The Arboretum’s Gift & Garden Store in the Oswald Visitor Center is open for shopping even though Arboretum buildings remain closed. In addition to Arboretum-themed apparel, the shop has the largest collection of garden books for sale in the upper Midwest. You’ll also find home decor, jewelry, puzzles, gardening supplies, personal care items and snacks, as well as children’s books, toys and games.
Members, make a reservation to visit the gardens from June 19-28 to swing by the Gift & Garden Store for Double Discount Days. You’ll get 20 percent off shop purchases–instead of the usual 10 percent. (Not a member, yet? Become a member to get free entrance to the Arboretum and take advantage of Double Discount Days and other member perks.)
The shop is open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. daily and only allows 10 shoppers at a time. Find the shop entrance on your right as you walk between the visitor center and Snyder Building to enter the gardens. Call the shop at 612-301-7619 with questions.
Kick the day off right with a true Minnesota breakfast: pure maple syrup from the Arboretum drizzled over Sturdiwheat pancakes. Sip your coffee or tea from an Arboretum flower pot mug. Need a quick gift? Pack it all up on a Minnesota tray (shown in the background).
From Bird Bingo to bird guides, bird-lovers of all ages will find something to delight. The store is well-stocked with puzzles, bird figurines, bird feeders and houses, as well as gardening supplies.
Whether you’re looking for a little gift or want to add cheer to your home, there’s lots to choose from, including a selection of premium faux flowers, decorative plates, throw pillows and animal figurines. The store also carries a wide selection of natural cleaning supplies, body soaps, lotions and candles. They’re beautiful enough to keep handy on your counter and come in a variety of sweet scents.
