On Mother's Day, we think a lot about mothers. That's because we have all had one! Some of us are one. Many of us find a card to give to our mother on this special day that speaks to us. Others also buy Mom (or themselves!) a special gift. Well, at the Doylestown Food Market we have tons of great gifts to go with that special sentiment.
Gifts for Mom
On April 30, we will have an awesome jewelry sale in the store with handmade jewelry from one of our herbalists, Sharon Moncrief.
On May 1 and May 7 there will be a special sampling of Christine's Garden of Beauty products with lovely gift packages for Mom.
On May 7 our wonderful member and artist Nancy Taylor is selling her mosaic earrings and mirrors from 10:30-12:30.
We have organic plant starts for the Mom who loves to garden.
We have a wide assortment of gift baskets already made up, and can do custom baskets with a day’s notice filled with that special something that you know the special Mom in life (you, your spouse, your friend, your child, your grandmother. a mother-to-be) will love. Candles, soaps, tea, honey, coffee, jam, bubble bath, a special chocolate....
