Who we are…
The Garden Shoppe
This is who we are…..
The Garden Shoppe was created by friends Gale Dodds and Mike Marple in 2016.
Mike and I grew up on the same street in Santa Barbara, lost track of each other over the years and happened to reconnect in Lompoc when my kids found Mike’s train shop, so Mike and I have been friends for a very long time.
Mike has been building bird houses out of reclaimed wood for as long as I have known him and I love creating a variety of things such wood signs, succulents and lots of different yard art. We realized that our garden art and plants worked really well together so decided to open a store to make our products available to the public.
Over the last several years we have continued to grow and expand by constantly adding new items in addition to the customer favorites for your home and garden. We have also included other talented friends from our community, that work in the store, who make extraordinary items by hand.
We also added very popular locally sourced items such as local honey and La Bella Olive products.
This site represents the fun and interesting things we are proud to have created. Our inventory Is always changing as we find fun new things we want to create and share with our customers.
