more sadness

When Todd read in the paper that Smith & Hawken was closing shop and having a liquidation sale, we both assumed it was just the store up on NW 23rd. Imagine my shock and surprise when we went there and found out that it was the entire company that was shutting down!

Apparently, the announcement was made internally last Thursday morning, then made public that afternoon. I found this notice in my email box this morning:

While I generally found their merchandise to be quite pricey, I loved visiting their store for inspiration and wishful thinking. Plus it was a great place to find gifts for my gardener friends.

Thanks, S&H – I'll miss you.
