. Garden benches of cast stone would make a nice addition.
